Hi George,

Not my thread and hope Pjlons83 doesn't mind but to enlighten you, baps are soft bread rolls (might just be a Southern England term?). They are also slang for a lady's breasts. Hope that doesn't offend anyone in the mad world of political correctness.

Cheers weave  :beers:

I wasn't aware of the former, but coming from the north east, it's probably not surprising.

I was aware of the other meaning, strangely enough  ;)

I appear to have lowered the tone somewhat  :-[ it’s all meant in good humour. I remember when I was much younger visiting a model village in Torquay (I think) and there were a few cameo scenes in amongst the scenery. I remember one of a window cleaner getting a surprise through one of the upstairs windows.  :o I enjoy that kind of “childish” humour in the right context; Innocent to the kids but enough that the odd grown up may raise a chuckle or discreet smile.

It is only my fun hobby after all  :beers:

Funnily enough, I knew that a bap wa a bread roll, but I didn't realise it was also a jug. :-[
With kind regards

My exclamation was meant in good humour too! It is all a bit of fun. Childish is good! Ask my family, friends, colleagues etc! :D

I'd have thought it would have been buns, being in a bread bin!

What's a bap, by the way?  :confused2:

What's a bap - you have lived down under too long George!  ;)

A good few hours tonight has seen the front left corner looking almost complete. Nothing is fixed down yet but I’m currently in favour of it. I’ll give it a few days before committing.

It would be great to get some opinions on it. The back scene (on the side) is not permanent yet but again I’m currently very happy with how it’s coming together.







I’ve also received a few bits and pieces from Mick (NewportNobby) this week that will add some detail to the yard and trackside areas. If anybody has any pictures of these speed restrictions signs completed and installed then that would be very helpful. I cant get my head around what the final thing should look like  :help:



Thank you in advance and thanks again for looking!  :thumbsup:

Looking good, but personally, I would turn the benches through 180 degrees, so people can sit and watch the trains go by as they nibble on Ellie's Baps!  :)

Good point. I did wonder that myself. Theses particular benches are a little over scale I think so there’s some on my shopping list for Warley!

Hi,

Looking good although in my mind the original thought was that there would be a wall between the track and the paving so it didn't look like a platform.

You could always have some kids standing on the benches as they are and looking over the wall at the trains. Just my thinking.

Cheers weave  :beers:

I’ve been thinking about this and I think I might fence it. I agree with Weave that it looks too much like a platform. I want to avoid using the same fencing as I’ve used around the factory. I’m off to search for round metal railings. If anybody has any ideas then please do share.  :hmmm:

Thank you

I agree, a wall or fencing will make it less like a platform.
How about the Ratio GWR fencing, perhaps painted green or red or whatever colour you fancy?
Maybe a few potted plants to liven it up? Barrells with a little greenery glued on too work quite well.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I'm still worried about the baps.

Can it be changed to burgers?
