I have been working on a water tower over the past few days and have it at a stage when it is ready to be planted on the layout, near the pond.

That water tower looks excellent :D

Also this pictures looks so good, makes the layout look much bigger!

Blimey Stig must be heavy... that truck almost looks like it is bending down in the middle! You must have good lighting in that shed as 2244 looks like it is bathed in brilliant sunshine; a rather splendid picture if I might say so.

Cheers,

Stuart

There has not been much action on the layout lately, and the locos have been sitting idle in the yard....

Hi Olly,

They may be sat idle but they do look great.

They aren't out on strike again are they........More pay for the under valued workers...... :D

Catch you later,
Mike.

Those front end photos of the Class 25 are very useful. I can now see where to put all my detailing parts! :)

Still lots to do with it, but should end up as an improvement.

Thanks

Hi Olly. I'm new to nrm site & I have to say your layout is amazing. So much detail & realism. Love the engine shed scene looks really authentic with grass & shrubs growing between the rails etc. also love your pond/lake. Don't know if this has been asked before but how did you get the water so realistic? Im looking to make a river on my layout & would like some pointers on how you made your water.
Keep up the good work, inspiring stuff

Cheers keith

Thank you, Keith.

The water is a resin called "floor fix" that is used to bond the floor of caravans with a little watercolour mixed in to tint the water. I like it because it goes off very quickly. I am sure that other resins would have the same effect. I have used it in a number of places:

Under the water tower:

In the main water tower:

and in the pond:

Here are some more randon recent photos:

Many thanks again.
