Great stuff Ed and don't sweat about funding, since mini-layouts and dioramas attract additional budget!
Lorries are a must of course for coal yards and easily made realistically grubby with dark washes and cotton buds. 

You are so obviously enjoying the build :)

I'm a real 'beginner' when it comes to scenery Max.

Trouble is I keep painting this or that, then thinking something else would look good, or start cutting up matchsticks to make a barrow crossing ......................................

Making the coal lorry grubby is one of the next jobs Bill.

Of course I had to buy some coal sacks to go on the back, another £2.60 :lol:

I haven't actually run a loco all week.

Making 'the scene' look right is becoming a bit addictive.

Yep, addiction isn't all bad though! John Day does white metal figures humping coal sacks for a few pounds and a stack of folded empty sacks can look good near some scales or on the lorry bed.

Yup, breaking some records over there this year... here we've had the 2nd highest February rainfall in recorded history and the upper parts of the river where the vineyards are have just been declared Natural Disaster Zone status from flooding... the Shiraz harvest has been devastated :cry:

The weightbridge has arrived and I've just plonked the packet roughly where I think it should go.

The red line indicates where I want to try and make a road from the coal yard, although I am making a couple of barrow crossings in the middle.



General view.



Thinking of replacing the goods shed with this bit of platform and the crane.



The platform needs another repaint and the crane has yet to be painted and fixed on.



Don't like the cotton, but I've manged to source a chain to replace it.

Not sure about the hook either, looks a bit big to me.

That chap with the shovel gets around a bit.



Ed

Bob K found that the best thing to represent the cable on a crane was a bit of fine brass rod soldered or glued in place and then painted Ed.
I actually like the way the goods shed hid some of the scene?

cheers

Sort of basing the crane on this Marty.

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/31/Old_Crane%2C_Bishop%27s_Stortford_-_geograph.org.uk_-_1616552.jpg

It's a few miles up the road from me and it's actually on the river, but similar design and purpose.

Don't know about the Goods Shed. Somehow it seemed too big, but the again :hmm

Ed,
That fits better while still creating a bit of a view block and therefore interest. 
You'll be able to set up a road vehicle loading cameo on the road side too... and a little awning to keep them dry?

Marty

Empty Sacks....little 3 x 4mm squares of elastoplast cut from the ends of plasters (the cloth sort) will stick together in semi-neat pile, and painted black/brown should look O.K.
