well been building the back of the shed(current) on the base boards got the Bridge sorted and i have done some of the embankment just got to do the plastering it in bit and the scenic. Whilst on my travels i called in a shop in Buxton and bought another 8F number 48151. I now have 2 of these so once i have done, It should look good.

Also people who view these threads, It would be nice to have some feed back from others on here as well!

Here is the bridge i have made a while ago for my layout. It is a GCR kit from Prototype models.

Hi Ian

I must say that station front is really great so far. I look forward to the details being added in due course.

The bridge looks pretty good too, though I was wondering if there's any chance of a view from the side, i.e as if from the road

Cheers mate
