Moving on to the creamery. Yesterday and today, Iíve got the bare bones done to give an idea as to how it will look.

So we hav3 the outline of the main building but no detailing yet.Where the 2 white card pieces are will be sliding doors. Above this across to the small island will be a sloping roofed canopy. Various bits are drying.
The squarish building to the left of the tanker will have a loading bay (with canopy) opening onto the near siding.
There will be various pipes, a chimney, two large storage tanks and a rail tanker cleaning facility.
The Palethorpes van was the first siphon to come to hand for sizing and, of course, the 08 is in use for clearance testing.
Lots to do but it is coming together.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Wonderful progress!  This will be an attractive building.

The creamery is ahead of its time in the bottling system used, going by the number of plastic milk bottle tops that are in the picture!

Thank you for the photograph.

Best wishes.

They are ideal for mixing small quantities of paint.

Iíve been workng on the creamery.

Iím not sure about it but I think it will look ok when all the other scenery is in place. Still a lot to do on the building and more buildings and pipework to add to tye creamery complex.
Iím not one for perfection model wise as I prefer my buildings to be viewed at normal distance and sitting in the landscape. Hopefully itíll be ok.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

thanks for the latest update with photo., Martin. The creamery is coming along well. It's well worth adding guttering and downpipes, I think.

Looks great Martin, I share your habit of collecting the tops of plastic containers to mix paint on ... out here at work we get big 5L water bottles to fill the tea urn (though it only ever seems to be me who seems to fill it    :veryangry: ) and they have great shallow 40mm diameter lids

Your thread has inspired me to think about a track plan for my own Keyboard case that is currently languishing in my workshop. ... been a good distraction in boring meetings & I am getting close to an idea I can start to share.

Coming on well :thumbsup:
Just a thought, using small quantities of paint, wouldn't it be better to use beer bottle tops. Certainly more fun emptying the contents.  :beers:

Work is ongoing with the creamery but it involves lots of construction, sticking and painting so no puctures for a day or so.
However, I have this signal. Does it look ok?
It may not be prototypically correct but I think itís not far off. Do people think it looks ok? Just blu tacked into place for now:

Plus, Iíve been working on the area around the station yard/car park and the paddock opposite. This is how itís looking. That station ramp isnít fixed yet and will have railings attached. The young chap seems to have made friends with the horse.

And this is an over iew of the left side of the case as it stands at the moment :

Iím reasonably pleased with the way this area is developing so far.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.
