Results of some serious airbrushing to blend the ballast along with weathering of the rails and sleeper grime by the train load!!



Notice the concrete floor now painted in the larger shed



Also crane positioned for effect and someone dumped a dcc peak there too!



Eventually the dummy Hymek in the photo will have the roof cut open and be put under the crane with a new engine situated under the crane on the hardstanding some people milling about etc

Couple of Minor updates to show you here...


first shed at night with working LED's and a better photo!

A little more detailing added around the first shed with brush etc



Also added a class 15 Signalbox to control the entrance and exit to the depot as well as the junction


As you can see above I used DAS clay as the hard standing then painted it once dry to match the rest of the paths etc..

I haven't posted here in a while, so for those of you who don't follow the facebook forum, here is a little update to my progress with Broom Hill...

Backscene repainted and a Dremel taken to my farish resin factory units in order to make them low relief!....
Bushes and Woodland Scencics scatter have been attached to hide the imperfections in the backscense as well as make it more pleasing on the eye.  All buffer stops have now been built from the readily available Peco kits and each has had a red LED attached.



The next photo shows the placement of the Farish Washplant and the beginnings of yard lights



Got my ladder dimensions slightly incorrect when creating my tall four headed yard light :)

All the buildings have some form of lighting, be it flood lights or internal lighting.  Since I took those pictures I have converted the white LED's on the floodlights to warm white for period lighting....



Lights all wired in so time for some poor photography!













Now its onto Board 2 ...!!



Can you ever have enough Westerns !! ?

Really nice.
I too feel that the b&w shots are the best. They really bring out the atmosphere I think.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

This is great, lights really add to the scene.

What model is the large shed? Do you know which era it is too?
