Thanks Rod, this is what it looks like with the outer doors closed over - should get it painted BR Bauxite by the end of June :)

Looks great with those inner doors.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Thanks Martin, I just need to finish it off with a bit of black lining to hide my dodgy straight lines :)

Added the passing loop point and the down mainline point



Track for the final 2 sidings at Muthill has dried and is ready to be trimmed, there will be a more modern style engine shed/workshop sited here



27203 brings the trial run of the Societies preserved Edinburgh/Glasgow push-pull set back to Muthill for storage & repairs, it is in the process of being prepared for an enthusiast's special later in the summer, it is hoped that the FK coach will arrive in time for this!



Walls assembled and offered up for final positioning & checking of the shed's footprint before making any cuts to the track.  This is a Greenmax industrial complex kit that I am cherry picking bits out of

 

First survey of the mainline track through Auchterarder Station - trying to keep the curves as gentle as possible to keep the platform gaps down, but also pronounced as possible to make them interesting

Coming along very well, Andrew. How much more trackwork do you still have to do? I wonder if you will have sufficient storage space for all your rolling stock?

I look forward to seeing the complete preserved Edinburgh / Glasgow push-pull set running later this summer.

Thanks Chris, I  have all the mainline still to go, it is a kidney shaped circuit, but needs to climb to get over one of the branch lines that comes out of Fiddle Yard 2 (beside the Refinery).  At the bottom of the last picture is where the climb begins. Each line is about an 8m run - there is also the 2 lines to complete out of fiddle yard 2, they are the ones crossing the gorge on the girder bridges - one is a connection to the down mainline, about 2.5m, the other is a more meandering branch line that is about 5m long and it connects to the branch line at the distillery - So yes, quite a bit of tracklaying still to go! - there are a lot of levels to be set correctly too.  Just as well it is a long term project :)

As for storage.... there was an earlier reference to needing a restored WW2 aircraft hangar which was not too far from the truth!  It is getting very congested, I have 2 large boxes filled with rolling stock that have not yet had a run (oil trains, salt trains, milk trains, conflat trains) - still, it is a nice problem to have!  I also know I need to thin down and have a growing pile of items I need to get listed on ebay.

View of maintenance Shed 2 from the ground



A view of the deserted PRPS yard & storage roads



Turned my attention to the area behind maintenance shed 1, decisions are still to be made about what will be on the hill behind



Track ends tidied up and a bit of sculpting done



Mainline laying commences through Auchterarder  :claphappy: :beers:

Looking great Andrew, like the ends track from the shed. On the top maybe a small farm or stables.   :thumbsup:

Thanks Rod, good ideas, other options are more golf course, just rough ground, old ruin, a road (I have lots of cars & vehicles to use) ... the options are only limited by our imagination, one of the great aspects of our noble hobby :)
