Hello,
Can you please tell me who's and which brick papers you use.
Regards

Apparently my memory has been degraded - so i am not stupid after all - what a relief!

Hi. All the brickpapers are from the Scalescenes range which can be downloaded and printed out. The exception is the wall around the factory yard which is from Model Railway Scenery.

The Standard Steel works is now well underway, using some of the buildings from the Scalescenes Boxfile kit. The track will be inset, I'm still deciding whether to use card or Das clay for this. Clay would probably be easier as the track is on a curve. Lots of detailing still to do.

It's been quite a while since I've posted on here. Progress on the layout has been slow but a few bits have been done, mainly work on the Standard Steel siding and construction of the signal box. A new addition to the fleet is a Bachmann 416 EMU, weathered by TMC - a lovely model. Here's a couple of general pics showing how things are at the moment

That EMU is tasty :P looking good, I especially like those sections of railings on the stepped levels of the low relief backscene, I'd be well jealous of the view the dwellers of those houses must have had!

Ingenious wrapping that large building around the wall! Disguises it excellently. :D
Thanks

Yep, the best view in town :)

Thanks EndtoEnd. It didn't occur to me until I'd built the front and was thinking of what to use to fill the gap between it and the shops. A flash of inspiration (doesn't happen very often!).

Some views of the signal box. This is a Scalescenes kit with a Wills interior detail set and using the stairs from an old Superquick barn that I had stashed away. The signalman started out as a porter leaning on a broom (from Dart Castings), he's now been promoted and had his broom removed.

Lovely modelling, BrightonMan. I endorse Alex and End2end's comments.
Nice to hear a Porter being promoted. :) Giving him something to do instead of leaning on a broom. :lol:

Thanks Glencairn. I decided that some concrete cable trunking would add a bit of interest between the track and the wall, but after working out that I would need 3 packs of the Wills trunking kit to get the length needed at £5 a pack, I had a rummage through the scrap box to see if there was anything I could use and found these old sprues from various kits.

I cut them into lengths and then scored lines to represent the lids using the squares on my cutting mat as a measure.

A quick wash of thinned black paint and they were ready to go. I think they are probably underscale but I can live with that. I'm happy with the result, and they were free - always a bonus

That cable trunking really is 'on point ' as they say.
