Here's the shed and stores building, now fully painted and wired up. I had to research the colour of the shed: I eventually plumped for Humbrol Cockpit Green which does the job IMHO. The shed roller-shutter doors are painted RailMatch Warning Yellow.

Looking good.
I like the colour of the shed. Have you painted the inside and if so wot colour?
The wall lights are particular good!
The overall night effect is very convincing.

Andy,

I've painted the interior roof Diesel Clag Dark Black, the walls dark grey (same colour as the roof).

Lovely work and fantastically atmospheric - this has convinced me to 'light up' Eastfield North when I restart in the new year.

That is outstanding! Can I copy it in about 2 years time when I eventually get some track down? :roll:

Thanks .. be warned that this lighting lark is addictive!! I've a few more to add to the shed area, but I'm going to have a break for a bit as I am suddenly sick of the sight of electrical wiring ...

Here's my last installation for a while, one of Levington's street lights used to iluminate the staff halt. The shed is to the left with the colliery branch disappearing into the distance. The mainlines are to the right, the signals have yet to be powered up.

Like the station platform light.
How do you intend to control your signals?
I am using the Heathcote Electronics system which is very good with 4 aspect signals.
