At last, the back-scene is starting to take shape. It was a bit of a search as I wanted at least one street view taken from the top of a hill, so as to give the impression that the station is on the e ...

Finally unable to put off THAT MOMENT any longer; time to re-test the track wiring and points following the ballasting, done last week. Two points were not conducting the current between the point bl ...

The new platforms and loading dock area is nearing completion. I managed to incorporate the cattle dock from Great Sutton, and it now has a horse-landing area, as well as an end-loading capability. I' ...

Quite a bit of paint has been flying about, recently, as the ballast has been toned down a bit and finally looks as if it all belongs to the same railway company. It also took three goes to get the pl ...

Good luck with the show, Simon. Perhaps some pictures, afterwards?

Has anyone seen any of the last 3 editions of RMF in 2017? Some time ago they asked if they could re-use a Continental Modeller piece about Puerto Paseo and indicated a proposed publication date late ...

Ballasting finished, thank goodness, the flangeways cleared of any excess stones, and any sticky point blades unstuck. Now the track just needs a little painting to pull it all together, plus an elec ...

Not a pretty sight, yet, but at least I got to New Year with the ballasting (almost) done. There's still some tidying up to do as I had to mix three colours of ballast in both OO and N gauge grades.

Just got back to modelling work after an enforced break of several weeks. Today saw the first coat of glue on the ballast "undercoat". As the ballast has to come above the sleepers I find it ...

Following this with interest. Reminds me of the Christmas village I had as a kid. No train, though - Hornby tinplate would never have fitted; the houses were made of plaster and were roughly N gauge. ...

This is almost the whole of Stoney End, my last attempt at 009, back in the 1970s. The track plan was an oval with hidden sidings under the hill on the rig ...
