Well work turns back to the weighbridge, imitation computer screens and cctv screens have now been added to the desk and stools, glazing and lighting.

Jeff and Charlie are still stood outside whinging about their hours and how hard life is!!!

The weighbridge has now had proper tube and clamp fitting guard rails added to both sides, the ramps have had a yellow kerb added and it's all been lightly weathered including a few oil drops and puddles.

Barriers still need painting and stop signs adding, grit salt bin added in front of the office and a few more barrier kerbs to be added to protect the lamppost from vehicles leaving the truck park.

Site signage has been added to the lamppost as you arrive telling drivers about the site safety.

Starting to get close with all the structural work at Clifton Wood.

Logs are chipped and conveyored into the blending shed where it is mixed with other woodchip brought in by trailer.

After being mixed in the shed it is then fed into another hopper where it exits the shed on the south elevation.

Here it climbs 30ft and drops into a horizontal conveyor that runs it 150ft into the loading shed, here it is loose shovelled into walking floor or bulk tipper trailers to leave by road or into Drax biomass hoppers to leave by rail.

There are 5 yard lamps underneath the horizontal conveyor and the work is now to build the pillars that are required to carry this box across the yard, the shed that sits outside the blending shed to allow it to be sent into the conveyor, along with all the fencing and safe access path required.

@njee20 cheers Nick, it's taking shape, just need my brother  in law to sort out the backscene!!!! The structures are only corrugated sheet overlaid on standard plasticard. Nothing exciting about much of them really  :-\ just miniature versions of our own sheds!!!

All the supporting legs have now been added to the conveyors and technically all the structural side of Clifton Wood is now complete.

Everything now needs detailing and the 7million pieces of willow now need to be added along with all the biomass fuel.

All lighting is installed, wired up and fully working.

don't worry Craig,

as it's N gauge, I'm sure you could get away with only making 6 million  :smiley-laughing:

Call an ambulance quick Craig, looks like one of the workers has been run over and is flat out by the processing plant doors.

He doesnít look in a good way, might be too late for the ambulance looks like rigor mortis has already set in  :(

Lighting complete and tested. It's hard to photograph clear shots with lots in focus, limitations of a phone camera!!!,

3m of willow has been cut up to form 1 pile 60mm long by 20mm high!!! So another 600m to cut up  :'(

Painted up a rubber type speedhump, dont know
1, if it looks right
2, if it's too big
3, whether to put anymore down???

Speed hump looks good to me. An oft-seen but rarely modelled item.

Well the snagging list continues. For obvious reasons my brother in law cant sort the backscene but, work carrys on.

The level crossing is virtually complete, including my attempt to put checkerboard around the light units. Luckily their far enough away to see how bad they are!!!!! Road signage complete as are the actual street lights. Crossing cameras, white NR fencing all finished, just need to put the yellow phone case on the fence now.

Looking great.

If looking for more clutter, try shedringhobbies they do pallets, building site fencing, site cabins, 40yrd skips etc.
I does look as if you have some of their items on there already.
Just got to scroll through their site and all the OO stuff as the 1:148/150 scale is all mixed in.

Now the juggle of completing 1 layout against cracking on with another!!!!!

Spent an hour after my days work applying road markings to the roads, that certainly took some concentration!!!!

Happy with most of them, theres a few that hopefully normal viewing look acceptable  :-\




And as I cant sort the backscene I cut and painted the front piece for the layout, hides all the sundela board edge and cellotex hill side.

There will be a left hand side to blank off the low relief loading shed but no right hand as that's the fiddle yard and I have 2 sidings to set wagons up on



Amazing what a difference 1 piece of ply does to the appearance!!
