Good thoughts Dave... how about a range of platform accessories. The vending machine was very good.
Platform seating too?

Have thought about that Marty although Bachmann have just brought out some modern platform stuff. Well good news is that the canopy has found a new home so just need to stop playing with the new car and finish it off! :roll: ;-)

The lighting works beautifully Dave. Brings back memories of many hours spent on platforms late at night and in the early hours of the morning. The buildings were different in those days and the light wasn't as bright but the atmosphere was more or less the same.

Thanks for all the comments guys. Well this current project is coming to a close with the boxing up of the buildings this morning so I guess we will next see them on a layout not to far away! Yesterday I was at my brother in laws place again so the oppitunity was there to stock up with foamex offcuts. Needless to say I got a nice binbag full. Best find of the day however was an airbrush. This was found after we ripped down a wall that was part of a spray booth. All the bits had come out of the box but a rummage through the crap on the floor provided the box and contents. Never used one before so another new skill to learn! Must tidy up the workroom before I start my next project. :roll:

I'll really look forward to your experiences learning to airbrush Dave.

I've got a brand new one sitting here awaiting enough courage to have a bash with it. :roll::roll:

Great news about the bib-bag of foamex. :thumbs  More buidling materials on stock eh :cheers:cheers

Now that Shauns station buildings have been done my attention has turned to my next westcoast projects. First I will be fitting some clear shelves to the see through case so that I can take a couple of things to shildon tomorrow. Once done I can then build a couple of display buildings to keep in the case for promotional purposes! That brings me on to my next subject....

Ok... I live in Woodham Village that is part of the new town of Newton Aycliffe. The town was first devloped in 1947 when the old bomb factory was converted into an industral estate. Now over the past 60 years the town has grown slightly! Out town centre was first built in the mid 1950's and slowly added to over the years. Origanaly there was a road that ran through the town centre with shops down each side that resembled a traditional high street. In the early 1970's phase two was started with a more heaver look to the buildings and road was removed. This has led to two completly diffrent styles of buildings. In the 1980's the local development corporation was disolved and Sedgfield council took over running the town. One thing they did was to sell off the town centre to some devlopers in London who then put up all the rents and efectivly killed off the town that I remember as a kid. Anyway back on topic there have been plans to redevlop the town and finaly after 20 years of waiting work is starting. First to go will be the old library. This is the reason for this post as im going to model it as a promotional model then contact the local paper and try and get an artical done that will show off the model and plug the business! So this morning I took the camera 'shopping' and took a few pics whilst the mrs was in the shops. Here we have the library....

  



Very similar in style to the westcoast buildings, easy to build and can be added to the westcoast portfolio.











Next to the library is the old health centre. This is also to be demolished soon...





When origanal built the library and health centre stood at the side of the old road that was later built on with this....














The green boards cover the old shop fronts, windows and open walkways.









Im supprised that this bit is still accessable. Origanaly you colud walk right through here. On the right is the entrance to the old rent office.












 The other end of the walkway came out here...



Note the unusal roof. I think that it looks like an open packet of rennies! This section is still used as there are still a few shops up here although out local MP has just moved out so that work can start on demolition....











Another town landmark that is to go will be the old ADC offices and the town clock.....













 So there we go lots of prototype pics of buildings that once were common in the UK and are slowly disapearing. I will take the camera back down tomorrow when the town is quieter. ;-)

Dave I see you have gone back to photobucket for these latest pictures. I am not querying your choice of host it's just a question of my asking if you are having a problem with our Gallery. If so I need to know about it.

That's good then Dave. You're thinking better than I am actually as I hadn't considered the photographs content.

Work has started on the case. After some thought I have decided to split the case in to two bits. The bottom section will have a length of track, station platform and a station building. The top will proberly have a signal box. Heres the bottom....










Question is can I build the bottom section in 4 1/2 hours before Casino royal comes on at 9pm? Watch this space.....

Quick progress report whilst I print off the brick papers. After about an hour I had balasted the track and built the platform....







At the moment I have got all the internal supports cut and the front and back walls......







I must have lost about half an hour build time looking for stuff and fixing the hoover for the mrs! Right back to work the clock is ticking!!
