Both road and rail use signposts to convey
information for example speed limit signs. Nowadays signs are everywhere. To
produce a good looking layout it is important to cover it in the correct
signposts. This both gives you more detail in your layout and more accuracy.
Below is a word document that you can download some signs which I have
used on my layout.

You can buy these from model shops but why buy
when you can print your own. I printed mine on glossy photo paper and then
painted the back grey for realism. I then mounted them on a length of thin
metal rod which I also painted them an appropriate colour.
This is a red brick which has an old look to it.
I have used it to line my loco shed. I am very pleased with the overall look
of the building. All it needs is some roof tiles or corrugated sheets to
finish it off.
Simply print this brick off on white paper (no
need for photo paper as bricks are not meant to look glossy). You can resize
them if you want them to be larger or smaller.
