Two more pics.

The parking lot, now with crash barriers. When painted over, they look quite o.k. Instead of a chainlink fence I used GWR spear fencing as it has a much nicer look to it :)



Some of the patterns I used for doing the road marking

Another night shot. This time it's 1C86 "The Cornishman" from London Paddington to Penzance

Today I started to add static grass to my layout. I had never done it before as all my previous projects got stuck long before I could even think of vegetation.

This time it seems to be different and the outcome is quite motivating :)

Agreed. I think that static grass makes a huge difference to layouts visually.
Looks good.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Those double yellow lines look particularly good and the very pale old 'SLOW' looks amazing. 

Great work!

Totally agree. The slow sign looks like the real thing!

Like the new static grass, too.  :thumbsup:

Very nice shots! The road markings look excellent, and makes the scene very realistic.

Great job!

Hello and thanks for your encouraging comments! ;D

This week I completed the installation of the "down" starter signal "SE6". Can anyone tell me, why this signal has to be shorter than the others?



And I planted some more trees. 2C69 from Bristol Temple Meads has just arrived ;)

I think itís simply to aid visibility against the background.
