Those shed shots are very atmospheric, Steve.
Maple road is to welcome a very special guest next week before it goes off to its new home. So I’ve been getting my dads locos into a more workaday appearance. I’ve also had a go at my Hall as well.
Manky mogul! Another of my dads locos getting some dirt, how do you want it I asked? Filthy he said! Coal will be added tomorrow.
Lovely weathering, Steve.
The shed foreman at Maple Road was quite excited to see two wagon loads of welsh steam coal arrive on the shed, beats that Northern Snap & Crackle they’ve been getting lately.
5904’s crew are in place on the footplate, these have migrated over from 5099 as she will be getting a repaint later this year.
My dads panniers now looking a little more workaday
Maple Road shed set up in the sun for its 15 mins of fame today. It will shortly be off to its new owner.
Another batch of MBR trees arrived today to thicken up the Birch Forrest plus a few spruce,
I’ve got another two tall spruce on order from GModelScene and that should just about complete this section.
Out in the natural light for a better view of the new trees, digital photography doesn’t like reds in certain lights and the indoor shots I did last made the Scott’s pines look way to bright! , There is a nice picture of Sonning in a new book I have that shows a much coarser ballast in the drainage channels so I’ve replicated that with some chunky ballast.
Another book made up, It’s a nice way to keep a record of my work especially after the layouts have gone to their new homes
I’ve been adding Fox BR coach roundels to my Dapol MK1’s
plus this little wagon arrived today a LTD from Tower models and a must have as it’s from my own town. Its currently being distressed before I add BR numbers.
Stressing and ageing underway
It's quite normal. I get this way when using some transfers..
That’s the last shots from Maple Road, see it in a future article in Model Rail
As I don’t need the GW coaling stage on Marches Road midland I’ll make up a 6’ x 2’ diorama, I can use the other GW buildings I have left over as well.
A sheet of Ply and some 2 x 1 and we have a diorama underway.
First pit cut in and I’ve found some LCut arches I had from the original Marches road. I think I will use these but maybe reduce the height a little.
Making up some retaining walls, I want to avoid a hard right angle here, this will be filled with polystyrene and shaped with plenty of bushes and trees added.
