Happy Christmas. That water in the canal looks very realistic, is it the good old layers of varnish method?

Yes, there base was painted a dark colour then a couple of coats of clear varnish. It currently looks like this:

I need to find a bit of time to finish this end of the layout.

Looks just like I remember Blackie's Brook where it flows into the Tame at Bescot. They reckon that the pollution from Walsall leather working could still be detected when it reached the North Sea.

The board under the window was originally just going to be a link between the two solid walls, but as it’s actually the longest wall I thought that I could turn it into a small yard.

The hard landscaping has been completed, so I now need to plant some vegetation.

Catching up on some threads because of a few personal challenges.

An interesting beginning and like 'Topsy' growing.
I like what I see. Well done.

Some would say that progress has been a bit rocky:

It must be spring time, the vegetation is starting to grow:

I agree with manna but it does seem strange (even though Bufferstop made the very valid point much earlier about scenery rather pre-dating the railway) to see no track.

Looking good. The trees on the backscene are very effective.

Thanks guys.

With the messy stuff on the back done, although there are a few small bits to add, I have moved on to the sidings at the back. They are now laid and wired up so I can run trains again:

It does Geoff, here is a little video of it in action

This is just the sidings at the back of the board, there is a through line to be added to the front.
