update

spent £20 today on pikestuff single road shed some glue & some tubs of paint.

total now £70.10

i have totally ballasted the layout painted all the frame work & the backsides of the backscenes to give it a more finished look i have rusted all the rails & destressed the concrete with a rub on rub off style job with black paint. its looking good i also painted up the fuel pump & the taps etc to go with it.
