Itís been wet and misty all day here so Iíve cracked on a bit with Tregonning. Mainly concentrationg on the main street and the very small stable and field.
Ridge tiles and chimney pots still to do.





As ever, the camera shows up some imperfections and some mistakes (which will be rectified). I will also be adding white lining on the road plus, of course, little people will bring it alive.
I shall be working my way along the road on both sides.
Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks for looking.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Thanks for the latest updates, Martin. It's really coming along extremely well. Alas, the Walls sign on the Cafe is the modern logo not the yellow and blue one I remember from the 1960s. I'm sure you can cover it up with the correct one:

Great modeling :thumbsup:
I'm not a great fan of Metcalf buildings but those look "just right".

It's looking terrific!  A very similar cream Jaguar appears in some photographs of my layout in pre-War days.  It'll be getting collectable by Tregonning's time!  An interesting lorry as well; one of Mr Foden's finest.  And I saw two horses in the pictures, so that's a bonus for me.

Great stuff.

Many thanks.

John

Lovely photo's Martin, the layout has come along leaps and bounds, you have managed to pack a lot in, without making it feel crowded... you have also reminded me that I have made zero progress on my box layout project other than unpacking it!
Thanks for looking - Andrew

So........moving on a bit this afternoon.
Iíve done the garden of the second house along the road

It is a model railway so this evening, I thought Iíd include the branch line train.


A closer vew of the two houses - still have some detailing plus chimney pots to do. Mr & Mrs Thomas have now moved into No 2. Mr Thomas is out inspecting his new garden whilst a couple are entering the park for a stroll (I need to do something about that gap between pavement and park plus I need to add park gates).
Itís good to see that the car has slowed down for the horse.

Finally an overview of the case

The small bungalow, this side of the goods shed will have a largish veg garden. Itís all dug over but nothing is planted yet.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I think it will work totally tickety-boo.  A bit of track cleaning and then a nice train hauled by one of your Union Mills locomotives.  You can observe it whilst enjoying a coup de rouge.

It’s good to see that the car has slowed down for the horse.

Excellent!  It's splendid to see that Cornish motorists observe Sir Malcolm Campbell's 'Three Cs' of motoring.  Jolly nice horse as well!

Thank you very much for these spiffing photographs.
