Thanks, Chris. I agree the goods yard surface is now looking very good, indeed. Good to see that the LMS livery cattle van has safely arrived from Cant Cove, via Hood-dale.

This is the latest installment on my goods yard, it has been hard work. I think now it beginning to look ok,I have now doubt you will all let me know what you think. In the foreground of the pic, bottom right, you can see were I have broken the water tower off, this was the second time so I decided to leave it till I have finished messing with the surface then glue it back. You can see the difference in texture in some places where there are still some of the old cinders, they definitely looked too coarse. In some places where I have the engine shed etc, I have poured some of the pledge over the top and then used the pallet knife to smooth some weathering powders into it,I think this should improve that area, I will see when it dries. I also tried some of the Woodland scenics earth scatter which is a different colour and darker, but it does not work the same has the Treemendus earth scatter. There is no comparison the Treemendus scatter is so fine, pity it is not a darker colour.
