Yes, it's a kit. You build it yourself.

It's been a long time since I've done anything on my layout as I've been busy getting married. Surprising how much time that takes up!

Here is an updated picture showing new platform and maintenance yard lamp posts (in NSE red), brick walls etc. I'm currently waiting for the new GF station building to come out. I've also added a perspex front to the surrounding of the layout to stop the Mrs bashing it. :roll: :D I'm going to ditch the background (which looks like blue) and replace it with a scaled 20 foot arched brick wall, and either put a town behind it, or a sloping field. I'm not sure yet. I'm keen to expand the army base, so I might do the field for 'training' purposes! :lol:

I've just taken off the old background to reveal the return loop. I'm currently painting the brick walls that I'll place there.

In the picture is 08 633, 58 002, 23 001, and 50 001.

Looks really good Tank. Also I do like your idea of the brick walls instead of the background. I recon it will look alot better :D

Thanks mate. :)

I'm struggling to take pictures on the other side of my layout due to furniture being in the way. I've just bought a new Manfrotto tripod, so hopefully I can get some pictures from elsewhere on the layout. Also, I hope to get some pictures that aren't blurry! :roll: :D

An amazing layout. So much detail! Very inspirational.
This getting married lark really eats into modelling time. Congrats on yours! Six month for me this weekend.
cheers, Mark.

Thanks guys! :)

Right, the latest progress is, the replacement of the two Peco tunnel mouths from the stone to concrete. I've painted them in their base colour so far, which is close to the sandy looking 1930's concrete that SR used a lot round here. I'll also be widening the road to it's full width.

Image

Next I've replaced the old background that was a view across fields and put a long brick wall in there instead. I bought them on eBay from a seller called Baggles. They need a lot of work to get the ends perfect, but will look good when finished. Just a base coat on them at the moment, and some humbrol model filler in the joints - to be painted! :D

Image

Finally, a messy overview of most of the layout. This is taken using my cameras built in flash, so it's not great. I only did it to try out my tripod. :wink: There are returning loops just cut off at the bottom and top of the picture, a 'soon to be' hidden section on the left, and a large depot in the middle. I had to move a few things out of the way for the walls, so it looks a little disorganised. Maybe that makes it look like real life?! :D

Not too many changes worth putting here, but I have bought the new Graham Farish 'Modern Signal Box'. I've painted all the pipe work and doors NSE red, plus added two signs and two BR Arrows to the windows.

Now I just need to find a permanent home for it!
