While I won't be going back into history to explain how I built my layout of many versions ( it can be found in YMR), these are some of the buildings I have done over the last 12 months or so.
Designed to fit into unusual locations, they are many angled, constructed with card, balsa and various printed papers and in some cases Windows by  Scalescenes & Model Builder.

Thanks for posting these Sol, I love the way you have adapted the buildings to fit the odd spaces just as happens in real life, so bringing a touch of realism and uniqueness to your layout   :thumbs:
Cheers

Keep em comming Sol, as Matt said, I love the way you adapt the buildings to suit the layout, rather than modifying the layout to suit.

Lovely work.

Paul

This is how the D&S works to all stations - a point to point layout



Stations with a yellow background are visible &  have buildings, etc so the crew have somewhere to shunt into.
Names in Italics are storage - some are hidden.

To fit this into my space, I have had to incorporate gradients & diamonds. By cunning use of turnouts at Anstey Jn , I do have a continuous run available if needed.

Terrific stuff Sol and for the benifit of members who have not seen the whole layout and it's progress, it can be viewed on YMRC. Well worth the visit.

What's the plans going forward now Sol. What's on the bench ?

Cheers

Toto

Looking forward to how you detail your Metcalfe station building. All the other buildings have come up trumps. Great work. :thumbs:

Hi Ron

As Gormo says, that colour combination works really well.

It's surprising how with just a wrap of brick paper and the Quoins on each corner the difference that can be achieved.

for those not familiar with the Sol's Devan & Summersett, a very pleaseurable read can be found at

YMRC - Devan and Summersett V4
