    Hi guys,

    Not posted on here for a while so thought I would drop in and let you know what I have been up to.

    Due to constant bad weather I have rebuilt my indoor layout that was designed around my old On30 stock. to reflect the change I made to OO
    The depot.... The main depot is scratch built from plasticard

    The terrace house's... Metcalfe card kits

    And when the sun comes out I still like to give the motors a good airing outside..

    Thanks Ralph.


    A bit more from last nights activities....

    When I started the layout I was concerned that its small size and also the fact I was modelling a maintenance depot would leave the base board looking all railway no scenery. So when the raised area beyond the bridge evolved it gave a chance for some structures to be added.
    The area to the extreme left of the layout beyond the terrace houses has been the latest area of attention.
    The building is a Metclfe kit but drasticly "card-bashed" both tall sections, the mill and warehouse have been lowered by one floor. and the single storey section made from what was left

    The are in front is going to be a court yard / car park and walled off from the terrace back yard, leaving an alley to the terrace yards. (where the skip is)

    Looks good, John. :thumb: I too like the interior shot of the shop, and the warehouse and mill both look nice, but I really like those terrace houses. They're very similar to what I've got planned for a spot on my own layout. Nice work.

    John, northern Europe is definitely not the place to be this so called summer, but your pictures compensate a bit for the bad weather :wave:. You created a lot of great scenes for such a small layout. The terrace houses are beautiful.

    I love the "tromp l'oueille" work on the "far" side of the bridge! Very nicely done!

    How do you like Metcalfe models?
