Here's what happened during the last two months:

The signal box is now complete with lighting and interior (Ratio kit)


I had no idea that the valve gear of n-gauge steam locos stands out that much :hmmm: After some modifications (of the track, not the loco!) "Tornado" can now at least run on track 1 without getting stuck or scraping along the platform walls.


The latest addition to the fleet: GBRf 66789 and some Mk1 coaches :thumbsup:


Cheers!

Thanks for the update..
A lovely layout indeed.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

 :hellosign:
and thanks a lot for your comments! ;D It's been another two months of (very) slow but steady progress.

Here's the staff building (or whatever its purpose was) at St Erth station. It's a picture from my first stay in Cornwall in 2017 which gave me the idea of building a British-themed layout after all.


And here's my interpretation made from some scrap material from a dismanteled Metcalfe building


I've decided to do a complete rebuild of the station building as I was never quite satisfied with its overall appearance and the lighting in particular. This time I built it with interior and better lighting including 15 cold-white LEDs under the canopy and warm-white LEDs within the building.


Here are some new night shots of Rose-an-Grouse, now with all lighting installed






I hope you like it! ;)

Many thanks for the excellent photographs.
