The top one isn't from a B set as it has a corridor. I suspect a Collett brake

Curiously, I haven't posted on here in four months and suddenly the thread explodes on its own  :smiley-laughing:
I rather like "WESTON WIDGET WORKS" as a name for the refurbished building  :D
Regarding the B set Nobby, the top one IS a Collett, shown for colour comparison with the B set coach below.
I came to the conclusion that it IS a maroon B set, so I'm on the lookout now for a crimson set.

I haven't posted for a while as we have had a lot going on - my mother suddenly fell seriously ill in March, and passed away peacefully at the end of June.
I have a whole load of updated photos to put on here eventually. We are still in limbo at the moment, waiting for the funeral later this week.
Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible....

Sorry to hear about your Mother, but at least she is at peace now.  Looking forward to 'normal service'.

Thanks for all your kind wishes.
I hadn't realised that the B sets are a current Dapol model, so a quick visit to our friends in Liverpool's website and we have:



Having now seen the crimson version, there is absolutely no way of mistaking it for maroon!  :smiley-laughing:

Okay, you asked for it  :D
I haven't done much for the last couple of months, but this is what I built earlier in the year:



A Metcalfe low relief station building that was on the layout when I bought it. I have taken it apart, then rebuilt it using Scalescenes papers and signage.



A Scalescenes low relief hotel - I LOVE this building, it is beautiful! I was determined to fit it in somewhere  :D



Scalescenes low relief High Street buildings.





These were all Metcalfe buildings that were on the layout already, but in very bashed about damaged condition.
The whole lot have been taken apart and rebuilt/modified using Scalescenes papers.



Scalescenes three storey houses with two shops on the end.



Terrace turned round so that you can see the other side.



The terrace that I am currently working on, when I can find my mojo again. They have no backs at the moment.
There will be more shops on the end, and shops converted to a house on the other end.
A service alley will pass between the two terraces.



A scalescenes kitbashed factory. The basic factory is a standard kit, albeit built larger.
The creamery was a Scalescenes OO model given away free in Hornby magazine.
I have reduced it to N gauge, and then bashed it to fit into the front of the factory.
I am rather pleased with the result.



Close up Creamery detail.

I am struggling to find the motivation to get on with the layout at the moment.
I need to do something, as it is booked into my club's Open Day in October!
It doesn't have to be finished, as we show our works in progress, but I certainly need to make transportation cases for the layout, and I would like to get the town end as finished as possible.....

Carry on the good work. Those scalescenes pieces look stunning. Really admire the low relief townscape. Keep going, the hotel and the warehouses stand out. Must be pleased. Chris

Excellent stuff, and you are giving me "low relief" ideas for the town side of my layout!

Cheers  :beers:
