That good yard is looking fantastic. Nice work. I'll take some inspiration from it for mine.

BTW, what does "permanent way" mean? Its a phrase that keeps popping up on here?

Thanks Dave.

The "Permanent Way" is the term for the rails, sleepers & ballast.

More New Rolling Stock......

Here are some new Hudson wooden plank wagons:
Image
Image
The first 2 are new, the second 2 have been re painted to match.

The granite wagons I'm working on are nearly complete:
Image
Image
Next job is to finish the couplings. Loops on each end of the rake and coupled in between with chains. The couplings also need painting. The wagons will be filled with ballast and weathered.

Thanks Michael.

The granite wagons now have couplings & loads:

They just need numbers & weathering now.

I have also repainted my WW1 bogie wagon in a matt brown the same as the Hudson wooden plank wagons:
Image
It was previously painted satin brown which was too smooth & shiney.

Here is a new carriage shed for board 1......

I didn't like the old one so decided to make a more authentic one. It has a very small plastic frame inside that is clad with matches. It's finished with Humbrol 80 Green, 27 Grey for the legs & Carrs weathering powder.

Had to write to say the weathering on that carriage shed is superb! Can really sense and feel the damp wood. The weathered roof adds so much realism too!

Hello Jason,
Excellent modelling. The shed is superb and the atmosphere, you've created, in the Yard feels so realistic. I feel better already :lol:
Kind Regards,
Michael Thornberry.

Thanks for the comments.

Here are a few pictures of the improved “greenery” etc I have added to board 1……

I have added some underbrush, grass, rusted lengths of rails & sleepers to the shed area to clutter it up a bit:

Image
Image
Image

A wooden walkway has now been added to the front of the loco shed. It’s made of matches, painted with sleeper grime & weathered with Carr’s powders:
Image

Some other areas of board 1 have also had more greenery added:
Image
Image
Image
Still plenty more greenery to add. It’s a slow process!

These are the 2 tunnel portals that lead from board 1 through to board 2. The original rocks have been covered with slate dust, chippings & small pieces of slate. I think the rocks now look better than before:

I have made a bit more progress on the tunnel top. Pictures to follow……

That's looking brilliant.
I especially like the 4th pic with the row of houses and back gardens

The extra clutter adds nicely to the realism too, I'll have to remember the piles of rusted rails when I get to that stage with mine !

Hello Jason,
A nip here, a tuck there, throw a few sleepers and rail around, toss a packet of greenery into the air whilst heaving another 50 ton of rock onto the tunnel-surround and what do you get? Modellers Heaven!!!! :roll: :lol: :P I could do with you living closer so I could "bounce ideas" off of you. Excellent, Jason, keep-up the Good Work,
Kind Regards,
Michael Thornberry.

Thanks Tinman.

As all the track I used was Peco 009 flexi so there are always off cuts & spare sleepers. It makes good use of them. I couldn't think of what else to clutter it up with!!

Thanks Michael. (I like to think there's a bit more skill involved than that :lol: :lol: :lol: ). I now seem to have gone crazy with the underbrush. It's growing everywhere :roll: , but I like it :D . I have the main tunnel to cover with the dust and slate chippings. I fear there will be a lot of hoovering up to do on the layout after that :roll:
