Once again I have been inspired by the latest pictures and in my efforts to create a fairly reasonable attempt at realism with off the shelf items and a lot of patience I have started the through station, here are few photos of progress to date again it is not finished.
I have been pleased with the results, the station canopies are Wills Kits and while fiddly to assemble and to paint this takes many hours they do look credible in my view. Hope everyone likes them and there are more to come as progress continues albeit at a slow pace!
The ballast either side of the foam underlay is a mix of the cheap to buy scatter blended then some coal and other rubbish strewn about, some tweaks still to be done such as sleeper walkways and paths and weeds etc
Here’s a few more photos… there’ll be a few panoramic after I resize them. Please add to your post that the layout has been dismantled and that there are no videos – just lots of photos. When I get things up and going again in the basement of our new house & get everything unpacked, I’ll find the layout plan & send a copy of it to you.
Bob’s layout was featured on the previous post if you missed it. It caused quite a stir.
A big thanks to Steve too. It’s a fantastic work in progress and pleasing to hear he finds this site is inspiring. I’m encouraged to go on!
That’s all for today folks. Please do keep ’em coming.
And if today is the day you get started on your layout, the Beginner’s Guide is here.
