Hiya,

This is the first board of my little 009 fictional line Whitmore Vale - It is set on the English Welsh border and is a village station - The entire board is either scratchbuilt or heavily altered - except the fencing and the tunnel mouth, track and points. The station building is based on Slinfold Station but i lowered the ceilings slightly and made it out of welsh stone instead. It is all built from plastic sheet .
The engine shed roof isnt yet finished - but i have had a lot of other projects on and havent had the time to do it!!!
I am sorta happy with it i guess - i could have done a little more on the scenics i think and probably will on the next one. I also am not happy with my ballasting i think it looks far too dark !!

Sorry about the darkness of some of the pictures !! next time it is a sunny day i will take some more !!

The Railcar is a scratchbuilt one based loosely on the county Donegal railcars!!





Some people wait for the train.



Little Shunter waits on shed !



Station frontage - dont know why i built it really with so much detail as no one will ever really see it !!



Rabbits at play ( from the Langley Sieries )



The road bridge over the railway



Looking towards the bridge - the signals are a ratio kit heavily altered to fit in with my ideas.



The station Building - I still have to add the awnings but I havent got round to it yet....



The crows sitting in a field - there are many little animal and birds added to the board - Including a badger coming out of his set and a hedgehog hidden in the garden of the station building!!!



A man walking his dog shows some interest at the Yard Railway Gate!!

I am thinking of moving to the ancient hornby system of 1925 which was main supplied 220 - 240 AC voltage through the track. It was banned after 5 years and replaced by 4V................ one way to protect against cat attacks....... in fact probably against anything........................................................................
