The S15 has departed, but it really, REALLY needs some Crew soon.

First job this morning was another little Run, as I'm contemplating moving the Level Crossing further away from the Station to give me more room to Run around Stock without affecting the Gates. This will also mean another Signal Box for the Gates and another two Signals to protect the crossing.

I then made a start on the Station Building.

 

Once I removed a couple of windows, and put them back in the RIGHT WAY UP it started to look better. Still more to do like the canopy supports etc.

Cheers Ray and Chris,

 

This morning saw a start on the Level Crossing. As I said yesterday, I was thinking of moving it further away from the Station to give more room for Shunting without interfering with the Road.

This I have done this morning and I'm happier with it now.

The Bachy boxes represent some Grass embankments / Cuttings to hide the Road disappearing.

Next phase will be to finish making the gates up properly, but I will do the Scenics around them first.

Cheers mate, and yes the Thumper does look good.

 

Our mate Nick Pallet has just built another 5ft 6 inch Layout called Catsfield (Edited to add an s), which I hope to see before we move, here's some pics he sent me yesterday.

Just 4 Points and all Bullhead Track and looks superb and simple.

All looks great Andy, I'll agree with the comment about the Thumper, it does look good. There's one on my local heritage line and I always think about building a small station and getting the model every time I see it.

Catfield looks very good as well, are there any more pics of it anywhere? :)

Coming along nicely, Andy! :)

Morning Dan, Thanks for you endorsement and comment, I've wanted to do a Rural Branch for many years, in fact I did make a start with one on here; Trewithen, but that fell at the first hurdle, as after ballasting there was some Ballast over some sleepers. When I came to remove it, the PVA or whatever I had used at the time was like a latex, and bent the Rails as I tried to tidy it up.

Hopefully this project will last a little longer.

Went straight to the last post on the thread and started to scroll up and saw the last of the photos first and thought "My God he's quick and he has bought another loco".

 

Then I scrolled up further and realised you are just human after all.

 

Catfield does look nice.
