Hi Stefan!

That's a great looking layout there matey:wink: Layouts n BR blue like yours just fill me with a warm "Ooh, it reminds me of when I was about 4" feeling! Fingers crossed, i'll soon be able to give myself some such treats once I've got mi' ruddy power sorted out!

Cheers fella, look forward to seeing more

Cheers

Tim:)

I like the depot layout.
You should have plenty of fun running loco's in and out!

Been doing a bit more. - I've now changed the MPD to 'concrete', using good old Crunchy Nut cereal boxes and surplus sleepers glued underneath to maintain the height. Next job will be to colour it with some dry powders etc. The cereal boxes have been in the loft for quite a while so hopefully they shouldn't warp due to any changes in humidity!

Nice one - love the rolling stock Stefan. I've recently done the same thing with my depot, only not as neat!

Yeah, wasn't sure about the points, thought I might just ballast those, be much easier!

Aint it just, and yes I'd just ballast the points too.

What colour were you thinking about for the concrete? A rusty brown as used for weathering trains would be a good choice, with oilspill black in appropriate places.
