    Another batch of MBR trees arrived today to thicken up the Birch Forrest plus a few spruce,
    I’ve got another two tall spruce on order from GModelScene and that should just about complete this section. 2F6368A3-0E02-4AD3-A1B2-1205B382ACD9.jpeg E0AC1020-FCD7-4679-AACD-433EDF538857.jpeg 781442D1-F67D-49E5-A31F-7D1078B9928D.jpeg

    Photography is so much better in natural light and the reds look a million times better

    I’ve also added some coarser ballast in the drainage channels as I’ve just come across a nice picture of the prototype that shows this

    A nice finishing touch Steve, drainage channels set into the batter slope are often overlooked in modelling.:tophat::tophat::tophat::tophat:

    This little wagon arrived today a LTD from Tower models, Totally out of Era for me but it’s from my home town so why not, it’s currently being distressed so it won’t look out of place in my goods train.

    The Dapol Mark 1 looks amazing, I'd say probably the best on the market right now

    Yes indeed and how good would it be also if they did some Period 3 LMS or Porthole stock

    Porthole stock would be superb or Period 3 and I guess that would give more livery options so from a selling perspective a better option.

    I've often wondered why Porthole stock hasn't been done before... I've even seen pictures of LMS Period 3 stock in Rail Blue with Rail Grey... I know a few Hawksworth coaches were so treated and what a talking point that would make running on a good size layout.

    I dunno about the wagon getting distressed, I think it should be positively worried :avatar:, hopefully getting Picture of the Week will give it some peace of mind.

    Congrats on another superb bit of modelling
