Thanks for the comments, I will post more photos later today, my wife wants to go funiture shopping for the recreation room. Means less money for trains I guess. I am planning to post some photos of the trees and how I made them. The gas works is a Walthers Kit plus some scratch building. I have weathered it using roof brown and rust paint. Off course I had painted the gas holder a nice blue before I weathered it. The other associated tanks will stay black, with roof brown paint.

The other project is a neighbourhood of terrace houses.

The renovations of my house are over and I have had a bit more time to work on the layout.  I modified the industrial cameo a little, I moved a couple of buildings around and added a few more.  I also did some repainting of the roads. 

Most of the buildings I have been using are Walthers and I must say they look the part.

Once again, It's been a pleasure to catch up on Bickley Central's progress. Thanks for the updates.

Perhaps, when time permits, you could show one or two more detailed shots of the canal, with brief explainations.

I've got a canal to build on my layout, as well as one to detail / finish on the club's exhibition layout.

It looks great! Some fascinating and very realistic ground cover too. Lovely.

How I built the canal locks

I built the lock gates using some left over Wills engine shed doors. You can also use the wood planking that comes with most of the Wills builing kits.  I then faced these with horizontal bracing made from some left over plastic (again some left over plastic from a Wills kit usually used for gable ends).  I then used some more plastic to make the arm that allows the gate to open. to make the sluces I used the parts from the waterwheel kit from Slaters.  The railings were from the junk box.



 



 

The water was from woodland scenics (realistic water) I found it very easy to use and the results are A+.

Since I have changed the layout a bit I though I should show the whole layout.

This really is a super layout. Thank you for the notes on the canal. Until you explained I thought it was also commercial kits, that is a wonerful modelling job you have done. Have you posted a track plan of the revised layout, if not it would be great to see it.

Thanks for the update you have been extremely busy and you have done some cracking work

As many members have already commented your canal system is superb

Around the locks have you used static grass or is it some form of matting you have teased up and coloured

cheers Brian.W

From the pictures of the whole layout I can see that there are many more closeups you could do for us if you have the time. This forum is crazy for pictures (I am anyway). :lol: I have just got to put a couple of those shots on the front page side panels. Great.

William - great to see more of this splendid layout.

The canal is most impressive - "Bingley Five Rise" spring to mind. :roll: It's a real living scene you are creating there - as Bob said, photos, photos, photos - please, please, please !!!!  Then,  when you've posted more photos than you could imagine, you'll have to get your mind around to the "How I did it" bits !!:roll::lol::lol:

p.s. Don't plan a holiday !!:???:
