Hi!

just a few photos to show what's been going on recently,
first up, ballasting is done around80%,with just a part in the middle around the points to do and over the far end where other things need to be done first.
second up, i brought some ratio fuel tanks, these went together well and are placed at the front of the layout near my short siding, i have decided that this short siding will be a fuel unloading track big enough for 2 TTA wagons (3 without 08), i just need a pump to finish off! i built these tanks to my needs and not placing them side by side, also the pipework is different to the original.
thirdly i cut a piece of board to size and placed it up against the backboard on the far side above my angled arches, this has been covered in grassy/weeds, and bushes,
and last but not least i brought some woodland scenics? grass this comes in a pack where it all is around 6cm long ready for the user to cut, i have been planting this stuff around my short siding buffers, what i have been doing and it works, is place the glue down, then get around 10 strands of the grass (uncut) and place it in the glue all messy directions (just like real grass) then when the glue sets cut the grass to the desired size and keep the rest! this was all done because i done have a grass applicator!

Hi,

This is looking really good. You are making a great job. I like the concrete areas and the weathering on the locos especially.

Good work and keep it up

Thanks

Hi great start to your layout. weathering on locos is great giving good working/used feel. Excellent work on the hardstand. Its such a pain to get right. I used proper cement for mine for the colour.

keep up the good work & all the detailing to come

Bunding is a retaining wall that goes around the tanks, so if the tanks where to burst it would retain the fluid as not too pollute the enviroment. :) wouldnt want you getting in trouble with the enviromental agency or health and safety. :lol:

I have a big tank similar to your 2 with a bund wall going around at my work, if you want pictures for reference just let me know and i will get some for you buddy. :)

i see yes i would be grateful of pictures!


UPDATE

i have been adding greenery to the layout this morning, also got the majority of the remaining ballasting done!, now to do the points ¬_¬ its getting there!

i set up a shopping list of what i need to get
2 x yard lamps (tall)
smaller lamps around shed
lots of leds/resistors
grey paint
sky paint
lighting for the shed
bachmann barrels
freightliner corsa x2
buffer stops x4
4x 8 pin decoders and 2x 21pin decoders!
that will bring the layout to a basic complete stage before going on to add smaller details!

thanks for reading
