Geominster was my first project which has now been dismantled.

Having learnt so much from Geominster this is the new project.

"Especially looking forward to seeing the Nelavator."


So am I, it will be a great feature and dispense with a lot of storage boxes also.

Due to a rather busy schedule very little progress has been made until yesterday when I finally managed to get the shaped platforms edged with stone paper and the surfaces completed with black mountboard and cut the vinyl tape for the platform edges. Fitted ten station lights to the Heritage Line platform and now just need to straighten the track alongside and also some of the lights need straightening and aligning. Wiring should be simply be placed into the groove cut in the platform base and connected back to the supply by just two wires.

Geominster wall plaque.


Proposed wall supporting high level road behind the Heritage Station.


MDF shaped platforms awaiting finishing


Platform wall and top surface, will weather any joins.


Platform ready to be wired and fitted, track aligned to platform edges, vinyl white self adhesive edging lines, the Mainline will also have the yellow safety lines fitted.


I now hope to get on and finish all three platforms and connect lights etc.

Thanks for the update, George. Your platforms look very good, particularly the surfacing and white lines. I really should do the same for mine at Cant Cove.

A little more progress the last couple of days as Geominster now has two Mainline and one Heritage Line complete with ten streetlights to each, I hope to connect them to the power tomorrow but having tested they all work and look great and just need plug in terminal blocks to illuminate! Photo tomorrow all being well taken in the dark of course.

As promised and especially for Maurits here are some shots of the platform lighting at Geominster.











Still some work to do aligning the lamp heads and platform furniture but now I have working light to see better :-)

Thanks Mick, sorry if the lights are a bit bright, I hope they didn't hurt your eyes. Good to hear from you again and I wish you a speedy recovery to your normal wit and charm. Not many follow my build so your comments are much appreciated. :)

Thanks for the update, George. You have done a superb job with both the platform lights and the platforms; the linings are really excellent, too. Already it is looking highly realistic. However, you've given me another reminder to get my landlord round to wire up my track and platform lights!
