Thanks, Les. I don't know about you but sometimes I get so bound up in what I'm doing eg the train shed, subway etc that it takes some time before it eventually occurrs to me that I haven't run any trains recently. Just a quickie to prove that ASLEF isn't out on this particular Sunday though they are running their trains very quietly to avoid waking the sleepers in. Sorry about the quality but unless Santa puts a digicam in my stocking this Christmas then I have to keep on using the video option on my stills camera. Not ideal but at least the movement gives a better scale to the station.

Too right I do Mojo but it's rarely the layout. At least you are concentrating on one area in order to finish it. I haven't run trains for weeks now (not even the rare goody I brought back from KMRC in October) and I seem to be flitting from one project to another e.g. loco depot, scenic hill, tunnel entrance, turntable, etc etc etc. all of which are taking that much longer to finish.

I wish I had your sense of direction and tenacity.

Les

Les, the only way I can keep it organised is to write down a list of "jobs" and try and keep to them, once I've sorted out the order in my head. As I see it I have to finish either something that is self contained eg the station, or areas on the far side that mean me reaching over the layout in order to access it, otherwise I damage everything at the front of the layout. At the moment I am gradually building up the weathering on the station which has to be done before the platforms can be detailed/populated etc. I think most modellers move from one thing to another as they go along, as this is one of the appeals of the hobby. And if you ever do get it finished then it's the Rector's axe and start again.

Christmas, New Year, up and down the GNER to London and back, hasn't left much space for modelling or logging on to the forum, although I suspect I have more time than a lot of people. Finding myself with a relatively clear week ahead I decided to crack on and finish the weathering of the station shed, fit the canopies and lights, and also the barrow crossing lights. The following are in no particular order:



A sort of night time shot, showing the lights under the new canopies.



More of the same.



And again.




Crossing details. Excuse the lumps of crud supporting the little people-their final resting place has not been decided. Lamps courtesy of Ekkon.



Three items that actually do what they say on the tin. The Peak will pull anything, the Dapol cleaner, especially with the vacuum element saving me having to retrieve fine detail from the small vacuum I've tried to use in the past, is magic, while the CMX cleaner, along with Isopropyl alcohol inside it, cleans everything.

 



Closer shot of the platform canopies. They are made of a mixture of card, balsa, Plaststruct, sticky back labels and perspex. The glazing bars are made from photos of industrial windows printed to scale on sticky back paper A4 labels and then the glass in the printed photos is cut out with a scalpel (new blade) before sticking down to the perspex. Another advantage is that as you pull of the sticky label to put on the perspex then the waxed backing paper is left behind as a copy of the glazing bars, and ready for further use. As the glazing bars in the photos were already a sort of NE blue I didn't have to try to paint them. Lights are from LEDs with bits of Knightwing flanges for light shades. Maybe the following pictures makes the glazing bar bit more intelligible:



This shows the photos copied onto the A4 label. The blue sky bits are to be removed. I made the mistake of going for a more intricate glazing than necessary with the centre skylights. Once started I had to finish.

 

This shows the backing paper (white) which can be used for further window glazing.



The bars stuck to the perspex prior to being fitted to the canopy roofs. As you can see they have already been weathered in the photo. They seem to adhere to the perspex fine as long as you press them down well with the handle of the scalpel. Having saved them in Word I should be able to resize them, bigger or smaller, to make up some of the windows as can be seen on the backdrop in the top right hand corner of the following photo. I've never seen a sky reflected off glass that blue in the West Riding of Yorkshire.




This shows the weathering of the shed and the canopies in a daylight shot.



The crossing at night time. Seems day and night mean nothing to our intrepid workers. Signs on the crossing are taken from photos and scanned and reduced to size.



The eastern approaches at dusk. Haven't decided what to do with the open baseboard to the left, other than some non descript railway buildings. May end up going for the scenic wasteland look. Signals still have to be built and installed as well as making up and painting a population to fill those platforms, as well as benches, trolleys etc. Once this corner is complete then it'll be time to move on to some sort of backscene above the retaining walls to frame the layout more.

The stacker continues to trundle on, disgorging trains when and where I want them. I did manage to lay the last remnant of my track supply on the lowest level, making ten shelves in total. Overkill I know, but then hopefully there's still a lot of birthdays and Christmases to come yet.

Cheers.

Feast or famine time. I tried taking some "night time shots" merely using the light from the crossing lamps and station lights. One day I'll learn how to tone down that yellow cast.
