Canopies look great, Mark, and I can't wait for those atmospheric 'under the canopy' pics.

Hi Everyone,

Many thanks for the kind comments, glad you like it  :thankyousign:

I've completed Platform 3's canopy this evening so this is now in place on the layout. The next job after these is to add the final details to them & adjust the supports to make them completely level. I also need sort out the area around the station front, resurface it with slab effect card, & box in around the main station building.

I then want to get the ballasting done before adding the 'butterfly' style canopy's down the bay platforms..

Here are the pictures of Platform 3 canopy now pretty much complete...









Cheers for now,
Mark

Yup, but wait until Mark has completed all the detailing under the canopy and you'll love 'em too ;D

Hi Mark,

good to see you (quite literally :goggleeyes:) and Shrewford again.
That canopy design is amazing. Something I need to try for my next layout (if I ever find the time to build it...)
Looking forward to your next updates.

Cheers,
Michael

Hi Everyone,

thanks again for the kind comments. Time for an update, despite the spare room being too hot at the moment, I've managed to crack on with the station platform buildings. I wasn't happy with my previous efforts so decided to purchase the Metcalf Warehouse. I chose this because of it's victorian look & thought about hacking it up & creating my station Platform buildings.

The one on the island platform 4 & 7 is big enough to house staff accomodation, male & female toilets & the Buffet & bar. I didn't want too bigger building on the island Platform as it just hides the trains...as nice as buildings are. I wanted to keep much of this platform 'open' tho considering passengers needs in real life  ;)

The building along platform 3 is just a facia that attaches to the back of the main station frontage building. As this platform is lightly used passenger wise, it houses Staff messrooms aswell as the red star office & station managers office. The train announcers office is also located on this platform...

So here is how it is all looking so far...


First up I hacked up the Metcalf factory into suitable sections


The island Platform building almost complete & ready to be glued together


& finally the almost complete facia on platform 3, this needs to be properly finished











Cheers for now  :beers:
Mark

Using the Metcalfe warehouse to build the station is a masterstroke and it looks the biz :thumbsup:
