Hello Shaun,
Good to see an update, it doesn't seem like such a long time. Time seems to fly by! The lattice work on the overbridge is fantastically crisp too for such a small model. Also the flower beds look really realistic. All in all excellent small scale modelling,
Cheers,
Paul

 :greatpicturessign: It would be intersting to see how your layout matches up with the OO version of the same name that is currently on the exhibition circuit.

It's been quite some time since my last update, although work has been progressing at my usual slow pace.

Some pics from last night.  The station building is finally fixed in place - only about three years since I started it.  It's not quite bedded in fully yet but is coming along.  Some bits and pieces starting to appear on the platforms now too.








Quite fitting for the current weather, although no snow here at Georgemas so must have just been a test run.  A pair of grubby 26s running through from Thurso to Wick with independent ploughs.







Cheers

Lovely.
Thanks for the update
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Many thanks, Shaun, for another excellent set of photos. of a highly realistic layout (scenery and rolling stock). Well worth waiting for.

Very nice photos of a very good layout, Shaun. Your third picture particularly looked like it could have been a photo of a real scene.

Just read through your thread. Very interesting and very good modelling. Can I ask you where you sourced the footbridge and chimney pots.
Cheers

Thanks Neil, the footbridge is from Lochgorm Kits.  It's fiddly to put together, but really looks the part.  The chimney pots are from Langley ref. A90

I agree  footbridge fiddly but well thought out, I got mine at the Telford O gauge  meet a few years ago and jokingly "sumggled" it out.  However York lazer do a Romark plastic laser cut version that will span 4 tracks  but easily cut down.... mine resides on office layout and often gets commented upon so that might give an easier build.

Not much activity over the last week or so, I've been away with work a lot recently.

I did manage to get some pics in daylight hours for once.  Although the room the railway is in is north facing it does get some decent light for a few hours during the day.

A couple of engineers vans in the sidings awaiting their next tour or duty. 


As the layout has to be stored from time to time, I didn't really want a normal type back-scene as I felt it would need to get handled too much and be susceptible to damage.  Plus the layout sits diagonally across the room and can be photographed from all sides.  Instead I'm hoping to go for a digital version and although this one is not quite right for the area it should give an idea of what I'm planning.


cheers
Shaun
