That really oozes the slightly shabby NLL atmosphere of the BR Blue era (and I mean that nicely :D ). Now you just need to get some assorted undesirables and scrotes to hand around menacingly by the platform entrances and you'll be there!

Don't think Bachmann Scenecraft has done an "Assorted Scrotes, Chavs and Gangstas" set yet - I can see a market opportunity for someone!

Very nice - that captures the rather shabby state of BR in the mid 70s before image consultants, "retail opportunities" and property disposals.

Superb work on the scenics. This layout really oozes neglect and atmosphere so typical of BR.

That which they all say - "atmospheric" is an excellent description. Love it!

What can I say that hasn't already been said! Bottled 80s atmosphere! Great.

The conductor rail looks very effective and neatly installed. What did you use?
