For a short term proposition, I did update those USA outline tanks as below



and as expected just after I stuck on the Chidgey & Son label, the ones from Knightwing arrived - it is big.

 With all the various tanks I have coming, I will have enough now for all of my Oil storage needs.

That's a very nice looking tank Sol but I still think I'd see about cladding the tresles with brick paper for a UK scene..............:roll::roll:

A few photos of Charde from different angles










The bus driver took the corner very wide !!

The yellow sleepers are  magnets located for uncoupling Kadees.

That all sits together very well, Sol, especially the old rails near the buffer stops but as Peter said the big bulk tank should either be on brickwork, or, criss-cross stacked ex-sleepers at each end and middle.  Somewhere I have a proto piccy of just such an arrangement.

Also, (and this is really 'picky', but the scene quality deserves it), in the second picture of the 0414 post a tiny amount of green scatter forced here and there into the platform joint lines would make an unavoidable construction line into a micro-feature.

Thanks Doug, yes the tank will be replaced and for the platform joint lines, I do have some green weathering powder to try out.

I am currently doing scenic bits all over the layout, not just concentrating on one area at a time.

With my "desire" to have the new Charde Rail DMU stabled at Charde , not Tawnton, one of the crew suggested  a change 
from this




to this





so replacing the turnout serving the goods shed track & the platform run-around with a 3 way, it gives me a storage track for the DMU with the fuel tank.
& to line all things up, the turnout on the platform gets moved  to the left & that gives a longer track for a loco & more than 1- 2 vans in  run-around.

Waiting on delivery of the 3 way & a couple of microswitches for the 3 way frog switching needed for Code 75 .

This will take a lot longer to do than the 3rd track at Watchit so it maybe possible that Charde has no goods services for a session or two, only DMU's
( Charde will be more laid back     :mutley )

Wow - when I saw the first photo, I was about to say that looks nice - I like the sweeping curves running off the point when wham, bang, thank you Ma'am and it's gone !!

I can see why you've done it Sol and it does look good - as if it's been there since the goods shed was built rather than for a few hours.  On the other hand, I do wonder if the railway is taking the countryside over - I really like your scenery but is it slowly disappearing under sleepers .......................? :hmm

Just like the real thing Peter !   I'm just going to spend an hour updating the bad language filter. . . Just for when Ron starts posting about wiring in that threeway point !  :shock:

:mutley


Looks interesting Ron and the changes you have been making will certainly freshen up the operating sessions  :thumbs

Cheers

Matt

Matt, wiring the 3 way was easy as I followed a good photo from elsewhere as I had lost the Peco sheet.

Now to tidy things up.
