More fences going in.  And a somewhat protective gander.

The post-and-wire fence is in. It still requires a bit of weathering and there’s more greenery to go down. A young lad waits to get a view of the railway action.  That action includes a newly-purchased trio of wagons from our friends in Camborne which have been loaded with Woodland Scenics “Medium Talus”. And a goodly helping of PVA!

Threading the wires through the post holes wasn't too bad.  A lot easier than with the barbed wire fence I attempted before which just wouldn't pull through.  The instructions are easy to follow.  Secure the posts with superglue before wiring.  Start threading with the bottom wire.  I found that using the phone's torch-light pointing directly at the holes helped me to locate the wires when the time came.  When threaded through secure the ends (at least) with a dab of superglue; you can also secure at any or all intermediate posts if you wish but take care not to allow glue to stray into the holes needed for the next wire!  

The wires pulled through all the way along a 1-metre run including around some slight curves without much of a problem.  Just ease them along and work any kinks or bends you get carefully through each post in turn.  There are some bends in my wires as the pictures show.  Despite them being a bit over-scale they don't bother me because fence wires are seldom taut and dead straight anyway.  They usually sag a little.

Hi Rick. Thank you for your advice, I have the free time all week ,but, at the time of writing I am awaiting my booster jab as well as the flu jab at home. I have made a wooden jig to solder a gate? I want to fit the Kadee couplers on the wagons and van and load the wagons with coal. Best wishes Kevin

A quiet weekend has allowed some modifications and progress to the street-to-station steps. 

An intermediate landing has been fitted, upon which a lady in blue is standing, to break the long flight which in turn necessitated changes to the brick abutments to incorporate a horizontal area

With that done cap stones have been fitted where needed. 

The steps themselves require painting then final detailing and fitting will see this piece become integral with the road bridge.

I'm liking this Rick, its adding multi layers of depth in a very narrow space and more and more detail to look at. Not sure if I've missed it as I'm playing catchup but is it card covered in brick paper ?? ( Ok, ok ill nip back and check  :) )
Cheers

Matt

After a long wait the final piece of backscene is finally going in. This is a test-fit. The idea is that it curves slightly behind the bridge to give depth rather than being a straight line stuck to it.

Hi Rick.  Splendid job you cannot keep a dedicated modeller down. My proverbial finger is well and truly stuck.I need a bit of encouragement, but, I must get that background scene sorted out before I put anything in front of it.
Best wishes Kevin

Looking great, Rick. You have achieved an awful lot in such a small space.

:cheers :doublethumb

You may know those base units supplied with Peco PL-11 surface point motors. They aren’t always needed and might be consigned to the recycling bin. 

But slice the ends off and you have handy little cable troughs ready-made with four-pin fixing which can be used to manage or conceal surface wiring where needed. 





Wires are visible through the backscene


And now covered. The cover could have gone right up to the motor but lacked purchase for the track pins on one side; as can be seen there is a baseboard joint and a slight gap there.

Ingenious recycling Rick.
 
Waddlemarsh has come a long way and its scenics and cameos bring it to life.
 
Best,

In other news the edge boards have been fitted most of the way around. There’s a gap where I still have to do some wiring. The lip is only 5mm above baseboard height so won’t affect viewing but will help to prevent clothes dragging on scenery and makes it harder for anything to fall off. It’s also shaped around the control area which will keep those bits from moving around.
