Looking just super Bob(K). I will be watching to see how decide to attach the roof.

When I look at this it is very difficult to judge the size, it looks to be about a foot long, is that close? If so I have not built anything nearly that large, (yet).
Could you cut out a false floor that would fit inside to help keep it square, and maybe even give it some support, then remove it once the roof is attached?

It measures about 11"x 6". I did consider a floor, but in the end I fitted some girders across the roof space. This has given me enough rigidity to continue work on it. I may also put some girders across the high point on the 4 wall tops to act as a roof support. The Wills tile sheets would be excellent, but unfortunately they are too small to cover the gap, so it will have to be plastic card.

I can't believe I started this project nearly 3 years ago!. It was put on hold, as was the whole development of the MPD when I decided to expand my layout to double track all around. Now that work is nearing completion I am returning to the MPD.

I dusted this shed down and decided to complete it. The next phase was to fit the roof, which I have now done. I used plastic sheet embossed with roof tiles and added. Here it is being tested in position. The track will be ballasted and the shed can then be weathered:

You take better care of your long term projects than I do Bob..........the shed doesnt look as though it has suffered any of the collateral damage one might have expected after 3 years.

It fits into that corner very neatly...............I guess it is too late to cut out inspection pits but they could be mocked up/suggesred inside inside the shed?

Kind Regards

Thanks, John. You can probably see it got some white paint spilt on to it at some juncture, but that will paint out when I weather it. I could do inspection pits as the building is not fixed down yet. Something I had not considered. A good suggestion. I was also considering how to do the floor area. Nothing more will happen now until Christmas, however, as the dust covers are back on Upton and I am over in Liberia once more. How time flies.

Maybe we should have a new  topic of lets show off our two road engine sheds.;-)

Here is mine on the Bickley Central.  A modified Wills Kit, in which I based this one on a LMS design.




Thanks

William
