Good use of Scalescene downloads but could have weathered the lurid green plastic bridge girder. 😄

Those warehouse signs behind are just lazy; they look like they've been quickly bodged up in Word or something.

Ah, proof that Time Travel exists!! Someone has come back in time from a few years ahead, and brought their British TT:120 models with them!! 😁👍

Nah, someone's just finished laying the track, ballasting and weathering. They're now testing with a short wheelbase loco first to check clearances and for any shorts before they run the bogie stock through.

It's not exactly an imaginative layout, is it? They've made the rookie mistake of having way too much track. Before they finish the detailing I think they really should simplify it a bit and use the space for something else.

Must be a newbie. You're supposed to do all your checking & testing before doing all the weathering & ballasting. 🙄🙄🙄😉😉

You're just checking you've not accidentally PVAed a grain of ballast to the rail to force the flange up over the top!

Obviously an N gauge model - but why've they used O gauge fencing ?

 

...and lamp standards!

Clearly an electrical hazard.

Some of that track on the other side of the 08 needs another ballasting...

They've found an excuse to run their Shunter's truck then 🙂

They should have weathered it first though.

Buildings are far too close together and the RTR footbridge has clearly just been dropped on top.
