Just been reading the newest blog-posting about the FC Pampa & Fernandez, regarding Superquick paper tiles and slates. Looks like I'll need to do something similar on the engine shed roof at Salo ...

Several tidy-up jobs got done yesterday. The goods office was finished off and stuck in place. The story is that the office was originally in part of the main structure, but as traffic grew they had t ...

Some work in progress. The goods shed is getting an office, and the policeman's shelter is taking shape. In the background is the new coaling stage.

The layout's first show is three weeks away, so I need to get on - despite there being rather too many other distractions and appointments in the diary. The small huts and structures are coming along ...

Did a little work on the second figure, which looks as if it will be a slightly older person. Also managed to push the bottom of the skirt of the first figure up a bit to make her less tall. However t ...

Had an unexpected extra half hour, and thought I'd experiment with making a figure. It's turning out rather better than expected, so far.....

Panel wiring is nearly complete, and quite a spaghetti bowl as the switches are closer together than usual.

Meanwhile I've started on some of the scenic details. The Ridley building now has a boile ...

Looking at the Cuban 3ft gauge locos reminded me of my G scale models. A shame the layout only existed for two years, but it was fun while it lasted and was capable of operation by a team, which was t ...

The past few days has been mostly spent on the wiring connections below the control panel, but I've also made the panel itself. The plug, which carries power ...

The back-scenes have now been screwed in place, during which a little damage occurred which has been repainted. A good deal of fencing has been installed - a mixture of dark brown and unpainted white ...

Had a little spare time this afternoon and re-designed the Ridley warehouse. It is now a single storey with two gable ends facing the track. With a connecting roof at right angles between the gables, ...
