Not sure if elf 'n' safety allows you to work on your own so I suggest you rope in Jack Daniels or Jim Beam as helpers :smiley-laughing: :thumbsup:

Hello all thought its about time I brought things up to date as I started this thread so here goes layout at a standstill now doing a bit of modelling working on the cenotaph coaling tower and ash plant to match then the engine shed area can be sorted and last bit of track in that area can be laid
bye for now

I've been uncharacteristically patient with this one and waited for the backscene to be finished before starting on the rest of it.  Its one of the main lessons learned over the years that starting at the front tends to result in elbow shaped dimples in the ballast and plaster/paint blobs where they shouldn't be.  Just drying out a bowl of wet sand now to mix with earth paint and give it some texture which I haven't done before but am hoping it will help smooth over some of the little holes in the plaster cloth.

One way:




t'other way:




Also, less interestingly, have sprayed the track on the new storage yard bypass line so I can finish off the scenery here and ballast it.




For the stock lovers, a shot of the same bit of track from a few days ago before it was painted with a new delivery of loco and wagons after the Mercig treatment.  Its a bit grainy as I have to shoot at ISO 3200 at the back of the room there.  Must get a tripod - are you listening Santa?

Very good, and I like the shot of the rolling stock. :thumbsup:

Hope Santa brings you that tripod you want ;)

Nobby, the inclined track is laid on Woodlands Scenics risers and either side of that its just old copies of the Telegraph scrunched up and covered with masking tape to get the desired shape.  Then the plaster cloth is layed over that.  I have an awful habit when making a layout of laying the track and doing the electrics then umming and ahing for weeks/months while having little running sessions before getting on with the scenics.  Now that I've started that area it should come on quicker.

One benefit of taking pics is noticing which of your trees need de-wonkying.
