Thanks very much everyone. I've left the layout out in our office and it's meant I have played with it more but, occasionally, done some work to it!

At the Great Electric Train Show, as well as the Tartan Arrow van, I bought some TP flowers. These are impressively detailed little plants that I hope will stand out more than bits of pink scatter.



Most of the primroses and some of the marigolds went into the garden and I think they've made it look a lot more interesting.





Most of what they bill as hydrangeas went elsewhere, as they are fairly generic. Some ended up by the roads-





Some went in the fields-



And the rest went by the track -





You'll notice that there's a new loco in these shots! The Class 67 Caledonian Sleeper was a Christmas present from my in laws and what kick started my modelling again.



Here it is, passing my other 67, waiting on a test train in the distillery siding.

Seconded. I'd never heard of this brand of model plants. I was planning to buy some of the German ones and have some Japanese flower bed strips.

Hi Luke,

Hadn't seen this layout before. Have just read from the start. Shame about the Photobucket (or lack of) thing.

Great new pics and lovely looking layout.

More please.

Cheers weave  :beers:
