The diesel railcar looks very interesting, Maurits. May we have some close-up photos., please?

will do once it's finished  ;)

I'm interested in the stops. Are they plasticard?

They are scratch build, using evergreen strips, some left over plastic card and a red smd led.

evening one of my long term projects is getting to an end

As usual I design what i like to see on my computer ready for printing using my Cameo printer, I intend not to make something really 100 %, it needs to look a bit like the original , in this case it's based on Harlow train station.







This was a big print job, a couple of sheets so several hours, mainly because I have set the printer on the lowest speed.

as it's my amateur design it takes a while to build, and a while is over 20 hours so far



this is how it looks placed where it's going to be placed,



the pieces of paper are a mock up for the canopies.

[/url]

But before I start with the canopies I want this building completely finished, needs guttering, ladders, a GSM mast and weathering off course. ;)

Happy Saturday all,

Have had 2 air brush sessions this week to paints track/ ballast and another night for cleaning the tracks so was quit busy and a mesh. but did a good running session last night almost 1200 kilometers in a couple of hours without any major failures so pleased.

spend today on the first of four canopies, as mentioned station is build with Harlow in mind which I have adapted to my own liking.



3 more to go :)


best regards, Maurits

Hi Maurits,

Nice progress on the station scene!  And your technique for producing the station footbridge is really effective - thanks for posting.

Cheers

Ben A.

Happy Sunday all.

despite the snow here read playing outside with the kids I have managed to do a bit more. was looking at some pictures yesterday of Harlow station and decided that it would look better if I had on boh sides of the bridge canopies, and with number 1 finished it looks indeed much better.







so hopefully I can find some time to get the others done.

Evening all, last canopies finished and all connected, really pleased that I changed my original plan as this looks so much better.







tomorrow night will be a bit exciting as I haven't tested yet if there's enough clearance for all trains
