That mural looks like a Banksy. Be careful someone doesn't sneak in during the night, cut it out and put it on eBay.

Just in case.............

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

Hi. I hope I find you all well, especially in these days. But it's also time for a minor update report. I tried to make a youtube video but i failed so badly. Therefore only text and pictures :-) Ok... So, I show a small update about a building complex and the harbour later.

First of all. Pruning Police still didn't catch the Graffiti guy. But after getting some hints Police is now searching for some guy calles Graf-Artie. Another suspect is Carl R. (Crazy Dent). Latest informations also show a link between the graffiti and the theft of a ladder from the local hardware store. We just have to wait and see...

Despite this, some guy from Cornwall is planning to steal ideas. Crazy times... :-p

New station / shopping centre
The plans to build a small town station have been cancelled. In this seaside town the demand for a shopping centre has to be covered. There will be a combined shopping centre / station building. Some stores are already build while others are still to be finished. But pictures show more than words do:

Shops on level 0, eastern building. ToDos: Lighting, Doors etc, Accessoires


View from the escalator on level 1, western building towards eastern building


Overview


Harbour, basin 2
The first ship has arrived to harbour basin 2 of pruning harbour. So many layers of colour had to be done but i'm content with the result. I have to finish the quay and fill in some water next. But all holes have to be fixed before the water runs in :-) So, I might destroy the room or the water will look great, let's see :)


That's all for the latest update. To all of you: stay healthy. :-)
Cheers, Mark

I just want to post an update on the Shopping centre / Train stration. Meanwhile the first floor store and the national rail ticket office have been built. Lighting has been added to the first level and ground level, also the railing. Also a food chain moved in to the second level.



An overall view:



Thank you Derek and Danny.
Your daughter's workplace will be the last to be finished and opened in Pruning Waterfront Centre. Hopefully all real shops will be opening soon again, too.

Cheers, Mark

Nice work.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Hi everybody. Just a quick update of what has happend at Pruning Waterfront Centre / Pruning Harbour Station. :)

The grocery store is about to open. Shelves are filled. Electricians are expected soon to do the lighting.


Railing has been finished except where the bridge to building 2 will be built.


Brickwork has been done. A supermarket and a clothing store are moving in.


View over both buildings. Pruning harbour station will be behind the buildings on first floor


Guess that's all. Stay healthy and... cheers, Mark

Pruning Harbour
« Reply #44 on: May 03, 2020, 07:09:28 PM »
Hello everyone,

Let's go back in time: in February I thought: Let's make a video every month to show the update of the layout on youtube. So I uploaded the February 2020 update video. Well, I couldn't manage to make one for March and April because I was never content with what I did. So now, I uploaded the May 2020 update video... I hope it contains some nice pictures :-)

  • Ship in Pruning Harbour basin 2 in moving pictures
  • Flyover the Pruning Harbour station / shopping centre
  • New rolling stock, Class 220 Virgin
  • Lighting in some houses

I hope it's not too bad :-)



That's all for today... Need to read all other topics now :-)

Cheers, Mark.
