Hi Martin,

Had a play and raised the back-scene up in 7.5 mm steps (pencil widths) and 15 mm looks a lot better. A couple of shots of the station from across the field let others comment.





Placed the signal box on the layout to get an impression if it fits, its backstory will be that it replaces an earlier box (or frame, Almwch only had a frame). The model is being re-purposed, I originally scratch built it for a club layout (based roughly on Colwyn Bay) called Bryn-y-Mor and the model was based on the signal box to the west of Colwyn Bay station. The layout was scrapped a few years back so I reclaimed it. It has a detailed interior and the board does have correct layout for that Colwyn Bay box, not that it will ever be seen. It needs the steps and stove pipe replacing, scale tubular handrails in n gauge tend to be rather delicate.



Thanks for looking, R
Best regards
Rowlie

Hi Rowlie

That looks better as far as Iím concerned.

Regards

Martin
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

With the station alterations laid out, had to see what the only other major structure on this board, the goods shed will look like.



Onto the detailing....
Best regards

Slow progress on the detailing, so although photos taken they are not really worth posting. Currently finishing off the goods shed with some internal detail including fitting a crane (really would of been easier before I fixed the roof).
After a while thinking about it I have taken the plunge and bought a static grass applicator (the Peco precision one) so have been experimenting on various parts of the board. So far the results are mixed, definitely a knack to it so more practice required. Thanks for reading R
Best regards
