Perhaps wrongly titled, but all those details that go to make a platform look 'used'. I need some ideas for things to model for the garden layout to be.
I have made wine barrels (to prove its French), crates, and sacks, what else would there be in about 1910?

Perhaps milk churns, or (if it's a rural station) some farm animals such as chickens or geese or dogs roaming free. Just thinking aloud :roll:

Thanks Tim I can almost hear the brain ticking away! Yes most definately a rural station.
As a matter of interest what would have been going on on your chosen line in 1910?

Mike

If you have a look at 'members prototype photographs' under Dereham Station Oct 2007, there is a picture of typical platform clutter. This may help.

how about 4 or 5 soldiers returning after leave, they could have kit bags weapons etc, it would make a nice mini scene within the station. maybe an old army Bedford outside the station :wink:

Oddly enough, Mike, the very same stuff :o I only goes to show that stations and eras across the world have more in common than they have differences. Perhaps the crates or churns are a different shape of colour, but it's all "country."
