Great stuff, Stu. I think in the first set (reply#302) you have duplicated one pic and in the first pic of reply #303 it does look as if a certain Mr. Hitler is still alive and discussing his favourite vegetables with Mrs Miggins next door! :goggleeyes:

Really , really good.
Excellent photos. I particularly like the black and white shot of the car & van by the gate and the same scene but looking up at the terrace of houses.
Really excellent modelling.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

well done!

Lovely photos.
That viaduct is the one Iíve utilised on a club layout. Itís a nice model  which youíve painted beautifully.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Lovely. Good to see the ballast in the wagons heaped up and not neatly level.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.
