Hi Everyone,

Many thanks again for the kind & inspirational comments, much appreciated  :thankyousign: :thumbsup:

Well as it's gone a bit cooler from that crazy heatwave, I've managed to have a bash at getting bits done to Shrewford. Mainly concentrating on the Red Star Parcels office & also the Railway bridge at the Chester end of the station. Instead of cutting through the board, as before, I've made an illusion as if the road dips to go under the railway, & putting a tin foil screen to create a mirror effect which was suggested by someone on the forum before..

Here are some pictures of the latest progress...


First a look at the new Red Star Parcels office to the right of the main station building




I think the canopy at the front of the main building needs a bit of a dusting lol!  :worried:


The I begin the screen for the Railway bridge








Now with the girders attached & how the Bridge looks from the street


& from the other side as an empty stock from London Euston departs platform 4





Still bits to do to completely finish off this area like adding street lamps & road signs...

 

Cheers for now  :beers:
Mark

That tinfoil thing is a very cunning plan!

Hi everyone,

Time for another update as the station progresses slowly.

I have now almost completed the retaining wall along the south end of the station & the white screen where the tracks supposedly span the river severn. This just needs finishing touches now. The next job will be ballasting before construction of the bay platform canopies & adding platform details.

This is the scene as of this evening..


First up, looking north showing the retaining wall on the left hand side of the station









Still loads to do..

Cheers for now  :beers:,
Mark

Great pics, Mark.
