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!

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
