Maybe next time it would be interesting to get a few views from the operator's perspective?
I need to do a little tidying up first! Too many boxes of 'stuff' but thanks for the comments!
And cheers JohnN - static grass does seem to get some good effects, but get everywhere!
On to an update - the buffer has been completed and placed - loks like it is hanging off the end of the board, but there is about a centimeter spare to play with.
After building up a base layer, I started to add bushes and trees. The trees are woodland scenic armatures with different applications of polyfiber and flock, as well as the Woodland scenic foliage. The shrubs are lichen sprayed with hairspray and have some foliage attached as well as a puff of static grass and a sprinkle of fine flock - burnt grass and earth. I am trying to give the impression of some overgrown vegetation as this part of the line has started to become more rundown and disused. The mainline is fine, but the branchline and engine house is starting to look neglected.
A slightly blurred picture of an autocoach used alot on this line, though it reallly should be BR Red and weathered.
I still have more detailing to do including some scrap and junk - not too much as there is still some pride!
and lastly an overview -
On the the 'to do' list is to sort out the running of my Stanier 4MT which needs some work as well as give the track a good cleaning. I also need to think about chipping some other locos (and even something new!)
