Your trees are very good, did you dry the twigs out before you "planted" them?

cheers John.

Coming along very well there, Well Done.

Must admit, saw the title and thought it said 'Hurts Moore', and thought that's a name for a layout... :P

Cheers, Timmo

Looking really good. Jealous of all that space you have! :envy:

I'm trying twig trees too. Not sure how long they may last but it's good to have a go.

Thanks for the update and please keep the pics coming.

Suitably impressed !. Like the others the trees may make me start scouring the countryside for sticks, may have to wrestle them of the dogs though.
Some days its just not worth gnawing through the straps.

I saw this layout yesterday. So jealous about the room you have. The viaduct looks as good as it does in the photos.

I have swapped parts from the class 66 bogie. It runs on the test bench but the wheels need a clean and I will update you when I test it on my layout tomorrow. Amd thanks for the ply wood.

Looks good del.

An alternative might be Magic Water which I used for my sea-side. It covered an area 1600 x 120 mm

I first applied it in Feb last year and there has been no fading, yellowing or shrinking. I can even put tools and stuff on it with out causing any indentations.

thanks for the comments
right got a little bored tonight waiting for the the ballest to dry so i thouht instead of buying the back sceane i will paint it myself just to see how it looks and give the canal abit of a foot path and greenery
oh i was going to have point motors and bought some fitted one and tested it would pull the point one way but would not rtn it so after many attempts i gave up removed it so now i will do it maualy as the points are all in reaching distance but the points wont go to waste as i have got the bug and plan to do a smaller layout that will be on runners that will slide out from under the main one but that wont be until this one is done any way anougth typing here are some pics of the back sceane and canal hope you like

little cottage by the canal is called hannahs cottage after my daughter




pic of the painted back sceane
