As ever thoughts and comments, positive and especially negative welcome!!!

Personally I think it looks bl@@dy awful, a toddler could do better.

Well you did ask  :bounce:



Everything looks superb as ever, I hope my stuff turns out half as good as that.
I would think about tidying up the ballast from the concrete apron though, most private sidings have very little, as loco speeds are so low.

Regards,

Fancy not knowing your ballast from your chippings!  ;D

I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.

nice to know you are human, and can make the very odd minor mistake.

better get a painter up a ladder before the site manager sees it  :)

The last major structural piece of Clifton Wood has now been temporarily installed.

This is the enclosed conveyor belt that climbs from the processing shed into the new storage and loading shed. It is 980mm overall and the 850mm level section is now all 1 piece!!!

The previous rendition I simply glued the legs to the board but with some learnt knowledge this whole piece is removable, I drilled 1.5mm holes into the baseboard at the angles of the legs and then I have a 2.2mm socket, it looks like a beefed up section on the bottom of steel legs and these slide over the top of the sockets and hold it all in place!! It has worked surprisingly well.

The beginnings of the safe walkway to and from each shed have been marked out with yellow safety lines and tube and clamp fencing. This is just galvanised with the yellow ends to denote caution!!!! The street lights have now been added along this section.

We have now been left with a section of concrete between the walkway and service road, this will now be used for drivers to strap cover sheets or tidy away their straps before parking up or leaving site! Almost like I'd planned it  :-[









I'm sure someone going to wait till the end of this build and tell me they work either for AW Jenkinson or at a log / biomass plant and EVERYTHING is wrong and wouldnt be worked like this  :'(

Whilst researching AW Jenkinson it was discovered that they own a skip company that go under the name of A&A Recycling Ltd, a good chunk of their work is pallet recycling so after creating a roll on of skip wagon and trailer, although in full AWJ livery this was to represent this part of the business



There is now a section of the yard devoted to skips and pallet recycling, there are a few roll on off skips to adorn the yard but one project today was to use up some 12yard skips I already had. This highlights one big missing truck on the fleet, a generic skip wagon, bit of a long term project that one as all the current N gauge offerings are horrendous against the magnificent oxford vehicles that grace the yard.

The load has been made from Model Rail Scenerys wonderful pallet kits, I have numerous packets of these so today 28 were built (the jig allows you to build 7 at a time) and 2 skips were roughly painted in A&A green (conveniently the same green as AWJ) with various attempts at rust and scratches



Once the load has set I'll give the skip a bit of a dusting over to try to make it look a bit better, worst case is its gets stuck in a corner of the yard waiting to be emptied!!!!
