Enjoying today off. Spending time looking at .... https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https://s0.geograph.org.uk/geophotos/03/34/07/3340757_eb7f9a2f.jpg&imgrefurl=https://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/3340757&tbnid=gWckoBgS5DdY4M&vet=1&docid=NzUi7qJxTa77BM&w=640&h=486&q=warrington+central+cheshire+lines&hl=en-GB&source=sh/x/im                 this is clc architecture at warrington, then there is of course comprising.... would love the garston container freightliner depot, halewood ford and jaguar. Cannot fit all in except on backscenes. Do that I say I be happy. The since demolished freight yard built 1931  , closed 1988 in reality has been modelled, plus the chapel, terraced houses, shops with flats. And created a park  , the wagon repairs works and the other interest ..... heading north, the backscene depicting fiddlers ferry. I discussed with 2 other members on another thread you cannot incorporate everything. Also the chemical works at folly lane  only part of that and tanhouse lane have been created . I love the sweeping curve, the left, and right bends into the Unilever dominated warrington bank quay . 
     
                                  But then I ask what about the eastbound scenery towards widnes ? Compromise was the key

Hi Chris,

That's a fine looking building, would be good to be able to recreate something like that.

Cheers,

Jimmy

Jimmy. @Jimmy77   , afraid that would have to be scratchbuilding. As your modelling london most scalescenes , freestonemodel.co.uk kits would fit in unless unlike lightermans yard would be scratchbuilding and some of mine are. I used plasticard and evergreen items https://evergreenscalemodels.com/ plus the works shed from martin at BHE but also farish  , scalescene and scenecraft

Not much today done here except tidying up the rear board after a wagon derailed. Human error, working in poor light in January meant pins were not driven in, then lockdown, peco closing. Thanks to John dutfield who sold me much better solid pins and a few clearance straight,  pins that's Monday's task. At sankey, the Warrington CLC route. Then today, berko reckon signal on the right, cr signals on the left. Cr signals have a sturdy plate and pin so easier to install after the gimlet and tiny drill came out. Led lights pop in  ,two wires connect soldered onto long wire into 12 v hammant. Darren and I was back added the berko eckon . Nightmare but still works 2 aspect.
