Not often that you find an A4 in a scrapyard - the preservationists will be after that one :P

Re: Wandle Park

Thanks Glencairn. Another little extension and the factory is finally finished (apart from detailing and a wall between the yard & the railway). Thought I'd try something a bit different and have the door on a higher level with a staircase leading up to it. I scratch-built the staircase, my firs...

Re: Wandle Park

Been cracking on this weekend. Nearly finished the retaining wall from the bridge down to the factory, just the coping stones to add.

Re: The North Western Region (NWR)

Coming on well. I used to have a fold-out map of the Island of Sodor, done like an OS map, showing all the lines and how they link together. I think you can still find copies on ebay, might be useful for your project.

Re: Wandle Park

Thanks EndtoEnd. Now you come to mention it, I do remember there being some black railings along a stretch of the Wandle in Carlshalton, I'd totally forgotten about that - better put it on the to do list :roll:

Re: Wandle Park

Happy New Year everyone. Not much progress of late. I've fitted a bit more of the 3rd rail, and the factory has acquired a small extension and a bit more detailing in the yard.

Re: Wandle Park

The powers that be have decided that a fence was needed to stop anyone falling in the river, and the station has acquired a nameboard.

Re: Backscene blending success

Looks good, nice job you've done there. Regarding resizing photos, I use Photo Editor Online - nothing to download and really easy to use, just upload the photo, resize it (really simple to do) then save it back to your computer. You can also use it as a kind of photoshop, I've done that to get rid ...
