Thanks Steve, sounds quite easy when you say it. I'll have to have a bash at this water stuff... I have a potential spot where I could try it out. Oh and I do know Grotland's superb layout; I'm just a bit surprised that it has got down to page 6! Lovely stuff on the willow too! :D

Cheers,

Stuart

Good evening Peeps :D
Time for a quick update............ After what seemed like endless hours making little progress, I have something to post.

- I've planted my willow tree down by the river
- re-painted lily pads
- painted some lily flowers
- fixed down over bridge & retaining walls & added some foliage

DMU108 passes over river
Image

Image

The railings at the end f the platform were made from 0.5mm bell wire soldered together............ sheeesh what a pain that was!!!!!!....... But worth it I think :lol:
Image

Image

Also done some work on the country station (yet to be named) adding fencing & painted footbridge....... this needs a little more work done on the footbridge.

DMU108 in station.
Image

Image

Bus awaiting passengers............ must be leaves on the line again!!!!!!!!!
Image

Class 37 enters station with a rake of marron coaches.
Image

And passes on through

Regards,
Steve

I'm sure I've seen the shopping trolley before but not the whole thread!

I particularly like the bridges, weir, retaining arches and low-level shots.

Some nice cameo's there. I don't know why, but the picture of the bus outside the station is one of my favourites (less is more?) - and the third photo with the home-made soldered railings at the end of the platform, those railings must have been really fiddly, but very effective too!

But definitely a layout of 'many scenes' this one - it seems each angle has a different look and feel :)

Thanks guy for your kind comments.
Thanks Mark, one of the aspects I wanted from the layout, was that it could flow from one scene to another.

With the river scene & bottom layer of detail done for the country station area, I can now progress with scenic detail up the hill which has been looking barren for too long.

Here's a few more photos from the rest of the layout;

Love the photos of the yard and turntable. Looks like 46244 could do with a dustbrush though!

Hi there... Just read your thread right through for the first time. Got to say I am impressed with your level of detailing. Love the road surfaces, the water finishes and the dumped trolley is just sublime... :D
Keep up the good work..
Jas... :D

Thanks for your kind comments Paul.

There's been little progress since my last update. Seems to be a loss of inspiration, railway modellers block :? :lol: :lol: Though this seems to be returning, have been doing some work on it this evening. I should have something worthwhile to post later this week.

Steve
