I have been busy working on my layout. It makes a change.

Below is a picture of my ratio container crane wich is 99% constructed. I just need to spray it and add the wheels.

I also constructed my second platform and have covered the lower parts of both platforms in the NRM brick pattern. I think It looks good. Just need to paint the platform tops grey/black and paint the edges white.

I'm rather jealous, we were going past Bescot tuther day and I wondered about a little layout with an 08 and a 37, and some container thingies... :idea:

The container crane looks good, and the platforms are coming on well too 8)

Nice to see some progress Bossman.

A couple of things I'd like to note, the second of which is intended as constructive criticism.

Firstly I'm glad to see Great Western stock making an appearance. That isn't something I expected ;)

Second..

That footbridge is far too tall.. It's intended to be tall enough to clear the tracks when stood at 'ground level' so it looks slightly odd when stood on a platform.

Some minor (or major) surgery should sort that.. Along with a new paint job and some weathering it'll look nice.

I was aware of the bridge. I did think about chopping it but I might get a new bridge for the platforms and use the green one else where. Untill I deside I will leave it how it is.

Looking good Simon

I know where both of you are coming from regarding the bridge, I have had a similar dilemma in the past
