I agree that the pavements are a bit high Andrew but is it the camera?
Do they look ok to the naked eye perhaps?
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Hi Martin, the camera is accentuating it a liitle bit ... but think they may be still in the too high bracket ... I head home tomrrow, so will see what I think after a break of 3 weeks ....

Put some static grass down on the slopes above the yard



Added another metal strip to the pelmet to allow my newest totem to be visible



The thing that dictated the colour scheme of the footbridge was my intention to re-use some canopies from a previous layout, they were already painted in cream & maroon, so that was that, though it reflects the LMS heritage of my Auchterarder (aka Gleneagles or better still Crieff Junction) more faithfully than my preferred green & cream.



I don't think I am going to get away with leaving them like they are..... there will need to be some re-work (and quite a lot or repairs!) to give them a bit of a curve to match the platforms.... I have ordered another kit to help with that.






Finally for just now, hoovered up the excess static and planted a few more cows in the cattle dock area - I will add some bushy scrub to the hillside too, try and break it up a bit.

Dock is looking very busy  :thumbsup:

Yes, the canopies will need some bend to blend with the platform curve. Thatíll be fun!  :uneasy:

Thank you, it has been a good journey, my knowledge has grown considerably (and my wallet diminished in direct inverse proportion!) as it has progressed...  thanks in no short measure to the help & support of the forum and all the other great layouts on here.

Thanks too Keith, I think I have an idea about how to "curve" the canopies... but fear it will involve sacrificing some of that has already been built..... wish me well!

Morning fellow forumers, greetings from Perthshire once more!  Has been a busy few weeks, but I have some updates to bring to you over the coming 3 weeks, including some videos.  Will take me a day or two to get them all organised and re-sized, but just wanted to take a moment to say a quick hello again and hope that everyone is well and that preparations for Christmas are going well (especially that bit where you pick out a tasty present to yourself .... I just did mine on the Dapol website, where a couple of the Grange's are 50% off)

 :beers:

Looking forward to the resumption of your updates Andrew.

That footbridge looks amazing and the cattle dock is... well, almost perfect.

Can I just plant this idea here....




Generally speaking, cattle docks on layouts always appear too clean.
