It was hende Nicholas's tail that was taught a lesson, Chris.  :laughabovepost:

Here's some detail of the Timecast mouldings which I used for the various gardens.

After getting the first one wrong by levelling plaster that was already set and having to disguise the edges, I set them into my earth mix (WS plaster, enough acrylic colours to match the colour of the allotment earth and water) while the plaster was wet.  With all of them I added highlights to the mouldings before "planting" them.

Tegfan garden from a cruel angle to show the edges - the bushes and tomato plants try to hide the edge of the moulding from the normal viewing angle.


Wstrws garden - set into plaster then static grassed.


Henllan railway terrace gardens - six of the mouldings and others made up from grass and scraps.


Perhaps the proof that there is intelligent life in outer space is that they haven't contacted us.

The Lampeter Road end of Aberayron has had some attention...


...and so has Hubbard's coal yard, though I should have spilled some coal on that amazingly clean ballast, shouldn't I?

Yet more really excellent scenic work. Many thanks for the update. A sprinkling of 'escaped' coal onto the ballast edge would be better, I agree.

Some shots of a Dukedog on an Aberystwyth to Carmarthen service while Dean Goods 2537 takes the morning coal train through Pencader.

A pannier shunts the yard at Henllan.  It looks as if the pigs are going to have to wait in the cattle dock until a truck can be found for them.  Why a brand-new wagon from South Yorkshire? My wife passed Maltby Main everyday on her way to school!


The shepherd from Wstrws shows he can handle a brace.  The presence of the lorry suggests he has heard of Henllan's lack of cattle trucks and has decided to send them to Ciliau Aeron market by road.


The cows look on as their milk is loaded onto the lorry collecting for the evening milk train.


The auto-coach led the way down the slopes to Aberayron to keep the boiler water over the firebox.  Some coal was spilled on the ballast, Chris!

Thank you for another set of excellent photos. of your lovely layout. The scenery is very good, the grassy areas and hedges are particularly fine. Very realistic. I take it that it is late Spring after plenty of rain? The added scattered coal does look more realistic. Good to see a 57xx pannier tank and a 48xx, too. A very relaxing place to visit.
