Thank you for your interest Lads.  
Peter-  The Metcalfe  station seats come in two types ,GWR and plain as i have used.  You get 4 single benches and 1 double bench in each packet.  You can find these together with park benches on the Metcalfe web site.    They make up easily and are self coloured.
They come with a what they call a jig printed on the card.   This is a stiff folded piece of card that is supposed to hold the bench uprights in place while you glue the wooden slats on.  I may be heavy handed but i found they  bench uprights would not hold in the jig very well.  It was easy to stick these uprights on to double sided tape which held them firm on the workbench.  When spacing these out, one has to go by the printed bolt holes in the slats in order to glue the slats in the appropriate spot.  They recommend using UHU which takes a little while to dry ,with the jig one can only make up one seat at a time , with the double sided tape method they can all be made up in a few minutes.

Max- The weathered class 24 came pre weathered ,is one of my best runners ,you know you get one loco that never lets you down ,tha,ts the one.  Its a Bachmann .

Spent a pleasent few hours with Bob (novice) yesterday , who was kind enough to "get the photos up"  Thanks Bob .
I still struggle to get photos on here myself , something i do wrong ( among plenty of ether things).

Thanks again for looking in.

Could not get the text up with the photo together .  The first picture is of course Dooferdog and Marty.  The second an attempt to Anglatise a continental station for Blossom Hill .  Does not look right so will try something else.
Oh yes sent via Firefox.

Yesterday I paid a short visit to Blossom Hill and took a few pictures. Reg has redone the canal water:





New lights on the platforms:



An unnoticed corner - note the razor wire:



New station building:



A news stand:



And some trains:











Hard at work draughtsmen in the office next to the canal:

Thanks for the kind comments lads,and to Bob for taking the pictures.
There is a waste effluent barge to sit on the canal together with some workers. a fisherman waiting to be put in place ,and a few ducks ,then i can turn attention to other jobs .
In particular an olde worlde building and stables with  some filming going on. an excuse for a hansom cab and some period characters..
Don't know when though as its gardening time really ,
Thanks again .

I can,t see how to start a new topic so i will post on here.   I have what i think is a problem with my prodigy controller.
It will operate locos in the normal manner , but when Novice and i fitted a train tech signal to the track in accordance with the method used on his layout at home.  We got the smoke from the accessory decoder, which of course promptly burnt out.                 I checked the voltage on the track to find 2 volts dc  and 20 volts ac .  All literature and the unit itself states that the operating voltage is 15 volts dc.
So then i sent the unit back to Gougemaster, explaining what i had found ,and asking for the unit to be repaired. I was pleased when it arrived back in the post ,but without an invoice for repairs.  However they included a note that no fault was found.
I bought a new multitester and tried again with obtained the same 20 volt ac reading as before.  i telephoned the Gougemaster tech dept today and was told this is normal ,referring to  the workshop notes taken by the Gougemaster tech boys .a normal test was carried out and no fault found.
Novice is back at work abroad now so i am unable to enlist his help.  Would any prodigy owner be kind enough to check the track voltage on their layout and advise me what they find.
I really am at a loss just now as something is wrong somewhere and Gougemaster will not agree .  I am not looking for a freebie repair here ,but they say nothing is wrong.
