This is the 50th video documenting the building of my layout.  I thought it would be a nice thing to do to look back at is development one the last 33 months.  I also complete the work to fit gutters and downpipes to the Metcalfe terrace houses.  I am also seeking ideas for what to put into a vacant spot near the station.

Great video, as always!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Regarding the empty space, I'd be happy with shops. If I recall, Roger has a similar situation on his excellent Wrenton, but can't check to see if he has or what it is at the moment, as I'm about to try and get back to sleep in hospital!

However your video has cheerfully filled in my uptime! Thanks for posting!  :thumbsup:

Well I'm sorry that you are in hospital but very pleased if the video helped you fill the time.  Shops is a possibility.  A row near a station is quite common.  Thanks for the idea.

Hi Stephen,

Another very nice video. Think you're right that that area needs a building (s) as it would all be a bit too open with the roadways and green areas.

I have little imagination but also think shops would be good. Not sure if you have a pub but the only other thing I can think of at the moment would be a Railway Hotel with public bar for the terraced folk and off duty firemen.

Will try and think more.

Great stuff. Thanks for sharing.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Very interesting and very well produced.
Im not really one for watching videos (in fact I hardly ever do) but I did watch this one through.
Maybe Ill go back and watch some of the others.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Time to reveal the outcome fo my request in my last video for suggestions as to what to put in the vacant space in front of the main station.  I also build and review a gasometer kit that I was sent by N-Scenic and start work on the build of a garden square to go at the end fo a row fo terraces.  Build the Langley playground kit, including my first attempt at painting figures.  And just to make it easy I decided to start with children.

I had a lot of fun making a garden square for the layout using the Langley play park kit. I also. Was able to run the Dol book set Flyng Scotsman with Carmine and cream Gresley teaks supplemented to give a rake of eight coaches. Finally I reveal the next scratch build for the layout

After much head scratching and changes of mind I have finally settled on the design for the scratch build Art Deco hotel that I intend to build.  I reveal all in this video.  You can also enjoy two A3 locomotives at work on the layout, and the latest scenic work around the station.

Hi Stephen,

Looking forward to your Hotel build. I have enough trouble with kits and wouldn't dream of trying to scratchbuild anything but enjoy watching people with your talent doing their thing.

Great stuff as usual.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Thanks weave.  Only hope I can do it justice.  It's one thing to have a clear picture of what you want in your head, quite another to build it.  But it will be fun trying.  Setphen

In this episode I begin the first tentative steps of building the art deco Hotel.  I also find a way to make some belisha beacons by raiding my wife's sewing box.  Two Streaks get to stretch their legs pulling some Gresley Teaks, and I show a few small scenic projects.
