Did a bit more this afternoon.

Pic 1. Roof added. In the bottom left hand corner I have added a patch work repair to the roof as I remember that it always leaked on the welder when it rained! He used very colourful and very load language when it did!
Image

Pic 2. Rear ground view.
Image

Pic 3. Front view. I have added some paint to the brickwork design to see how it will look when finished.

I assume you mean the pattern on the first pic of the last post! :?
It's actually a brick pattern using different coloured bricks. If you go back though the thread (page 39) you will find a pic of the real factory that this model is based on.
I intend to modify the pattern by having it made from blue and red bricks.

From start of building shed to now 2 years.
Next project is to finish the depot long term storage siding that will run down the side of the depot office block.
Then more buildings etc and at some point the fiddle yard.
I only have two trains at present - a 9 nine coach Mrk 1 set and a 21 waggon HSE goods train. So no real need for a fiddle yard at the moment.
