Thanks for the update, Martin. They all look good. The signalman should now be able to see the junction from the corner of the signalbox.

Yes, Iíve checked that he can see plus heíll be able to see the signal (when it appears). Iím thinking of adding point rodding from the box to the junction. I have a plan to replicate the rods.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

That looks better :thumbsup:
It could double up as a Cornish Pasty, without carrots of course, deli where the pasties are sun baked on the roof in Cornish sunshine. A nice little earner for the signalman :)

Excellent, Martin. I look forward to seeing how you tackle the point rodding; not often modelled in N Scale.

Quite a lot done today but I have lots of weights holding things down whilst glue dries so no photos except this attempt at a short section of point rodding.

Itís a bit untidy and I need to do a bit more scenic work. It actually looks better to the eye than in this close up. The rodding is not quite complete and not painted.
Iím still in two minds about it but will sleep on it.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Thanks for the update, Martin. I think the point rodding looks good and will look even better when you've finished it. I'd keep it.

Isn't it a bit narrow to sleep on? :worried:

Having slept on it the result is....a bad back (only joking). Decided to stick with the point rodding.
Lots of titivating with the grassy area of the layout today which is now nearing completion. An overall shot today to show progress.

Lots to do on and around the station but I think Iíll now move on to the creamery next as that is a major scenic project and will (hopefully) be a focal point.. It will occupy the area around the two sidings over by the small tube of glue.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

That is looking really good. It gives the impression of looking much bigger than it is. :goggleeyes:  Impatient to see the creamery. :thumbsup:

Itís a few weeks since I ran a train on Tregonning so this evening, I thought I had better check that all was ok.
We see a 64xx pannier with a short goods on the completed scenic section.
Sorry itís a little fast. Where Iíve been working (with glue, paint, grass etc) the tracks are covered with all sorts of gunk and need a good clean.
Works ok though.

This is fantastic progress, Martin.

My travels over the past couple of weeks led to me being four pages out of date with this thread.

I have now taken advantage of being snowed in to catch up.

This is going to be a terrific layout.

With all best wishes.
