No worries Andrew, I will get them cut on Sunday and post Monday so by the time you get ashore they will be waiting. There will be some 3d printed tarpaulin wagon loads too.

The main structure is now completed, and the positioning of the third support worked out well, straddling the juncture of the join between kits 2 & 3



While it will go unseen by most, I took the opportunity to create some bustle in the corridors.  I must confess, I thought I had lined up the roofs better on the footbridge, but can see the short 3rd section has sat down too low....  the power of the close up!



Here is the concept I was trying around the footpaths on the bridge, more of a cobble sett affair than concrete slabs ...

 :laughabovepost:   thanks Chris

Taking a break from one beast to another, I did a bit more work around the cattle dock, with some fences going in to prevent any bovine exploration onto the tracks



A cattle truck arrives on the scene to check the clearances



and now it is fixed down, and the rest of the fencing in place... just to try and locate a pack of laser cut 5 bar gates that I have somewhere and we will just about have a secure compound

And that is a BEAST of a cattle dock! Complete with beasts.

I love the wild wagons roaming in the hills.

Seriously though, this station is really coming together.

Ha ha, yes, I need to stop using the ridge as a dumping ground for rolling stock I move out of the yard!

Just about there with the footbridge now, though I am not so sure about having it disappear into thin air at the baseboard edge now, especially as an appealing alternative suggestion was made by a fellow forumite (you know who you are Chris!  :wave: )



The idea of using the perspex was to allow some interest to be added to the footbridge interior (maybe the posters was a bit extreme!)....... I think this can still be incorporated into a solid backscene quite easily.  I need to touch up those rough, cut edges.



I needed to build a small plinth for the third support, it just needs to be dressed up with some brick paper and weathered too, I think this would be pretty grimy, being so close to the loco's using the shed.



The footbridge disappearing into space looks even more bizarre in this view!



Balloonist, Austin Spindler took in the progress during one of his regular fly-by's



I still need to add the smoke detectors and have a go a weathering down the side walls a bit, but otherwise, I am happy with how this turned out and the fine folk of Auchterarder finally have access to their station platforms.  I can't decide if the smaller footridge at the south end needs to still be there?

A fine tin roof with real wooden floors below. One long staircase just going up and one even longer coming down, and one more leading nowhere, just for show. If I were a rich man.....

Perhaps you need a Boeing 737 on the end. That would make a nice talking-point for your layout.

Still looks fabulous though. This is going to be a superb station set piece. Hope I can get as good a feel on my layout!

My attempts at some high cobbled pavements emerge .....






Before I add more cattle to this scene, wanted to get a layer of flock stuck down



They look better than the P$D Marsh white metal ones, am happy with the width, maybe a bit high?  Probably didn't need the balsa wood base to be honest, but I have seen some pretty high pavements out there in the real world :)  Not sure why the vehicles are on the wrong side of the road though ... only explanation is that the tanker driver has pulled over to get a good view of the station from his cab, causing Bertie to have to pass him on the opposite side ... and it's safe to say the driver towing his American import Airstream is just plain lost



The plinth for the 3rd footbridge support is now wrapped in brick paper and has had a bit of weathering



Lastly, a long over-due job within the carriage and wagons department was to prepare this B set of coaches for the paint shop.  They are now on their way and a letter of profuse apologies sent to the the CLPG at Cant Cove (Sorry it took so long Chris!)
