I've got a bit more ballasting to do and i've got to make and cover a small grassy area near the carriage shed. The layout won't look amazing but it'll be 'passable'. Will give me plenty of time to get it looking tip-top in time for the big show in september.

I've been playing with my Modroc :D

Tonight i've got the new mound made around the yard, this is currently drying but come morning it'll have the base coat of brown.

Amazingly with this covering a lot of bare board it makes the layout seem less unfinished in an instant!

Work continues!

With the exhibition getting ever closer all my spare time is being put into the layout. Tonight i've got the hill's painted (Maunsell Green) and got the majority of the ballast in this yard done.

Also painted and scattered a random patch down by the carriage shed.

Tomorrow is my day off, and last full day of working on the layout. So it'll be full systems go, leaving Thursday evening to have a massive test session!

Cheers Simon, I'll commence testing tomorrow after today's work has dried.

Well it's pretty much done, apart from testing and adding a few tiny details.

The siding at the bottom right of the board seems to blend into the ballast, is this a disused siding? :)
I Like Percy :D

Hey Steve, the siding is intended to be a storage line/a line a low-loader can back onto. Eventually i'll get around to blending it in abit more.
