A slight alteration to the fencing.
I forgot about the hoarding that sits on that part of the platform.
We decided the poppy advert helps define the Autumn time of year. Any comments appreciated.

Looks very good, Kirky.
Seems to be something strange still in the Media section as the pic in your previous post is no longer available to see. Just says 'Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery'
@Only Me

Sorry Both - just seen the discussions about 'old' pics in the 'Posting Images......' thread so ignore that last bit

Hi Mick
I guess that's something to do with tank and Paul removing the old media software?? The picture above was uploaded with the new gallery system. It's taken me five years to get used to the media button, and then they go and change it - typical - tut.

Thanks tho.

Just occurred to me that I may not have posted pictures of my very simple phone mast.
Simply used a Veissmann catenary post and stuck on bits of plasticard.



and the finished thing looks like this (not a great photo I'm afraid)

A little update.
The deadline is fast approaching and although there will undoubtedly be a massive surge in activity in the last couple of weeks, we are continuing to make progress.

Firstly, we just wanted to add some modernism to the allotments, so we've added blue barrels, probably used as water butts but they can often be seen on modern day allotments

and


We've had a little go at doing a platform sign, and there are plenty to do - modern stations are littered with signage.



And at the north end of the layout we had a little triangle of space to fill in. In real Northallerton this area is occupied by some housing but its orientation is turned by 90 degrees and of course due to our compromise in width the real space is much longer.Needlesstosay, we are pleased with the results so far. The trees will be planted once theyve been autumnised.


And finally again a much foreshortened building. The railway building in the pictures has been made using the photoshop technique, but only shows a portion of the real building. It is currently used a network rail storage building. Last time I paid a site visit, there were redundant signals piled up in the yard.

and

Still some work to do, but hopefully you can see what we are trying achieve.

The inaugral exhibition is on 6th and 7th August at our own exhibition in Redcar. This year is a special as it is a north eastern themed exhibition with I think six n gauge layouts.
Cheers

Very nice, Kirky.
The pics of the allotments with the 'autumnised' colours are great :thumbsup:

Cheers Mick. Im really pleased with the allotment, not bad when you think I left it to a couple of dublo modellers!

Very nice indeed. I'm sure you've told us, but I've been to bed since then, but are the trees hand made? They look superb.

Actually Bruce, you are right. I don't think I've mentioned the trees at all. Yes they are hand built by Tony, another dublo modeller who had his arm twisted into smaller scale modelling.
They are wire and plaster. Wire rope untwisted and then plastered. And I believe he used wig hair for the foliage.
We really like them and I'm tempted to have a go meself one day.

Cheers
