There is one yard in the name, it is basically two yards long, but with three yards of sidings, I should be able to get quite a few wagons on scene.

Re: Steam shed/depot ground cover tips needed!

Tile grout - the powdered stuff not ready mixed, add a little black paint when you mix it to give a dark grey colour. Add the blacker sections later.

The scenery has long gone, but the circle of track still exists in a test track format. The bearded fat man in a red suit brought me a little train with the view of kickstarting my layout building, but six months on it hasn't got into gear yet.
