Now the final baseboard has been built, it's time to start thinking about how the Cider factory that will sit in front of the fiddle yard will look.

Research led me to http://www.cidermuseum.co.uk which focuses on the cider making practices in Herefordshire. A number of photos caught my eye and I'll be looking to accommodate features from all of them. They really are worth a look.

One problem I have is that apples are harvested in October, but Much Murkle is set in late summer and I would really like the challenge of modelling piles of apples.

I suppose modellers license would allow me to have an early harvest :???:

Hi Ron

The idea is to take some typical features and blend them together to give a generic representation and fit the site I have.

I'm thinking that the building with the enclosed hoist will go along the backscene in half relief with a chimney hiding the back scene joint in the corner. The end back scene will have another building with apple storage. The covered loading bay will run alongside one of the sidings with piles of barrels in various locations.

I want a busy scene to contrast with the sleepy nature of the terminus.

Nick,...the Early Murkle Cider Pippin...perhaps?

That would get your factory going ahead of the others.
