I would go with the 'browny green' you mentioned in your last post, you can mix the paint or paint over it again unti your happy with the colour

One house move later and this is still my main layout - the others are awaiting me making our loft habitable. Since the last post I've added a few details including figures, some yard detritus and drystone walls. These are made using a tip from one of the magazines which featured an article about an N gauge layout of the area around Ribblehead. Since almost every magazine has featured one of these in the past couple of years I can't remember which it was, but the idea was to make drystone walls using budgie grit glued to coffee stirrers. I think it looks fairly good.

I'd be grateful for some inspiration about what other sort of stuff to put in the yard, I'm at a bit of a loss about how to detail that space. I forgot to get the road vehicles out for these shots unfortunately.

Here's some photos of the pannier shunting the yard, preparing a train for the J39 to collect.

Some lovely photos there. The backscene ties it all in nicely! I would enjoy a few more overall shots if you ever get the chance.
