I never thought of using a cassette. I'm going to use this on the right hand side under the tunnel. I could easily and easier swap rolling stock and locomotives  :beers:

There is a lot of good advice about cassettes (from U-shaped plastic PC cable troughs) on the forum and, eventually, I will have to make some for Cant Cove.

I like the pub going next to the canal. Maybe the Lock Keeper's Arms?
And how about said lock keeper's cottage?
If material is going to transfer from canal to railway and vice versa you may think about a small storage/transfer warehouse?
It's you railway so build it as you want and run whatever you like. The only rule is - ENJOY :

Now that sounds a good idea with the warehouse to separate the two methods of freight, Just need to figure out how to execute this but I'm getting a better idea the more suggestions  :beers:

Currently, Use the single tunnel at the top so I can have my little street scene overlooking both sections. Remove one of the sidings from my previous post's for the Canal & Warehouse which will be small as only a volunteer run Canal Warehouse ( My reason for being around in to the 80's aka Rule 1 )

Seems it's coming together, I have my work table back so building will commence on the street tonight :)

I'd suggest a warehouse with sliding doors either side to allow freight in/out on both sides. Perhaps also with a small platform on the railway side?

That's my plan sorted thank you :beers:

Think this will look awesome and add something else to the overall look of the layout. Time to get cracking. Looking for a suitable warehouse now. Preferably Metcalfe to keep the building's in a similar style the the rest of the layout :)

Finally had some space to start the final two houses for my end of street part of the layout. I was doing these at 1am the houses didn't get curtains totally gutted I forgot these yet again, I had the all glued to a little piece of carboard ready to go on  :sorrysign:

Chimney pots are ready to go on but to tired to focus this evening to continue. The picnic tables have arrived and ready to go outside the pub. I'm going to add a few 'street' style items like a bicycles, Guttering & people and lighting etc to give it a bit of character  :beers:

Here's the photo. Can't wait for the new track to arrive so I can plan better on the lid.



Also a new addition to the fleet a Class 57 57011 DRS Livery. Listed as spares or repair but I think a good clean may get it working so I guess I have to check when it arrives :laugh:

The pub looks excellent. You're making very good progress. I hope you can get the 57/0 working.

Thank you, I'll post up photo's of the gearing I have a feeling its just not been cleaned or maintained properly but we'll see. Appreciate the kind comments  :beers:

Think I'll add a few more details like a chalk board outside showing available ales and a swinging sign hanging off the wall lol
