The station building is now glazed and partially roofed.  The window etches are from Peedie Models in Orkney; they're not quite the right size but they're the closest I could find.



cheers
Shaun


You would have thought that being pretty local they could have sailed across to get em right :D

Lovely work as always

Chimney stacks added, roof tiled and a bit of painting done too.  I have used Redutex Slate Square Dark Grey for the tiles, I'm quite impressed with them, it's definitely one of their better textures suits this model perfectly.  Ridge flashing and down pipes will be added tomorrow night and hopefully it can be set in place for the layouts first proper running session which is scheduled to be held on Thursday.



cheers
Shaun

Very nice - I especially like the relief that you've got with the plasticard stone and tiles.

Today's inaugural running session went reasonably well with only a few minor track adjustments necessary off-scene.  Not really sure if it qualifies as an actual running session though as I spent most of the afternoon taking stock out of boxes, mostly for the first time - lot's of locos to run in over the coming weeks.
 
A few snaps below:


A few BG/GUV vans in the sidings at the Wick end, this is probably the only part of the layout that will get any natural light shining on it.


An overall shot of the station area.  I'm quite happy with the station building so far, still a bit of detailing and weathering to do before it's ready to fix in place and bed in.


26013 arriving from Inverness with a mixed goods.  The farmer appears to have abandoned his tractor and my thinking juice visible in the background.


The Wick end sidings again, this time from a different perspective.


My version of Georgemas has a pair of independent snowploughs based in it, one of them resides in the PW siding for most of the year.
 
That's all for now,
 
cheers
Shaun

Looks very nice indeed.
It's surprising how many model railway photos also include a bottle of something alcoholic ! :beers:

That's great, Shaun. I really like the 'openness' of the layout.

Hi Shaun,

Looks fantastic. Am always in awe of great modelling. I can drink a lot of San Miguel but that's about it at the moment. Am still trying though.

Looking forward to more.

Cheers weave  :beers:
