Hello chaps.
Thx for all the birthday wishes.
I had a great day, weather turned out gorgeous. Didn't get any time in the shed as certain guests couldn't pull themselves away from the BBQ till quite late.
Loads of goodies left over that I intend enjoying today :beers:

Belated happy birthday Marcus (I agree with NNs comment about youngster).

I've been following your thread most of this year. Excellent modelling, very inspiring and I will be stealing lots of ideas and techniques!

 :hellosign: getting to my busiest time of year business wise so I haven't been able to spend as much time in the shed as I would have liked. I managed to carry out a little more work on the station area, the surrounding landscape will eventually come up to the level of car park, as suggested by other members as not to make the countryside flat in appearance. I found the station area more difficult than I had anticipated, having changed it several times. I looked at a few examples and modelled my own with a few changes. Overall I'm ok with it, not as flash as some stunning examples I've looked at, but passable upon my modelling skills. My station lights I ordered from good old China haven't arrived yet but once they do, I'll put up a photo showing how they look at night. Hoping to find time for a little more building this week, I'd like to put in place the road from the upper level down to the station, but we'll have to see. :wave:

Just read through the whole thread. From that initial start in the conservatory to what you have now, simply fantastic. You certainly have an eye for detail and creating lovely little cameo scenes.
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Thank you for your compliment. I've really enjoyed the build, made a few mistakes along the way, but then that's how you learn. I hope you continue to follow and glad you enjoyed reading the thread. :thankyousign:

 :hellosign: just a little update on Marcroft station. I have yet to wire up platform lights, added a few passengers and burts hot dogs are selling well. Started to try and blend station into what will be countryside, as I would like to keep this part of layout minimal, industry wise. The one thing missing is trees, I need lots more trees. All in all, happy with things so far, but still a long, long way to go. :beers:
