In case anyone is interested,these are the watercour pencils I use on the edges of the buildings. They are so easy to use, keep them sharp and run the point down the edge carefully, wetting the tip helps. If you slip up its no problem, it comes off with a bit of the wet stuff (spit) out of your mouth. Burnt humber matches the brickwork pretty good.

Well I have done more work on the buildings,the intention is to finish the viaduct section. There is just space in front of the viaduct at the moment, no idea what I am going to do.I will just play around with the buildings and see what fits, the chimney is a must and some sort of access road coming from under one of the arches. I have been to my favorite model shop today seeking advice about the goods yard signalling, plus I needed some sharp blades for my Swann Morton craft knifes.

I also found out the Manchester show is on this weekend 20/21st May at the Transport Museum Manchester. Its usually not a bad show plus you can look around the museum too at the old buses etc.

The buildings are coming along nicely, I have modified one building which has the chimney. I have made a piece up to fit on the roof out of bits of wood to fit the chimney onto. This enables the chimney to be removed, I will post pics later to show how this has been done, hopefully it will stop it getting damaged.

I have completed the Metcalfe Buildings,boiler house and engine shed and chimney. I have made the chimney removable to avoid accidents when working in the area, simply a block of wood, the chimney is a snug fit.

The plan is for the buildings to go here, something like this, it should create some scenic interest. I want the trains going through the scenery look.

An ingenious solution to an erectile problem. The factory  looks good in front of the viaduct. :thumbsup:
