Everything comes back, even layouts that nobody remembers  :)

So, first of all, this is about how it looks like at the Moment...


What‘s new?
- Platform 3 and 4 (Track end)
- Road-Tunnel under Platforms 3 and 4
- Walkway between Platform 4 and the Museum

The next pictures show a few buildings that will be placed in this part of town...




Next steps will be:
- adding some street lamps
- finishing the right hand side of the layout
- adding platform 1 and 2

Cheers,
Mark

Long time no see, Mark! Welcome back! :thumbsup:

The new buildings look great! I'm very impressed with the block of flats!  :beers:

Domino's pizza looks closed, though  :(

Hey.

Thank you very much for your replies; it's that kind of extra motivation (if there will ever be a lick of it... yes there will be... when it's time for railroad electronics...  :doh::)

Please don't regard it as an illeagal ad, but regarding the gelato... If you will ever visit ireland, give Gino's a try :-)
The block of flats has got a front by https://www.inthegreenwoodlaser.co.uk, a great model.
The gelato store is - of course - by mercalfe

The end of the world-part of the layout (the one where no other module will be attached) ;) has now got a pedestrian's road with street lights. The following picture shows the current look. Even though the buildings have got lights too, those are not attached yet.. but maybe tomorrow ;) To the front is an access to the terminus, to the back there will be some other houses or shops.



Okay... Now I will concentrate on my Magners Pear  :beers:

Hello Mark, my fellow countryman! It's good to see another one taking interest in British railway modelling. Your layout looks very promising and I will follow your thread with interest :)

Keep up ze gut work! :D

Pruning Harbour
« Reply #21 on: February 15, 2020, 06:22:08 AM »
Good Morning,

Today's update information comes in a new kind of media. I tried to merge the information in an update video (to be found at the end of this post). But first, a list of what's new, and that might explain why there is a video instead of pictures  :D
So from the west to the east of this (not yet so beautiful but growing) town:
  • The built-in lighting of the Pruning maritime museum got connection to the local utility company
  • The new Pruning harbour master's office, located at port basin 2, started operating, of course also at night
  • Some new shops and a hotel business are about to open or have already opened at the Pruning harbour walk, which connects port basin 2 and Terminus platforms 3 & 4 with the city
  • The pipeline below platform 4 got connected to the city's sewer system



What will be next? I don't know. There are too many things to be done. But I hope to continue with platforms 1 & 2 so i can go finish the east end of the terminus. But who knows... Some industry planers just arrived and maybe...  ::)

So, thank you for reading / watching.  :)

I love the hotel sign! The flashing E and L at the bottom representing dodgy lights are very realistic.... just like you see in the movies!  :thumbsup:

Hi Mark

This work is brilliant and I love your little movie showing it all. It's certainly something different and highly imaginative. I look forward to further developments.

Well done

Hello Mark,

fantastic little video! The hotel sign is a great gimmick, although I would probably :censored: the guy who planted this next to my window... :scowl:

Looking forward to more updates!

Thank you for your replies :) I saw the hotel sign and some others (to come) in a shop selling American Railroad stuff just 20 kms ( 12,5 miles) away from where I live. The shop exists sind 2002 and I just found out about it... Sad story turned good :D
The guy who set up the sign was the guy from the hotel serving you the best fish&chips in town...  :P

No pictures today. ATM i'm working at the platform in the middle of the terminus. Hope to upload some new photos soon.

Cheers, Mark.

Just a quick update from Pruning harbour.

Local police authorities are looking for a graffiti artist who sprayed a newly built house in Pruning harbour. The opinion in the town hall is concordant: "The message of the graffiti shows an impertinent call against all of us". Any relevant evidence on the offender is welcome. :)



Cheers, Mark

Is that a Kestrel kit?

As far as the graffiti goes I'd be looking for a group of Detective Inspectors :hmmm:

Unless I am very much mistaken I think police already got a main suspect. In Coney Island, NY there was a similar case. Could be that there is some kind of connection in-between.

The building is a kestrel kit painted with multiple layers of beige and different kinds of brownish colors. The graffiti was made using the technique to print out the graffiti itself on normal paper and then sandpaper the backside until its hardly destroyed.

Many tutorial videos for this exist which makes a real good result. I like e.g. the one from Jason Jensen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFS2Uas6jzA.

Cheers :)
