    Berko also do the speed restriction signs in brass fret, Paul. You'll usually find dealers at the shows have them (I'm thinking "York" here).

    I didn't want to say about the colour Steve and half expected an HST to come roaring out from the tunnel :avatar:, the white looks fabulous. I'd love to see another pic of your Brit Lightning against it. The Banner repeater is interesting too.:thumbs::tophat:

    4064B028-99B2-4D4C-8CEF-A1659773F0FE.jpeg Line side equipment boxes have arrived from Peter Clark.
    I’ve made them up and glued in place.
    First pack of ferns are on the way from Noch, my usual supplier only had one pack in stock!
    Hopefully they’ll have more soon.
    The tunnel mouths should be available this weekend so this project is fast nearing completion.
    Magazine photo shoot booked in as well.

    Very nice touch there with the location cabinets Steve, they look suitably battle hardened.:thumbup:

    You know Steve I reckon once the tunnel portal is complete and with the use of suitably defused lighting and some fog to suggest a misty day on the sea wall this scene would happily pass for the real thing. :tophat: I for one cannot wait to see your next diorama project.

    The opposite and familiar 3 stepped tunnel mouth now in place, I’m just waiting for the brick overlays for across the top.
    This stepped design of tunnel mouth is at both Shell and Coryton Cove.
