Hi Mick  :wave:

the buildings will look great once you have Blended them in with the scenery  :thumbsup:

That is when you get round to doing the scenery instead of playing "choo choos"  :laugh:  :laugh:  :laugh:  :angel:

Seriously the layout is looking good and having seen it in the flesh i know we can expect great things to come  :thumbsup:

all the best

dave  :thumbsup:

I'd missed this thread! Great stuff Mick. Why is it that I find the Farish Western better looking than the Dapol one? I think something is wrong with me!

The maroon and green certainly look good together.

Your wish is my command, Oh Great One. :P



Needless to say, being a coffeeholic this is the 'bucket' size and takes a full kettle to fill it :D

Matches your Blackpool T shirt, Mick!  :thumbsup:

Talking of T shirts, I saw one in a souvenir shop in Windsor that read: "Keep calm, there's one prince left"  ;D I thought that was funny, anyhow.

Ps those green and maroon diesels look f.a.b.  :thumbsup:

The good news is they are coming to Peterborough :thumbsup:
The bad news is the ones I have are the 'standard' mug size, not the bucket so you'll just have to fill it more often :P

Having purchased a few lengths of retaining wall, I placed a sample piece where it will be sited. My question is this:-
The top of the retaining wall only protrudes 5-6mm above the upper baseboard level and the rubber underlay is 1.5mm thick. In effect, I will only have a 2ft wall on the upper level.
Could I get away with this or would I need to find summat to put under the base of the wall to increase the height? Any guidance would be appreciated. :thankyousign:
