Hi Alan

I do tend to adapt ready to plonk stuff where I can, Thus the platforms above but with simple things like this its often easier to scratchbuild it than adapt something. To be fair I didn't look to see if anything is available as it would probably have taken longer to look for it than to knock it up from bits of wire and plastic.

Regards

Jim

I have heard people use enamels before but not wet on wet
The same technique as I used on my girder bridge plate sides. One has grey, black and olive green all together and the other has shades of grey. Both were painted wet on wet.

Wonderful work mate. Love the test plank - would make an ideal exhibtn layout by itself. Love the brick weathering, very atmospheric. Remember approaching the bowels of New St from the SW behind a peak or 50 and feeling the "dankness" of the cuttings and tunnels- you've captured that very well.

Er, have a fair amount of stock to assist with from 1979 - 1989 if you're short of a loco or two!

Hi Brian

Along with the dog I have 3 cats too. Does Henry parrot fly around your house? I know nothing about keeping birds.

Cheers

Jim

Who is letting parrots out of bags?  That is a good thing; they sould never be in bags in the first place!

Hi Jim

I love the metal girders that make the bridge supports above the line. Are they scratchbuilt?

Hi

If you mean the ones visible on the right of this picture then no, they are the Wills Verigirder parts.  If you mean something else then yes as aside from these and the platforms everything else is scratchbuilt.

Cheers

Jim

The junction boxes and wiring on the brick work look great, very prototypical and so very rearly modelled

 Yes, I agree, most of us tend to miss out these little details

As you guys have already mentioned, it's in the details, but it's also from looking at other layouts, and photo's like the one above, that we can all learn from, which then improves our own layouts.

Hi Alan

I dont actually tend to look at other layouts too much if I am honest. I can go and look at the real thing whenever I need too.

Hi All

Had a few days to chip away at stuff on the layout.  The following are progress so far, I left the road off so that you can see! 



I have now got all of the platform ramps in for this end of the station and nearly all of the edges.  Also made a start of the arched wall that is located on plaforms 2 and 3.



This is the view I get!   :D



And this will be your view



Finally installed some of my etched troughs and started on ballasting, If I do a bit now and then its not too much of ball ache!

Cheers

Jim
