Top marks for creating your own catenary but the proximity of the uprights to the unelectrified running lines scares me :worried:

@Chris in Prague

Yep, I checked today and it's definitely Deluxe Materials Solid Water.

Cheers

Thanks, Kirky. I had not realised that there were so many possibilities to model water.

A few more pictures to share.
Alan came over today with the dairy. Although its not quite finished I think the photos give the idea of what is intended.













The HST in Virgin livery is one of Alan's repaints. Its a Dapol HST. Very nice job too.

Cheers

The dairy is super, smashing, modern, unlike all those run down places I used to go to as a Sales Manager.

Thanks for these photos. The modern dairy is highly impressive; excellent work. The HST relivery is a superb job, too.

I think in reality it must have been run down cos they knocked it down in 2012!

Theyre building houses on that site now!

I had a day off from building the layout yesterday, but managed to get an early start this morning. Three of us have been working on the layout today.
The catenary went in. Most of these views show off the catenary. They are carefully selected to show off the dodgy way theyve gone in. I think I must have been born with wonky eyes. When they went in they were straight - honest...











These ones really show the fore shortening that happens in some photos. This is actually about fifteen feet long.


And this one is nigh on 20 feet


The houses have had new front doors.




A new - old fence for the scrap yard.


Someones nicked the dairy!


A couple more days toil and then its testing time.  :D

Looks brilliant. I'm very impressed.
That catenary would be a nightmare for me, I'm ham fisted, I'd have it down in seconds if there was a problem with a train  :D

And the scrap yard has filled up! I wonder whether we can come to a conclusion, readers :hmmm:
