Having got my new odds and sods I've made a start on the yard crane and altered a telegraph pole as planned. Both can be seen unpainted but in place in the photo. I've also stuck a couple of signs on the station building.

Hi there CO!

Glad to see that lovely little station of yours is developing nicely :wink:

The crane will look great there when it's painted. Also glad to see that your passengers know where they're alighting now! :)

Cheers mate

Thanks again for all your kind comments. Thought I'd give you a quick update.

The telegraph pole is now painted and permanently fixed in place (barring clumsiness!!). The yard crane has had an initial coat of paint, but needs another coat, then a bit of strategic rust, oh and for the hook and cable to be attached.

See what you think, Gowrie shunts the yard.

The crane is finished and in place, and it actually swivels too. The picture shows the crane hovering over my WW1 E class wagon, which is in turn being shunted by my shiny new OBB tank engine.

The exhaust on my car decided to disintegrate on the way back from a trip to the Bluebell Railway at the weekend (my Dad was on a footplate experience day driving Stepney up and down at Horsted Keynes), so today while the exhaust was being replaced I had a wander into town and inevitably ended up in Antics. I was thinking about general clutter for the yard, and a signal box too. The former I was able to satisfy with some Scaledale crates, and I was hoping to get some appropriate plasticard for the later. Disappointingly they didn't have any plasticard... but then I spotted a Wills ground-level signal box, and had an idea for a kit-bash, as I reckon that with a bit of hacking, another NWNGR window frame etch from Worsley Works, and the addition of a stone base (which could come from bits of my water tower that didn't get used previously) that it could be just the thing!
