An interesting thread - and very useful where you've named where you get the kits and accessories from. I'll be referring back to this. Looks really good! Cheers, Andrew

Last week I received the final building again from @jrbat JSModels and over a couple of days had built and painted the kit.

 

All that’s left to do is to glaze it and possibly put some interior lights and an interior into it. 
 

The goods shed has also seen a bit of paint attention to make it look better and just requires weathering and lights too.

 

Finally I have used some balsa wood and started to make the infills for the concreted section, just need to remember what thickness it is and order some more.

As much as I like a Terrier (and I have two, although one has damaged superstructure and is simply a chassis donor for another project!) I have to admit to falling in love with your blue Peckett B2! To the point that I am now looking to buy one! Of course, being a numpty, I have left it until nobody has any in stock! Doh!!

 

Great looking layout - can't wait to see what you do next!

I used to spend hours exploring Peartree Green as a kid - it would have been even more exciting if it had ever looked like this! I was chuffed if I could find the odd vacuum hose or sleeper from the sidings that were once there. In model terms I always thought the Supermarine works would have made a fantastic excuse for some interesting wagon loads. Impressed with your take though - the dock gate to me looks very similar to that of the main docks. I seem to recall that Customs House there is stone whilst, much of the other around is brick, so there is local examples of the stone/brick mix. I will follow your progress with interest!

Thanks Steve, its coming along nicely.

 

Should be some updates early next week as i've got a long weekend from the big railway and a stash of details on their way currently. 

 

The B2 is rather nice, its orignally a NCB one however it has had a coat of Revell Flat blue over the top and will be weathered over time too. 

 

The New Hornby one coming out later this year would be a good match, NCB, Peckett B2 Class, 0-6-0ST, 1203/1910 'The Earl' - Era 6

Thanks, very much a what might have been!

 

The gate is modelled directly on the main dock one, thought it would make a good addition.

Some more work on the smaller area in front of the fiddle yard.

 

Installed some P & D Marsh lamps and some Scale Model Scenery dockside chain and post fencing.

 

Being laser cut wood it’s very flimsy and I’m not sure it’ll stand the test of time, I guess we shall have to see. 
 

Finally a BR invasion with the terrier and B4 on the layout.

The Peartree Green Dock Company’s latest acquisition was tested late this evening. 
 

A chain driven Sentinel has been bought by the dock company, painted in their trademark blue and can be seen pottering around the lines. 
 

Actually it’s a Hornby Sentinel resprayed by Shane Wilton and fitted with a Hornby R8249 decoder.

There’s been some progress in the last few days with a bulk haul of items from Model Railway Scenics, these 3D printed items are just superb and really make the layout come to life, just waiting for some wood coloured paint to paint the crates.

So I’ve been working on one of the boards with a boat load of Model Railway Scenes 3D prints (no connection just a very satisfied customer) and below are some photos. 
 

I decided the fence line in front of the low relief Buildings just didn’t suit the layout but luckily these wall and spear fence combos look amazing on the layout. 
 

They are a pig to paint how I wanted them but never the less worth the effort.

Progress on Peartree had slowed down not helped by only having one board to work on. 
 

Armed with an improvement plan, I spoke to @JSModelsand asked Jonathan if he’d be willing to draw and cut me another custom building based on his range, the intention to make the layout look more uniform quality wise as I was never happy with the LCut Warehouse (if anyone wants to buy it let me know).

 

The kit from Jonathan arrived yesterday and I’ve wasted no time in getting on with it, it’s a bit further than these photos now but as I’ve hit the tedious painting of window frames I’ve not got any others as of yet. 
 

Next improvement will be working yard lights to replace the naff PD Marsh ones, any suggestions on lights would be appreciated.
