Looking good, I like the allotment especially.  I wouldn't worry about the wonky garden fences - I lived for a while in a 1980s built house with wood panel garden fencing, and it looked exactly like that, at least until half of it blew over in a storm.

Ive just made a list of things to do for the layout before the first showing of Northallerton on August 6th/7th.

That list has 45 jobs on it!

I think Ive got 12 full days, and the odd evening to try and get through most of this. Starting in about 20 minutes time...

Photos to follow hopefully.

Cheers
Kirky

The backscene arrived from the printers yesterday.

I would like to wholeheartedly recommend Art-printers.com.

The service is unbelievably good. Fast, great communication and excellent prints. And the chap who runs it, John, is just so helpful. I cannot praise him enough.
I would normally expect to pay for a service like that, but John offers completely reasonable prices.

Usual disclaimer applies.

Cheers

More to follow tomorrow.

Thanks for the update, Kirky. Adding a backscene always improves the look of a layout and a plain sky one can be, as on yours, a good choice. I agree that adding trees and bushes though will help disguise the division between land and sky. I really like your ballasted concrete sleepered track and aim to achive similar results but with different coloured ballast. Did you use anything under the ballast to raise the surface to normal sleeper height? I'm thinking of using thin strips of balsa wood as used by another NGF member. I see that waiting for a train has proved too much for the passenger on the platform though! 8-)

And I've  persuaded me brother to do some painting of the woodwork. Nice black woodwork now.

I may be wrong, but I don't think you will get away with the drawing pins holding your fence up. Somebody will spot them. 😃
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

My N gauge Ringo Starr has already been asking who nicked the cymbals from his drum kit :laugh:

I thought they were tables for a very long, thin beer garden.
