Andy,

No problem with constructive criticism. Very Happy

Actually, can I ask you for some local observations? In these industrial areas that I am trying to represent, what sort of fences/boundary demarcations are typical? Metal fences, hedges, walls?

Cheers

steve

Had a very pleasant day out with the layout at Thirsk show today, its fourth outing.

I have made a modification to the sector plate and power carrying operation. Instead of the two sliding pins for power connection and location, (There is no power to the sector plate except when the pins are in place) I have soldered in a flying lead from one rail to the main power using a small plug and socket. So now I only need to use one sliding pin. This makes life a lot simpler and also makes for quicker swaps between lines.

I think I'll be doing the same for Duncan's Mine 2 when it gets built.

The tank farm is currently without a fence, as I've not been happy with any of the possible options I've seen available. It does need something as it isn't really prototypical without one.

I was pondering the problem when I had an inspiration. I decided to have a scene whereby a new fence was being built. It will have a couple of posts already planted, a pile ready to erect and a roll of fencing. Around it will be a couple of arbeiter and scabby van for their kit.

Pics to follow.

What an excellent suggestion; clever sideways thinking, too.
