Lovely work Merv, attention to detail has paid off. I showed SWMBO some of the earlier black and white photos and she wanted to know how the engine shed had lost its roof!

Looking forward to more.

Marty

The earthing strip and lightning rod have now been attached so here's a couple of clipped pics showing two different angles of the actual and then a colour shot of my attempt. Following this is a black & white pic of a visiting 'crab', perhaps a day trip visitor from Lancashire?
I've not fitted lamps on the loco yet and the weathering is as it came, so more work to do but you get the idea.

What did you use Merv? It looks perfect.

Thanks for your kind comments guys.

Marty I used Slater's Plastikard microstrip (0.010" x 0.025") for the earthing strip and a tiny piece of guitar string for the lightning rod.

Here's another shot from a different angle :-

Nice bend in the microstrip over the roof to the rod. Did you heat it or just bend it into shape? Whichever, it looks very good.

After finishing the loco shed I couldn't resist getting another loco on track, so here's a few shots of a Black 5 arriving early on a summer day excursion from the midlands. It will need more weathering and a few tweaks but that's for another rainy day!

We see it here arriving on the turntable - viewed from the Station Road bridge behind the shed, then glimpsed thro' the trees before seeing a close-up. Finally after turning, it's seen stabled on the dead road off the turntable.

In reality this dead-end track was used quite regularly on busy summer days and I've seen as many as three locos on it, although my 'compressed' version can only accommodate two ...just!

Another bit of doodling I couldn't resist was to try to emulate smoke and steam using Adobe Photoshop Elements 9.

So using a black and white shot of my Crab 'resting on shed' (but still without lamps!), you can see below my first attempt - not up to pro standards as per the magazines but you get the idea.

If anybody wants to try but is unsure how to (as I was) then I can give a summary of the basic procedure that I used.

I won't say it adds to the sense of realism, even though it does, as it just doesn't need it! Fantastic work!

Next up I thought I'd better add more detail to the shed yard by adding various lamps, a telephone box for drivers to contact the shed foreman and various tools. I've also changed the post that should (but never was) used for attaching the water column spout chain.

The first shot is a general overview whilst in the 2nd it looks like a storm is brewing! The last shot (birds eye view) I took when the sun came out (after the storm had passed of course!) - note those lazy firemen and drivers have left the tools scattered about....rusting away!

The addition of yard lamps, water crane and engines is bringing the scene to life Merv.

Great photos and it's nice to see the lamps on 44762. Something that I'm not looking forward to doing in N scale... Adding lamps, but it has to be done... Eventually.


What's next around the shed?


Marty

Many thanks for your kind comments guys - I was hoping that the little bits of detail make a difference.

As for what's next - well this end of the layout needs two main additions to make it more complete....signals and telegraph wires.
The latter will be extremely challenging and I'm wondering, is it worth it? Has anybody else tried it and if so, what did you use?

Marty - not much else to add to the loco yard area other than more locos (of course!) and the 'little people' that make them run.
