I think 'season' in general is forgotten lots of times, autumn and spring colors/flowers etc. mixed, the same for the clothing of our little N-folks.

Excellent thread, particularly as this sort of detail is exactly what I'm striving for and enjoy replicating :thumbsup:

point and signal wiring
relay cabinets


Yep.

TV aerials, ok for youse modern folks where its all digital and you can just glue a small circle to represent the Sat dish have done though?


Done both. TV aerials made from single strands of 7/0.2 wire, satellite dish made from tablet packaging and microstrip.

Catch pit covers,
AWS ramps


Got AWS ramps. What's a catch pit cover? ???

if it's urban with people and Summer - they should all be holding umbrellas.


Mine will be as I'm modelling wet weather, you have to make the umbrellas though as I've not found any in N gauge. Fiddly job ;)

Check rails on sharp curves? Before I did mine I'd never seen them modelled anywhere else?



EDIT: Just thought of another one - details on vehicles such as numberplates, wipers, mirrors, even lights if they don't come ready-painted? See plenty of layouts with monotone plastic vehicles just plonked on ;)

Agree speed restriction signs are not often seen, and for layouts old enough to carry them how about 'WHISTLE' signs?
Does anyone know of ready to plonk signs as above please?

Yeah... Hornby Dublo mate an excellent one circa 1963.... maybe it could be reproduced with 3D printing.... or maybe just photographed, reduced and stuck on the layout.

Nooo.....  :uneasy: ;D

Track that uses crossovers between two tracks but without long timbers or through bearers going across both tracks in the  area between the 2 crossings.
