Bit warm again in the railway room but hell to it....for crying out loud I have cleaned the track. Any way yesterday I bought some more little people to place on the station, these are sitting people this time and expensive little b*****s too, made by Modelpower. I plan to glue these onto the seats on the platforms. I might fix some figures on the platforms with tack wax but I am wondering how that will work out with the heat in here 85f/30c aprox at the moment. My Deltic is running round with no problems at all.....

I think well-painted 'Little People', like those above, are worth paying for to add life to a layout, Chris. It's very good to see all the progress you've made in recent months on the scenic side. I agree that the tall signalbox is a great feature. With autumn coming, you should have much cooler temperatures to look forward to, soon.

Well I have made a start on the station platforms ie fitting some people and trollys and luggage etc. I found my glue had seized up again, its lucky I have just put new strings on my guitar. The end of one of the brass strings is just the correct size for clearing the fine tube nozzle.

Just picking up on this thread again Chris.
That ladt batch of photos look really good.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Thanks Martin, more pics we now have the platforms with the people and the trollys and luggage. Some of the people are glued in position some have been placed with tacky wax. One guy kept falling over so the re-railer is holding him upright. The canopies have been removed for access, I will wait and see how the seats are before trying to glue some sitting people. I have used pva glue for the people and the luggage and seats etc, I will see how that dries before trying to glue the sitting folk. I have a feeling some of the seats may be loose in which case I may glue people onto the seats before re gluing them in place.

I have had some fun tonight playing trains, everything seems to be running ok. Only problem I placed the canopys back on the platforms and some of the support posts fouled on a couple of the seats I fixed in place. I should have paid more attention when placing them on the platforms, easily sorted though re glued with pva no damage done.
