It's a great kit Dave but as you say, it takes some time to build !!!

Maxmill has a small one and others are planned for the industrial area so, of all his kits, this one is going to earn it's keep !!! :thumbs

I see yours is stone - it looks good.  Is the name board from the kit ?

Thanks Pete,

Glad you like the stone  - I thought the stone look was more "west country " than the brick.  The name board is as supplied.  I toyed with the idea of making my own - which I could do at some time in the future I guess,  but for now I just wanted to get it finished !!

Now that is looking good Dave, very nice. The warehouse stonework matches quite well with the reatining wall/arches. :thumbs I take it that the Pannier and vans are just in storage and no tracks exist there ?? Only reason I ask, is that I think a line running into an entrance on the side wall would look great.

Cheers, Gary.

Thanks Gary,

There are two sidings and the pannier is on one of them ,  they run parrallel to the wall. I did consider  running a track into the building but decided against it in the end - but the beauty of Scalescenes is that I can always print off more building material and have another go later on.

 A wet weekend in Sydney so a good excuse to get up into the train room and work on the replacement canopy for the island platform

I resurrected a canopy from NotNorth Road and after some repair and a repaint to fit in with a BR/GWR scheme.
Refitted the lights here we are : 

The canopy does not hit the arch walls so that objective has been met and all the lights have been adjusted to give a lower intensity.  They are all operated via the computer or the DCC command controller.

A successful few hours ( OK many hours) spent on the layout this weekend working to get the station area actually looking like an attempt to replicate a railway.  The main platform and buildings ( Metcalfe kits) with external and internal lighting were put into place and lamps and LEDs wired to the stationary decoders.  I still have some fine tuning to do with the lights ( the eagle eyed amongst you will note that the additional lamp on the island platform working intermittently ( for reasons yet unknown).



The recently built  warehouse can be seen in the background - although from this angle the lighting gives more an impression of a fire on the ground floor:oops: -  more adjusting to attend to ....

The commuters of NotMutley,  especially those stranded on platforms 2 & 3, where suddenly provided with an escape route in the form of a footbridge courtesy of Scalescenes and Handfrom the Sky Constructions.

A spokesman for the construction company advised commuters that in the very near future they would also be provided with a Newspaper Kiosk and a gents toilet. !


The Kiosk is under construction  -  and is already stocked with newspapers and magazines together with a very willing newspaper man who appears to have lost both his eyebrows and his eyes. 


The Scalescenes kit is easy to construct and takes about half an hour to put together. The photo below is a birds eye view before the roof goes into place ( after some lighting has been installed.)

yes they  do Alan.  I only used about 20% of the total - there is a whole sheet that can be cut up and used - effectively you make each newspaper individually and then glue them any way you want.  In the birds eye view you can see how I have made some into bundles as well as those on the counter - there are three different newspapers .

Following suggestions from those that are following my ramblings etc I have modified the warehouse so that a railway line now runs into it - I have also extended and added another siding :-

From this


to this:-


Still plenty more ballasting and scene work to do ( including fixing the gate).

Outside the warehouse looks a bit barren to my eye - any ideas /suggestions?

Hi Dave,

The rail entrance looks good, well done. :thumbs I like the fencing that runs around the factory as well, but those gates need to be painted white with a big red cross on them.

I agree with Owen, some packaging crates, pallets or a trailer of some sort would look good. Perhaps you could also include a piece of retired machinery, rusting under tarps outside as well. Don't forget the oil drums as heavy machinery requires a lot of that black gold !

Cheers, Gary.

This really does look the business! The timing is impeccable. I am planning on using this kit (in the same stone, too, I think) in the corner of Pig Hill, and I was trying to work out whether the openings would accommodate a siding. I had assumed they would, so this has confirmed.  Perhaps I'll use a different finish. I hope I can get it looking half as good as yours! :)

Thanks for the feedback.

Mike - the scalescenes warehouse jst requires a lot of patience - be prepared for lots of pasting and cutting and you'll end up a modle that will be as good if not better than mine.

Thanks for your kind comments.
Its been a while since I last posted mainly 'cause I have not being doing much with the layout!

This weekend I decided it was about time to do some more but quickly became distracted and ended up just playing trains.
But how come this nearly always ends up finding a problem with a particular loco or wagon that insists on derailing !!

In this case I found a section of track where the track level varied just slightly at the join - not a problem for 99.9% of the rolling stock but just one carriage out of 5 similar carriages insisted on derailing. After fiddling with the track the carriage ran fine for about 2 circuits of the layout before derailing again... I was then suckered into trying to find the problem with the carriage - the rest of the rolling stock, under the control of RailRoad & Co Train Controller, was performing perfectly.
I checked back to back measurements , swapped bogies, etc etc until after over an hour I gave up and put it on the list of things to do when I run out of more important things to do.

Just a quick post as it has been almost 6 months since my last regarding progress on the layout.
The ssad news is that rather than progress I have gone backwards in that all the scenery on the top station level had to be removed for access to the manhole as I have had solar panels installed so that I can run the airconditioning for "free"  ( I am finding that as I get older I am less tolerant to the heat - that I used to enjoy when I was younger)

So for the record her is a picture of the station area in its current state  :sad:

Note the manhole and the specially made support which will be removed soon !! 

- for those of you not familiar with Notmutley this video ( made for a bit of fun)  will give you a good idea of what had to be removed .   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHHl1Pas4s0&list=UUaoPkss2oCj1kXLRXG-ZIcg
