A great piece of work Mojo and avery innovative way of disguising the bend.:thumbs

We have probably discussed it before Mojo so forgive me, but have you a link to the CG textures site?.

Brilliant idea for your corner Mojo, and what a shed you have built, Like all above I really like the detailing of the hand rail, it finishes it off well and when you find some suitable people to go on it, that will only help, can you help a little regarding the corrugated paper that you have used, because it looks a very good choice.

:doublethumbfor making the next issue of MR, will this mean that we will have a honours board on the forum, for all of our stars., because we are just one big family really.

Thank you, guys. Looks like I'll get my 15 minutes of fame but I don't know whether they pay me for the privilege! Re the laminated corrugated paper, Alan, I got it from a shop in the North East called the Yorkshire Trading Company. It doesn't look like they are a national concern, but are a step up from Poundstretchers, who also sell corrugated paper, albeit not laminated. YTC sell all sorts of useful stuff that can be adapted to hobbies, including our own, and very cheaply. It may be that you would have an equivalent in your part of the world that would source the same material.

Here's a link to discount stores throughout the UK in case anyone wants to go looking. There might be one right near you that you didn't know about. I have also stuck this link in the Equipment & Materials Index.

Waiting on the delivery of some acrylic paints in order to start weathering the train shed I thought I'd have a go at the Peco subway steps. As supplied they do not resemble subway entrances as I remember them, being too modern in appearance. I decided to do away with the rails and hand rails as supplied, and also built up the walls around the wells with balsa and covered them with Metcalfe granite sett card. The railings are from Slaters while the posters are scanned from an insert from Model Rail, and printed out on my favourite fall back, sticky back paper A4 labels. This makes it much easier to attach them to plasticard than messing up paper print outs with glue. You then glue the plasticard to the railings.



Although the health and safety people have been out and about painting the barrow crossing edges white and putting red and white chequer restricted clearance signs on the ends of the subway girders this view does show some liberties have been taken regarding the space between the edge of the subway structure and the platform edge. It scales out at about 7 foot each side of the subway on the DOWN platform, and about 6 foot on the UP platform. Obviously I would need some sort of barriers in place at the sides but can't recall ever seeing anything in steam era photos that would fit the bill. And this would also restrict the space for the waiting passengers. Any ideas? On the other hand, from a platform level view the narrowness is not so apparent so I might let this one go. The NE tangerine station signs were printed out in Word and mounted on "turned" cocktail sticks. Well, I carved out a sort of NE finial with a scalpel. The ones above the steps read WAY OUT and platforms 1&2/3&4.



The sign on the left is for holidays in Skegness, the one on the right is extolling the virtues of the newly electrified West Coast main line, while the large one on the back is the Blue Pullman service, fictitiously running from Bradford Westgate as a sop for the closures of Bradford Exchange and Bradford Forster Square.



The other subway on the UP platform mirrors the subway on the DOWN platform. 



Maybe a clearer view of the posters.  Because a lot of the platform is hidden under the train shed roof and foreshortened then I wanted to use what space and opportunity I had to show some posters. However, it occurs to me that the platforms up to the subway steps would be covered on the prototype, which would restrict the view even more. Although I wanted to super detail a small bit of urban railway I'm worried about it getting too cluttered. I still have to add the passengers, seats, luggage, barrows and all the other paraphenalia you find on platforms. I'm going to have to think about this one.



The east end of the station. As you can see there is not a lot of platform left to place the population. Not a lot of population either. ASLEF must be out on strike.



The east end of the layout. Not much movement here since the building of the station, though I have started to place some of the signalling and relay cabinets. Begs the question just how much detail do you put in before it is over egged.



Final shot. The point motors are Springside castings.



To add to the "what's on my workbench" this is the good old Ikea cabinet that has been battered and adapted to fit whatever space I've had for modelling. Everything else gets fixed on it as well. Fluorescent angle poise magnifier light courtesy of Maplins where I seem to buy most of my tools and electrical equipment these days. The photos for inspiration are of Dewsbury Midland and Gas Works, an O Gauge layout featured a while ago in Model Railway Journal. One day, one day.

That platform subway is  really good mojo and something that you don't see very often. Most effective. Definitely worth a place in the Forum Index.

i like this, your question about how much detail you add before it gets clutted, my thoughts on this are..... i think each scene\section of a layout should have smaller scenes within it. if you are standing on a train in an urban area and looking out the window you cannot register every detail even though the train is going slow. an urban landscape is varied and clutted with bits and bobs all over the place. go for it, put the detail in and then move bits you are not happy with.

That shot with the DMU shows what a busy station you have built. It looks better and better as you add all these little items of detail. Your under pass looks very effective.

I like the retaining wall too. What colours did you use to achieve the dirty brown brick look?

You are starting to get a very urban feel to it i think its fair to say urban railway/station areas are far more cluttered than country/rural ones.

Looks great. I like those stairwells. As for clutter, the photo you posted on page 4 [with the unusual signalling] has plenty and it looks fine.

edit - this one:

I reconise that photograph it looks like ranaliegh yard at Kings cross The place where the photo was taken with  is a the end of the platform on the left hand side of the station which is a long one and is where as kids we used to go to see all the locos especially Deltics There were green and blue ones then around 1970.

There were class 31 and type 47 Brush 4`s as we knew them on the kings cross line then But Type 45 Peaks were not on the kings cross line they were only on the St Pancras midland railway which went through ST Albans my home town then.

That's a very neat bit of modelling that you have made on those subways stairs, as for extra detailing and bit and bobs, a few trolleys and luggage bags etc at the back of each would really set the scene. and your workbench is a lot More tidy than mine.

Thanks, Bob. I take your point Matt about the scenes you see from a train, or even observing a line from a fixed point. I'll just make sure I don't stick too much down so I do have the option of moving stuff around to get a balance. Bob K, I  used Inscribe Earthtone pastels brushed over yellow painted scribed card with fingers, tissue and  make up pads to represent the sooted sandstone blocks. I went from black through brown and gold to yellow to vary the shades, although the sooty black tends to dominate-the photo in fact gives it a brown tinge. I had considered fixing the finish with matt varnish, but by accident found that I could vary the shades by gently rubbing over with tissue paper. I'll keep on cluttering, Brian, and you're right, Mike, about the location. (Un)fortunately I am old enough to  remember standing there in the 50's when it was still all steam. Every time I go down to London and the train pulls out of those tunnels I have to resist the urge to go to the carriage window to see what locos are on shed-of course now the yard is a car park. As for the tidy workbench, Alan, you got the airbrushed version-we'd just done the cleaning. One day I'll maybe post a more true to life version.

Looking good Mojo as for the details go for it! For me it's the small details that realy make a good layout. Brian the pic is the yard outside Kings Cross station although the ranaliegh yard you refer to I think is just outside Paddington.;-)
