Signal box at Quarry Junction in place, also some more scenic bits & pieces put in place. Some scratchbuilt streetlamps added, I will wire these in along with all the building lighting at a later date.

In the corner of baseboard 2 there is a siding which will be part of a small permanent way yard.



That's all for now,

Cheers, Stu

Thank you Mick!

The ferns are made by Noch, they are N gauge ones, laser cut from some sort of paper I think. I think they look realistic though.

Thanks, Stu. For what is a common type of foliage in the UK you don't often see it modelled :hmmm:

Cheers, Mick. Yeah, spotted them for sale & thought they would look good around the waterfall & cliff areas amongst the other foilage. As you say they are not often modelled but in real life are always around water, woodlands & some cliffs/quarries.

Cheers, Stu

Some static grass & vegetation is now completed around the corrugated tin garages, under & on the two bridge embankments.

That is very effective and works really well.
I particularly like the overgrown bit between the two huts.
It's you railway so build it as you want and run whatever you like. The only rule is - ENJOY :
