I'm struggling with weathering my dapol magnets into the sidings and am after some help or guidance.

This has only been weathered with powders, I was thinking of trying to make this really thick gungy oil and grease as locos can stable here and the shunter will live here when not actually shunting. So if anyone has ideas for creating thick grease, suppose I could scrape some off the 3 point link on the back of my Deere  ;D

I am quite pleased with the orange trunking so I've left that with relatively fresh ballast as if theyve had to dig it out to replace some cable or something. Mostly because I want people to see it  :-[

How about black acrylic paint applied thickly, (as in 'blob')  :)? It will, (eventually), dry hard.

I think were getting close to finishing the weathering of the track and getting it looking like a working yard now











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

The shed is now complete along with all HSE signage and lighting.



Quite pleased with the floodlights, think they give enough light to make it realistic, it will be better when the dud pair get replaced!!

Some daylight shots of the loading shed complete with all HSE signage.



Front loaders access the shed by the door opening, we have black and yellow wasp stripes on the door frame and
SOUND HORN DRIVE SLOWLY
CAUTION MOVING VEHICLES
DRIVERS BEWARE OF PEDESTRIANS
signs in an attempt to be correct.



The standby generator sits directly against the sidewall of the shed and is permanently on standby ready to kick in to service, this along with the roof access is protected by standard 2m security fencing and a Chevron marked parking area for any engineers that need to be here. Signage outside of the gate
HAZARDOUS AREA PERMIT TO WORK MUST BE OBTAINED 
SITE SAFETY SIGN on the gate

At the foot of the access ladder a
HARD HAT
SAFETY HARNESS
HIGH VISIBILITY CLOTHING
MUST BE WORN sign

At the top of the ladder on the safety walkway a
SAFETY LINE MUST BE ATTACHED TO SAFETY POINTS
FRAGILE ROOF CRAWLING BOARDS MUST BE USED
Sign is in place.

The roof safety walkway might be adapted to allow access to the gulley for maintenance purposes although on the rare occasion I had to do any remedial work on roofs of this nature and access we usually just scrabbled around the gaurdrail and lowered ourselves into the gully whilst our harness and safety line were still attached to anchor points.

@degsy_safc Cheers Derek, it's just something thrown together after the mistakes I made on the last attempt. Be a nice little plaything while we build the monster I hope!!!!
