I can't believe it been nearly four months since I updated what's been happening at Much Murkle. :oops:

I've been busy building structures which some of you may have followed on the scratchbuilding forum. It's about time that I showed how these will integrate into the layout. so here are some views of how the layout looks today.

View from the Cider House sidings approach to the station and goods yard. 



The goods shed with an interloper from the eLluva MesS



View into the station throat from under the bridge.



Across the goods yard to the station building. Weighbridge in the background.


Pannier tank running round.... errr... nothing



Pannier about to take on water. Coaling stage, coal office and coal cells are all legacies from an old long gone layout that never got finished and are just on the layout for nowto show where things will be. These will all be replaced before too long.




That's it for now. Hope it doesn't take another 4 months to do the next update :cheers

Wow Nick, you are coming right along. I really like that first photo. It looks like you have the camera sitting right down on the track.

Sure is looking good Nick!

Thanks for the encouragement guys, it's appreciated. I'll keep posting photos as and when things change on the layout, perhaps with a bit more stock about in the future.

They're all excellent shots Nick - difficult to pick a favourite but along with Wayne, I really like the first shot.  But then I also like the third one, and the forth, and the goods shed in the second one also looks great..........and that one of the station building is quite something as well.............................:thumbs:thumbs:thumbs:thumbs

If you photoshopped some sky in the top picture and did it B+W I reckon it would look pretty realistic.  More, please.

That's brilliant Doug:thumbs

Thing is, compare the bridge in the background you have photoshopped in with the one in my final photo and there is a striking similarity. Uncanny, :It's a no no but it's not Herefordshire!!!!

I can't believe how Much Murkle is starting to take shape when I see the photos especially when they have been 'improved' by someone who knows what they are doing. Just goes to show that the camera does lie :lol::lol::lol:

I've just had Winston visit Much Murkle and realised that i haven't updated the thread for over two months. So here's a new set of photos to show progress so far.

Looking from the Cider house branch the station and yard area are starting to take shape. Fencing has been erected but none of the buildings are fixed as there is still some detailing work to do on all of them. I'm not sure if I will keep both the conical water tower and the water crane at the end of the platform. One idea is to keep just the conical tower and the other is to keep just the water crane and have a seperate brick built water tower opposite the signal box. I wouldn't mind some views on this. 



Another view of the station and goods yard from under the bridge



Looking back to the bridge, there is plenty of scenic work to do here.




A similar view but showing the Cider house Branch leading of to the right. The Cider house board which will incorporate the fiddle yard still has to be built !!!



There are some more piccies to come :cheers

How come I missed this layout.....GWR branch and everything???

Excellent work Nick...........you have done a super job with the the Scalescene Paper.......I really like the Goods Shed.....how did you do the valance?

Regarding the water cranes..........I had a similar dilemma on Granby and settled for a crane at the end of the platform and a conical tank by the Engine Shed............a tank would have done equally well but looked oversize on my layout.

I dont think one would see a conical tank and a crane on the same platform...........so my vote is either conical tank alone or crane and then supply tank by signal box (assuming you dont have a shed siding in which case my solution would be ok)

Hope that helps

Kind Regards from Vancouver

Nick,
      If it were me,I'd go for the supply tank where the conical jobby is now,and somehow shorten the height of the water crane and mount it ON the platform,rather than just off the end of it.
Whatever you choose,I'm sure it'll look good!
:hmm
Cheers,John.B.:thumbs

Hi John
The Goods Shed valence is plastic. The packaging has long gone but it was a Slaters product if my memory serves me right.

I don't intend to have both the conical tower and the crane, but am having difficulty in deciding which to keep. I might try the conical tower at the end of the platform to see how it looks as an alternative.

Hi John B

:hmm A separate tower with a platform mounted crane rather than at the end might be worth a look at. Thanks for that.

Nick,
      Its just that a lot of the GWR water cranes I've seen in old pictures and on preserved GWR lines are on the platforms,and for the water tank supply,you have the option of either one on 4 legs as at Perranporth,or ones on a brick base...both common GWR types.

Cheers,John.B.:thumbs

P.S.If you need any reference pictures,give us a shout and I'll try to root some out for you.

Thanks for the offer of photos John, I'll bear that in mind for the future when I finally get round to deciding which way to go. I'm leaning towards the conical tower at the moment as Much Murkle is such a small terminus I don't think it can justify having a substantial structure.

Anyway to digress here are some more photos, again proving there is much scenic work still to do.

The coal bins. The area enclosed by the retaining wall will house the coal merchants office. This hasn't been built yet as I can't decide between a brick built or timber hut. I suppose that having gone to the expense of building a retaining wall then the office should really be in brick too.



A close up of the coal bins. These were made out of strips of balsa wood and painted grey with washes of black to give a really grimy look. The coal is real, stuck onto polystyrene formers with pva glue.



As you can see lots of work to do on the banks behind.

I'll post some more up in a couple of days as I'm of up to London now to see the Australian Pink Floyd at the 02 Arena tonight.

 

:cheers
