The Round of Beef Pub Colly Gate, licensee one Harry Vernon Cox 1896-1953. The window being set to low for a Cafe and besides it looks similar to the real pub of that name. The photo is via a phone camera and is not the best quality but its just about OK.

Mike, about the embedded track: Are the stone engraved one by one in the dried plaster or are they from an embossed plastic card ?

It's embossed plasticard from Wills, although 00 it looks about right for 0 gauge.

MIke,
I'm not familiar with Wills embossed plasticard, but for sure it looks good.

A new building for Primrose Hill, the transhipment shed canal to rail for Noah Hingley & Sons. OK, it's no good just saying hey! I've started another building you need a photo,ahem,don't you?
The building is only part built, half a roof, windows only placed in position and the staircase only part complete and just roughly in place on a bodged base:

A bit more work on the transhipment shed, roof unfinished awaiting delivery from Slaters, no downpipes or guttering awaiting delivery of tube and half round styrene. The staircase is still not attached to the main building, but I have fitted the doorknobs and telephone insulators, the wiring will be added later. I have also distressed some of the brick work on the canal side of the building, still lots to do.

"Wiring"...? Are you fitting lighting Mike? ... or did you mean telephone wires?

The telephone wire from the insulators down to the office, none of the buildings will have lights. Embarassed

OK. here's the first rushes of the crossing Keepers building based on the photo in the background. It's a sort of the one at Holly Bank, I thought it slightly different from the norm;)





Still loads to do:)

Just getting to grips with what will be the viewers side of Primrose Hill. Baseboard next, then track laying (already built) and then the buildings finally plonked. Wink
