You have made a really good job of the Wills kit Michael and its fits in well with your Linka building

Thank you very much gentlemen!  I enjoyed making it.... in time I might try a bit of kit bashing, but following the instructions for now while I learn

While I await delivery of the turntable (it's delay is because of me, not ADM) I have been thinking about the layout of the quayside, the station area and the next feature, the Abbot's hotel, which will be placed on an area of raised ground which drops down to the railway cutting.

My original plan for the quay probably  had too much track, but now there is to be a turntable, there is less room so I have had to simplify it.  I will probably work it out once I have the TT installed - at least I know where that is going!

The first platform for the station is almost complete, so I need to think about the backdrop and any buildings which may appear nearby, as well as what the station will look like.  In my re-imagined world, the station is a little bigger than the original halt, even though it transported hundreds of workers at the time, as ell as all the freight.

So I have continued with the build of the hotel.  The front is now complete.....

I've added some "glass" to the windows...





And some interior detail to the "drawing room".

“Windows” printed on overhead transparency Michael? Something I’ve Always wanted to do but have not, as yet, tried. 
That building is quite imposing!

Yes Marty, exactly that.  I've added a couple of stained glass windows in  exactly the same way.  Just can't print white windows!



This is probably my fourth go at the building - the others were either too small when put in position, or just not quite right.  I used them for lots of practice of different techniques though, so not wasted.  

You know how it is when you sit and plan your dream railway, you put everything in... only to discover space is not as great as you imagined (maybe it is less of an issue in N gauge!) Well, that was my exact experience, so I had to take things out.  The Creek was a given.... and I decided to cut out most things and just sort of hint at their existence in the layout. But one thing which stayed was to have a feature building - the hotel - sitting in the countryside.  So it has rather grown to take up a substantial part of the plan!

Mother's Christmas present was a brand new Epson inkjet printer... might be a time for a visit and some testing!  :lol:
I well know about the compromises we need to make in this hobby, even in N gauge there is never enough room and I too have had to hint at scenes that would otherwise take up more floor space than I have available. 

I think that I may have talked T into assisting with an exhibition layout sometime in the future... modular, transportable and .... uh... expandable... little does she know.  :mutley

That would be great to hear about Marty - and lucky you!  My wife, D, definitely only tolerates my hobby! I asked her once if she would prefer if I was in the loft or in a casino..... she had to think about it!!!

  I am always so amazed by how you model so beautifully in N gauge, but your work was one of three or four that I read that finally got me out my armchair modelling and dreaming and to get started on making something.

 Would you still model in N gauge? Would it be a different area? Or time?  I keep thinking of different things I would like to have a go at modelling.  I really need to win the lottery!!  I would buy modelling space....

Orange Pekoe please.... and maybe a scone! What’s the local specialty cake?

As for the Exhibition layout... it’s early days yet. 

If I had my way it would be an early 1900 Western Australian logging line through the bush in 1:64. There is a group of locals here in Perth who produce engine and rolling stock kits and several layouts of prototype main line locations from around the South West of the state. Or maybe one of the wheat belt towns with the line running down the centre of the street and federation style pubs and colonial buildings. T grew up in Wagin so that could help.

Everything has to be scratch built to reflect the prototype. :roll:

Ah!  I should have guessed it would not be something straight forward Marty!  Sounds wonderful though.

I'm not sure we have a local speciality cake - but a good line in cream teas!  Sorry, right out of Orange Pekoes, in the words of Basil Fawlty!

Regards

Michael

Orange Pekoe! I thought my wife was the only one who drank that brew.

But that distracts me from the Headmaster's restaurant: WOW

Cheers
