Looking very good, George.
Not so sure about the NCP car park on top of the track, though :hmmm:

Not on the track Mick, the tracks end before it and platform leads into the station and NCP multi story.

Rule 1 may need to be waved at you :P
Geominster was my first project which has now been dismantled.

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

Looking really very good indeed.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I can see the buffers but in photos 1 & 2 it looks as if the rails continue under the building.
I must be having an optical delusion :goggleeyes:

Looks good but the main thing is that you are enjoying it and that is what it's all about. :thumbsup:

When I started model railways about five years ago with my original OO gauge I looked at Metcalfe buildings and tried a couple but was never happy with them and struggled to get them to look right, now I have decided to try again with N Gauge and I am pleased with the results so far, the appearance is good and I have decided to populate Geominster with them, I may illuminate some during the building. The bridge is the first one I have made and as I only wanted a narrow access into town used just one half of the width which compliments the rest of the road system I am adopting.





Thanks for posting that, by happy coincidence I was just wondering about how that bridge looks placed over a double track as I'm planning on using the red brick version.

I managed to do quite a lot at Geominster this weekend. I have built the upper level retained by the brick wall and gives road access to the Heritage Line Station via a footbridge yet to be built. The backscene trees are by Wordsworth and are perfect for the setting I wanted to create, just resized them and cut and joined them. The station building will be fixed to the paving base board and is removable for access to Nelevator tracks. Next to do is the access road to the station.


Why are the photos inverted they are ok in the file they are stored grr. ??




It's the right way up for me  :thumbsup:

Looking very good too. Are you going to hide some of the Nelervator?

 :hmmm:

So are they showing up-side down when you preview your post? Or when you publish?

Like I said I am looking at your posts and they are perfect.

Did you take the photo on your phone? Currently viewing this in my iPhone.

I am afraid this is a known problem with Apple. I have found the only reliable way round it is to use DropBox and post links.

Apart from that it's a rather tedious trail and error method.

Lets start again the right way up then.

I managed to do quite a lot at Geominster this weekend. I have built the upper level retained by the brick wall and gives road access to the Heritage Line Station via a footbridge yet to be built. The backscene trees are by Wordsworth and are perfect for the setting I wanted to create, just resized them and cut and joined them. The station building will be fixed to the paving base board and is removable for access to Nelevator tracks. Next to do is the access road to the station.



















Hope that is better and apologies for the Aussie version earlier.

My type of layout with attention to the detail and the scenery. Keep the updates coming.
