    Thanks All.. when the final image first appeared on the screen and I showed the wife, it genuinely brought a tear to my eye.

    looking photo realistic, all I could think of was... I made that!

    I decided to have a little more fun with the virtual world....

    I’ve added some paperwork to the notice board, a comfy chair and some stop blocks for the signal levers.

    that was after I added lighting.

    externally no change. DCD8AAC1-A2D8-47A3-8F52-8E9B789FF1D6.jpeg
    After the stop blocks, I added the signalmans register and also ,although modern) a very appropriate mug for the signalman.

    these last shots were taken in my phone, so are not of the render quality.

    Yes Mr S that is very much more like the pale Eau de Nil green BR used for station interiors in the 1950's which replaced plain 381c 226 Mid Brunswick which the LMS used on the North Stafford section.

    Yes the LMS painted some of their station interiors green and contemporary fashion colour in the 1950's post war Britain was light or bright green with pale cream or yellow. Much as we have today with muted pastel tones matched with a dominant strong colour.

    So as I progressed, feedback from those who knew the Leek box suggested a few bits missing.

    I’d obviously added the chair and the stops for the levers to prevent them being pulled, but apparently I’d done the later LMS ones, not the metal NSR device.

    so it was back to drawing and adding in some more missing details.

    it was also pointed out there was a device above the stairs which I couldn’t really make out on the one B&W photo that showed the most detail till I was advised it was a bell on the bracket which was run by the signalman to alert the station staff..

    Back to the drawing board to add some more details...

    Anyway, here we are.. the latest round of the model rendered.. hopefully soon I can print the real thing!

    the signalmans desk, now with train reporting register, bardic (probably a little early for the period I’ve tried to portray) the mug and the phone.

    well ding dong!! The bell, with a little artistic licensing. Can you read the writing on the bell?
