Loving the photos. It looks like you had an enjoyable running session. I find the scenery for Petersdale so well thought out, especially liking the road servicing the far side of the station with the mound in between.

Hi Josh. Thanks for the comments.
With reference to the scenery on PETERSDALE after I'd done the track plan I did a sort of rough 'landscape/scenery' plan.
Roughly positioning the buildings then identify areas that would be fields or rough overgrown areas etc.
As far as actually building up those areas I just did it what I felt like doing adding or taking out trees/bushes etc till I got what I liked.

Astonishing imagery. I can almost smell the tang of coal smoke and grease.
I don't care what they say. I believe in Nessie.

Excellent layout, Pete. The 8F looks ‘at home’.
