I think that little signal box sits very nicely on the platform where you have it.
It gets my vote.

My vote too. Now all you have to do is put some point rodding in. :D

My only comment regarding the signal box is that the windows on the front of the box would face the mainline.  So for me the first position (in reply #2431) works better if you like to view the signal box from the front.  Just my personal opinion of course.

The man is right methinks. It works better on the far platform - possibly it could move towards the footbridge where the platform is wider. However it does look nice on the near platform.

That wasn't very helpful  :-[

Hello again, greetings from Perthshire (well West of Shetland actually!).  Not been much progress on the layout the past few weeks due to a joint birthday trip to New York, changing job location and a long list of non-layout jobs to do.  Lots of new rolling stock has been arriving though, so will show some of that





After dropping off the small mixed goods, "Ivor" took control of a small fleet of tankers that were being transferred to the Refinery

Good to see some of the new class B tankers in there!

I like the vintage Bass wagons, too.  :beers:

Thanks for the update, Andrew. A very colourful selection of new goods rolling stock and a very nice single unit. I'm still waiting for my "ESSO" B tankers. 8-(

A bit of an EWS invasion in Perthshire now, the livery caught  my eye and I decided I quite like it ... always a dangerous thing for space & wallet!

more activity from the EWS fleet  with the PRPS Class 37 group in deep discussion with the owners of 37174 about it's future and whether it can join the ranks of the class 37's they have in their care already.







Continued a bit of work on the scenery at Muthill, building it up slowly while I work out how to do the lift out panel needed.  The clamp is holding the tunnel portal in place while the glue sets.

The EWS fleet looks very smart.  Apparantly, when they took over, they wanted to call it LMS, but the name was still registered, so they had to settle for EWS.
With kind regards
