York station in the 1950's.

Brilliant idea to make curved platform top sections in clear plastic so the side walls can be seen and so be able to cut it to shape properly. No more pushing a coach along with a pencil by its side to make sure nothing fouls the loading gauge!

It makes life much easier. I buy 2mm thick clear 'Aerial' polystyrene sheets from B&Q, about 5' x 2', perfect for platforms. 

 

By the way, if anyone would find the artwork for the edging stones useful e-mail me at [email protected] and I'll pass it on. I've got the artwork for 4mm and 7mm scales, with or without the white line.

Those views under the train shed are wonderful. Will look great with some A1s, 3s 4s etc and their trains and I don't even like LNER!

Thanks very much everyone; it is a real joint effort, I'm just the one posting the pictures. It's just nice to be getting on with it again after lockdown. Jonathan, there will be the occasional LMS loco, they did have a shed in York. 

 

We're hoping on Friday to have all four roof sections in place; not finished, but enough to make sure they fit. Watch this space!
