Well done Brightonman that feels typically Southern allready. Reminds me very much of Waterloo East.

Thanks Dublo. I thought the same when I saw the kit. I have no idea what station Scalescenes based this on, but it does have that Southern feel about it.
Progress has been swift on this model due to me being rained off work for two days and my other half being away on business - while the cat's away and all that. The main building is pretty much complete, just needs the chimneys fitting. I will be using cast chimney pots rather than the rolled-up card method, which I've never liked. I have added interior detail and lights to the waiting room and the porters room. In the pics it has just been plonked roughly where it will eventually sit.

While looking back through this thread the other day, I noticed that it has been 11 months since I did any work on the large factory building - talk about getting distracted! So, after evicting a spider who had taken up residence on the ground floor, I got on with the north-light roof. A very time consuming business. For some reason my printer refused to print the chimney cover layers so I transferred the page to my partners computer and printed it from there - and of course (sod's law) it came out with the bricks the wrong colour. I'll just say the chimney was a later addition to the building :wink: Still a few bits to do on the low-relief section put pretty much finished at last. The lights are pound shop battery powered LED's.

So finally, after what seems like an age, all the main trackwork has been laid and the droppers and point wiring installed ready for wiring the whole thing up. Still a bit of work to do on the fiddleyards but they are very basic and won't take much time at all. Also the station bridge is nearing completion.

Retaining wall is now finished, and work has started on the station building. The old Hornby coach is my clearance tester.

Been getting distracted again. I decided that I wanted a bus stop outside the station and quite wide pavements. After laying the road & pavements, there was quite a big area of pavement crying out for some sort of building.

A few ideas sprang to mind (taxi office, news kiosk etc) then I remembered that ages ago I downloaded a freebie kit from Kingsway. This was a kit for a Busman's Shelter/public toilet from Muswell Hill in North London. This is quite an interesting hexagonal shaped building, something a bit different. I printed out the sheets just to check the dimensions, got carried away and ended up building the thing (like I say, distracted again!)
In comparison to Scalescenes, I find Kingsway kits quite difficult to do a good job on. For example the window & door openings (including any curves/arches) have to be cut from 2mm card - not easy. The roof was the main hurdle. The roof itself is one piece which is meant to be folded to shape and attached to formers, but try as I might I could not get it to sit properly. In the end I resorted to cutting it into sections and sticking them on individually. I didn't like the printed tile surface so, using the tiles from a Scalescenes terraced house kit, I laid tiles in overlaid strips which I think gives a much better appearance.

The finished model. I did consider replacing the printed windows with glazing, but thought better of it.

And in place on the layout.

latest track plan looks like it works really well imo, and everything is looking really great
