Not on a work bench as such, but it is what I am working on at the moment.

After returning to model railways a couple of months ago after a 17 year break, I felt my skill would have improved as I matured like a piece of cheese.

I threw out the gauntlet for help with the design of the layout and got alot of help, I have tweeked it slightly but in essense it's there.

The track is all but layed, and I had to start on the scenery to try my skills......

Any how enough of the waffle, heres some photo's

















Thanks for looking, comments welcome..

You must be quite pleased with the result thus far. I think that's a nice idea to put a bit of scenery in to see how you like it.

Looking good Cap'n,

I like the hedge/overgrowth in front of the LNER/Caley(?!!) tank - very effective.

Very nice indeed Cap'n.

It's amazing how much finer the track looks when it's detailed and the scenic work is definitely something to be proud of. You obviously have green fingers.

Keep up the good work.

Expat.

It's OK - you don't have to - I'm a Southern man!

Well parrakeets have become more or less indigenous down in this part of the UK.

First update....


Adding a retaining wall to the embankment section needs a parapet wall and capping, then the tunnel entrance worked in.

OK thought it was time for another update, I have now done the basic scenics around one of the tunnel mouths.










Thanks for taking time to look

Very good detail there. I think your car may be out of scale slightly!
