track plan is going to be a single track for now, but with space for the sidings etc as and when points are sorted.
Proposed plan is now to build it as if the station had not been demolished and the SVR had continued down the line as a heritage line.
Signal Box, Station Building(thank you Doug) all ready .
No pictures at the moment because a box of bits does not really show where I am currently am at :( plus I really need to do some painting but the weather is not good for spraying stuff in primer outside-(wet, windy, and cold) :roll:

First bits now in primer,about 10 more bits to do, but they need to go in the ultrasonic cleaner first.
Every model I paint gets a coat of Halford's grey Primer regardless. :D
Guess what I shall be doing over xmas if I can prime the last 10 bits.

Did you leave a glass of milk out for Santa last night? Looks like he did visit and stop for a slurp! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Damn! The date on the photos shoots my comical suggestion down in flames.....unless Santa visited early, or the date's wrong on your camera. :roll: :roll:


And do I recognise one or two of those buildings? ;)

First 2 pictures were indeed mainly your excellent products in primer.
in the other pictures the small building is a modified Shapeways print from another forum member better known for his landrovers and nuclear flask wagons.
Dates on camera are fine :roll:

Guess who screwed up. :roll:
Both platforms are meant to be the same length! Unfortunately I have superglued the sections together so will have to order more pieces.( Doug waiting to see what bits I shall be ordering after the new year) :lol:

Things not going quite to plan- had to have a day off modelling today due to lack of feeling/movement in hands.
Appointment with the quack on Thursday but hope to do something before then.
