Looking good, Phil (well the signal box anyway ;-))

What would really be of interest is how you coloured the station stone work and what colours you used then I could tell everyone that I invented it !


Really inspiring stuff mate.

Mmmm!...you can't really see the signal box Allan, I made sure it was far enough away :mutley

Re the paintwork, I covered the stonework with a chocolate type colour, then added MODEL COLOR German Cam. Med.Brown/  Green Grey/   Fieldgrey WW11 and Humbrol 72, all matt of course, I might still give everything a dirty black/green/brown wash though as that's the colour in my area,  © © © © and Naa!...My invention! © © © © :chicken

Thanks Ed.

Not to worry, Allans box will get good coverage when it's weathered and bedded in :mrgreen:

There is a little matter of the track ballast being out of scale, this was done before I knew better about twenty six years ago, there's a lot of it and difficult to reach :roll:

There's three possibilities, leave as it is, (not really), dig it all up and re-lay finer ballast or add finer ballast to it which would fill in the areas between the big stuff?

Re the ballast, Phil.

Try a section first by 'blinding' it with a very fine dust powder, not N gauge ballast as I think it will be too heavy.


Anyway, just a thought and the ballast as it is looks just fine to me. Check out a close up of real track work and you'll see  just how heavy looking real ballast was/is.

Actually each stone would be around 6" in  diameter, I have some very fine stuff which should should fill in and balance things out a tad.

Been doing other stuff lately but here's a new picture of Pen y bryn Colliery.

I don't know if there's a way of making the attached picture bigger?

Click on what looks like a white exclamation mark in a red circle top right just under the exit cross, Phil, and you can expand the picture almost as large as you like.

Cheers mate, and welcome back.

"Click on what looks like a white exclamation mark in a red circle top right just under the exit cross"

You're looking at something different than me Allan?
