I managed to spend some time today on scenics.

Trees, hedges and some fencing built and populated with some cows as well.









Quite pleased with results on what was previously a dead corner of the layout board.
Geominster was my first project which has now been dismantled.

Having learnt so much from Geominster this is the new project.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

An alternative could have been a cemetery but your pastoral scene works well.

No cemetary at Geominster Mick, maybe a wedding or christening at the front of the church when I get around to locating it :-)

A mixed effort this weekend, I managed to fit some more fencing trackside and put some of the roads into the Heritage Line cottages, but then while putting the fencing to the cottage rear gardens I managed while digging the fence posts with my awl to go through the grass and straight into the point motor concealed under it and broke the point. Typically after 5.00. pm Saturday so I had to wait until yesterday to check local shop for a replacement and then wait until today to collect it. Not the simplest of jobs replacing the point and fixing into position and wiring the motor again but all done now and working again. While shopping yesterday the answer to one of my next problems was solved by finding some square headed pins to permit straight fitting of the concrete fence around the Heritage Line which is of course constructed from cardboard.

Anyway a few shots of progress, not greatest pictures due to lack of light but will give the idea where it has all got to.































Also managed to create a DCC running number list and attach to the layout facia by the control panel.





I hope to progress further in the near future.

Coming along nicely George. You mention your local shop, I'd be interested to know what shop you use in your area?

Well Bob, local to me is about 4 miles to Berkshire Dolls House which surprisingly considering the name stocks quite a lot of N Gauge, Peco Farish etc, cannot make any progress on the website but they are open 7 days a week and very helpful when I rang to see if they had a Peco SL-388 point which to be honest I did not expect them to have one but actually they had two so saved me a wait for Postie and I was able to carry on without delay. Give them a call.

Is that the one in Twyford? Never been in there. Have driven past it a few times but found it difficult to park.

Yes Bob that is it, opposite the shop leading to Waitrose there are a few places on the street, the car park if you just stay out of private spaces opposite bowling green, if that fails just a few yards after that going from traffic lights there is a road and you can park up there, but if a walk but ok if not raining. Must been lucky today found space in the road!

Yes Mick, Nelevator is still doing the job it was bought for, storing stock and displaying it and most importantly allowing access without needing another room for a fiddle yard.

Latest arrival at Geominster, another Dapol Schools this time Repton. I never thought I would say this but I really do like the Schools series, in the flesh they look far better than the catalogue pictures. Repton is by far the best runner, very smooth and almost silent running straight out of the box. I have been having a bit of a cull of surplus stock allowing purchases of new models. I will do a photo call later of the additions.




I am currently working on some scenery in the yard of the Heritage Line, first time for me doing scenery but I am happy with the overall effect. I enjoy making the fencing from cardboard and now I have found some square head pins to hold it in place when drying the task has got very easy. I will try and get some more photos later when daylight as the photographs are so much better than flash assisted. These short daylight days are a pain.
