All good stuff.

Perhaps give some thought to Doug's cardboard oil drums and workbench - they are brilliant.

Lots of interest on this thread.

Do you have any figures to add?

Mike


Figures for this age are difficult...modern representations of the period figures are too brightly coloured [IMHO]...

I believe the Dapol figures are O.K. for period, easily adapted etc but need painting. S*d of a job!

For instance, I've never seen B+W pictures of engine/yard crews where the jackets matched the 'trews', but resolutely the commercial models churn them all out in the same 'new' set of tops and bottoms.

[Unless anyone knows different...]


On the other hand look at Shaftesbury, modern setting, modern colours...Result!

Thanks everyone it's good to get encouraging comments.

Mike - I have a few but they are mainly the old airfix / dapol figures and not really suitable for what I want to use. In time I may try and alter some of them into different poses. Some better figures are on my Warley shopping list. :thumbs

The layout isn't really ready for figures just yet though as I still have quite a bit to do on this board. Then I have the second board to "vegetate" and then I still have to build the fiddle yard :brickwall

Hoo yeah! Coming along very nicely.
A light dusting of weathering poweders on that passenger platform might break up the "new look".

This is really excellent scenic modelling Nick and very enjoyable to watch.

Although they still have to be painted, Monty's Models do some excellent people, your period included, although they are metal and a bit pricey. Having said that I believe you dont want many, this is a country station in the days when railways were as much a service to the community as a profit making business andpopulating it with too many people could be OTT.   Just the odd passenger, railwayman and workman would be sufficient in my eyes.:thumbs

Hi Marty - Yes you are right the platform does need toning down and it will be done in due course.

John - Very pleased that you like the Goods Shed. The build was detailed on this thread if you are interested in seeing more of it http://yourmodelrailway.net/view_topic.php?id=4854&forum_id=14&page=1

Les - Thanks for the info, I was going to check out Monty's Models figures when visiting the Warley show later this month. My thoughts are the same as your, it only need a few strategically placed.  PS - I voted for your layout in the NRM Competition;-)

Here's another photo after I installed the yard gates.




:cheers

Weighbridge Mark II is now complete




It needs a coat of matt varnish before bedding it in to the surroundings.

:cheers

Super shot Nick. I really like the way you have bedded in, and weathered, the weigh bridge itself.  Somehow your photos convey a  wonderful sense of a sleepy English country lane in the middle of summer......I keep looking for the pub :lol:

With the basic scenery nearly finished on board 1, I thought it was about time I made a start on getting board 2 up to the same level.

 

I've been putting this off because I was not happy with the fiddle yard end of this board and couldn't decide how best to approach it.

This old picture shows the exit to the fiddle yard under the bridge and the private industry line going through a cutting onto the next board. This is the bit that was causing me problems. The road over the bridge turns at 90 degrees and looks odd. I'd originally intended the cutting to be rock faced but came to the conclucion it just doesn't look right. 




I still want the road to turn through 90 degrees and lead to the industry (Cider House) but decided another bridge over the cutting would look better. So some major surgery was necessary to incorporate the retaining walls and bridge. Unfortunately I got carried away and forgot to take any photos until everything was patched back together. The extent of the rework has just been painted brown before flocking




A bridge was knocked up in card and Scalescenes paper. I wanted a very different style to the other bridge. This is meant to be a country lane joining the B road going over the fiddle yard bridge at a T junction on the 90 degree bend, so a smaller more rustic style was called for.



I don't know quite what the civil engineers would say to a bridge being suspended in mid - air by a couple of pieces of blu-tac but this gives an idea of what it will look like.



There will be fencing in between the two bridges. Once the paint dries, it can have a base coat of flock and then I can vegetate it to my hearts content.

Whilst the glue and plaster were drying I took the opportunity to do something about the lack of a buffer stop at the end of the loading bay. The white bits are wet pva glue:roll:




:cheers

Looks great Nick..........the two different bridges link together nicely

That close up of the buffer is excellent.......the vegetation and weathering  are particularly good

Regards

Classy stuff!  The bridge abutments are just right for the spot.

I really like the buffer stop, the platform edging looks very neat and effective. Excellent job.

I know it's winter and the UK is shivering with the deep freeze but anyone would think it was spring in Much Murkle the speed at which the grass has been growing at the other end of the layout.



The embankment on the other side of the track has sprouted a fence and some undergrowth and bushes










Even some weedy type flowery thingies that are meant to be rosebay willow herb. anyway they bring a bit of colour to the embankment.



The area around the signal cabin (not fixed yet




More rosebay willow herb (sorry... weedy flowery thingies:roll:) and some red flowery thingies (poppies maybe??)



Remember that coal stage from a couple of weeks back






and the embankment at the station end near the cattle dock




Finally a shot looking back down the line




:cheers
