Searching for "Lima oil storage" brings up two adverts, one is yours the other is someone selling one of them 99p. Seems it is working fine.

If you're looking for the type of buildings that seem to populate the edges of our towns these days, 'Pikestuff' make a range that might be suitable. Not sure if they're any good, but they look OK to me.

Hi Martyn00,
That looks good, always have a few learning moments, I hope you remember them all. I forget and the second time think ... 'Oh why didn't I remember that'. When the ballast is laid around that painted track it'll look very good.
I see the path became overgrown !

yeah the path was one of the mistakes i should have put that down after i finnished the scatters. but the biggest mistake was me not useing neat pva on the underbrush.i bumped into the layout this morning and most of it fell of doh.so ive got it all off again.i will try again when im back from the hospital.im not realy sure im up to this modeling lark

hi guys my no name layout has bit the dust.to be honest i rushed ito the whole hobby knowing nothing about it.ive decided to scrap this layout completley and start again.the new layout will be 9ftx18ins wall mounted like a shelf and i can fit a 3ftx18ins shelf on both ends.i will try to get a drawing of my baseboard plan over the weekend.another reason for this decision is the room factor.im hoping to get all the wood for the frame this week and im going to take my time on this one its pointless otherwise.it was my birthday on the 26th and i had some nice presents of the wife and kids

presents

i was chuffed when i got these.ive also deided to sell/swap some of my other wagons as im after modern ish wagons
