And just to prove the lights work!! Down platform has now been surfaced and fences installed. Painting and weathering on that one before lights go on and platform wise this section is ready for mounting to the board and scenery.

Well that's it, the platforms are complete and all weathered, signage added, bench and lampposts. All that remains is the concrete and asbestos roofed platform shelter.

Road bridge is now finished after a few washes of muck and another matt varnish.

Board will be built this week, and by the weekend I hope to have the track laid and ballasted. That then leaves me 16ft of scenery to carve and cover.

I only discovered static grass a couple of weeks ago so my list to Santa has included a Peco static grass applicator, I know lots of others are cheaper and you can make your own but my local shop is a peco stockist and we have a good relationship with him so I need him to stay 15mins up the road!!! So scenery wont be complete before Christmas but it will be quite near and it will give us 8ft of mainline running over Christmas, this doesnt link up with board 2, that is nearly laid but not wired but board 3 could be built at the same time as this one (board 4) and we could then have 16ft of mainline  :claphappy:

Steady it looks like were starting to get somewhere!!!

The lights I am extremely happy with, they are as close to original as I can physically get, 10 for 6 all wired with resistors and run faultlessly out the box.

I have wired these to an old Farish trainset controller which gives me the ability to dim them down to try an imitate a set of 1950s station lamps rather then present day LED bulbs. Bearing in mind the white slab behind the platform reflecting the light back is a piece of plasticard so with that removed and the correct scenery it should look hopefully very atmospheric and realistic

The lights look superb, where did you source them?  I'd like to get some for my little station.

Cheers

@BRMan layouts4u.net

Brilliant service, not massive choice but exactly what I needed. 10 for a set of 6.
