Time for a long overdue update...
Right, to start with, scenery has progressed, with the addition of yet more spearhead fencing, a new station building, GWR platform benches, development of the town and new platform lamp posts, firstly, here is a shot of said lamp posts soon after installation:
These are Ratio Kits, with the one arm chopped off, and weathered with a mix of brown paints, although of Southern Region origin, these could also be seen on the Western, and until recently, resided at Bridgnorth on the SVR.
A Public house has also been bought and constructed, this is a Metcalfe coaching inn kit, any ideas on what to call it? I want a witty yet subtle name for it
More stock has been bought, including a job lot of stuff that requires a little TLC, included in this was a Replica Modified Hall, this was soon re-lettered and Re-named to 6960 Raveningham Hall, and for an old loco, runs like a dream
Right, onto the layout, the pub has been placed in the one corner;
The area behind the first pullman coach will be supplemented by a War Memorial or Fountain, just to fill in the gap, and the road surface will be dulled down with matt varnish to represent tarmac.
And an overall view of the layout:
showing the grassy bank behind the signal-box, future picnic area?
To finish off;
The station now beholds a running-in board, whilst 6960 awaits departure...
