More of Clarence Dock.  The wet ground is drying in places.  Mind the puddles.   More rain is forecast.

More pictures of Clarence Dock. The board is just under three feet long and six and half inches wide, (because of the door entrance.)

Yorkshire based wagons being shunted in the yard.

The rain has stopped. The ground is drying, but there are still wet patches and puddles.
The ground was 'painted' with clear varnish two or more times. The puddle is several coats of varnish then a piece of plastic over the top,

It's  not all 'prim and proper',   I love the overgrown look.

This layout looks great. I like the scrapyard.

 

Thanks for your comments,  6990WitherslackHall.   They are much appreciated.

 

Glad you like the scrapyard.    I bought a small part of it at a local exhibition.    I then added parts to it.  Parts of engine bodies that were 'butchered'  etc.  have now ended their days in the yard.   Old plastic wheels and the like  are 'rusted and weathered'  then added.  Rather simple to do.   Just something a little different from the 'norm'.

The railway line at the rear of the layout.   Not seen from the control area.

As the line is a secondary route  and  as the story goes, has just survived the 'Beeching cuts'  there is a overgrown feeling.    Not everything is 'prim and proper'  here.

When the grandchildren visit the little engines, coaches and goods wagons come out.  The vehicles are easy to handle.

 

A 'Terrier' complete with driver and fireman

Another 0.4.0 locomotive.   Originally 'Percy' from the Thomas range.  Now repainted, crew added and smoke.   Awaiting a new nameplate.

Adding 'little bits'.

 

 

The engines have driver and fireman.  The brake van has a guard.   Military personnel are on the platform with their kit.

A goods train passes through the station.  The engine was formally 'Percy'  from the Thomas range.

 

The private owner wagons are of businesses in that were (if not now)  in Leeds.

The 'rain'  has stopped.   Everywhere is still wet.   The puddles and debris have been enhanced.

Hi 6990WitherslackHall

I have a part used tin of Homebase clear matt varnish from a job done in the house.   Waste nothing and all that I thought I'd try that.    On application and a short while after it was 'milky' in colour. 

Fortunately it dried clear.  Phew!

I gave the whole area two or three coats,  the puddles a few more.

Pieces of plastic were placed over the puddles and 'bedded in'  and a little debris of coal etc.  to finish.  A two day job at a very easy pace.

 

I have just acquired some figures that need painting to finish the area.  The Salvation Army lady was one of them.

NB

Well before sat navs and the like a lorry driver was often seen 'asking the way'  to wherever.
