The only thing missing is some people, which I have a plan for.

I think I've got this right, years since I took my yachtmasters but the after mast light would normally only show one of those two lights at a time, the lower one would be forward facing only (225 degree arc) and higher than the forward mast light (also 225 arc) to show which way the vessel is steaming when seen side on.  The second light on the after mast would be an all around light only lit when the vessel was as anchor.  There would also be two all around red lights on the after mast which would be lit when the vessel was not under command.

Two red lights separated by white could also mean "I have restricted maneuverability", means a whole heap of things.  Pretty sure we used to display it offshore on the boat when we were on station and divers were down.  It can also be shown as two diamonds separated by a circle when hoisted up the mast in daylight -but don't quote me on that as it's from memory and can't find it on-line to check.  Nav lights are quite an interesting subject, I think equally as many permutations as signalling but a bit easier codes to follow.

....Nevermind and no point in rivet counting, looks pretty darn good to me :thumbsup:

Indeed, it does mean many things but all of them say to other ship, 'stand clear'...  The day shape version is two circles with a diamond between by the way.  We used to show that same combination on the survey ships while towing sensors, often many kilometers behind the vessel.  I well remember working across the Red Sea just below the controlled area of the Suez Canal, right where the faster vessels try to get ahead of the others.  They couldn't get out of our way if they wanted to.  Only lost a cable once though.  Lots of perspiration but only the one cable!

I don't miss those days at all!

Oddly enough I do sort of work in that sort of industry. I design cable protection for seismic survey vessels. Some of their arrays are 10km long and 1.5km wide!

Either way thanks for the further info about correct marking.

Thinking ahead I'm getting a little 'bogged down' with how to progress next. I know I need to do the dock wall and concrete dock area (including the 3 sidings), but should I be doing any other scenic work or ballasting, etc first?

So, I've had another go at a video, enjoy:



Jennings Quay June 2015 update

I've attempted to try the 'update' style, a bit like Everard Junction:

and Glebe Road Junction:

For a first try, it is informative and you get your ideas over very well  :NGaugersRule:

I would not throw that piece of flexi track out as you can use it as old rails lying alongside your track and if you cut the sleepers up you could stack them or use them on flat wagons  ;)

cheers John.

By the way if you're viewing on a mobile and the videos say no longer available, ignore it and click anyway as they are working!

Today I finished the scalescenes free small goods store and had a play with the photo editor on my phone

Thanks everyone, bought the medium station and platform kit from scalescenes yesterday, along with ordering the windows from brassmasters. So that along with the dock edge kit and low relief factory (the small free one), is going to keep me busy for some time!
