    Significant progress on the Station and Town. @gormo I repurposed some old Triang/Hornby platforms they still need some weathering but amazing how they can be transformed.

    Gormo, the pavers came from ScaleModelScenery. I'm pretty happy with them, now I just need Metcalfe to start shipping again so I can add some platform canopies, I did see your video on scratch building some, but time is not on my side right now... On another note: Do you have any thoughts on making a plowed field - I have a couple of Fowler Plowing engines.... I'm going to try corrugated cardboard, and some brown scatter.

    Finished up the Private Owner wagons display - need to do a little more sorting but generally they look good! 9C72534C-5D86-4DF3-9F5E-239A987731FE.jpeg D4E9ABD6-6FCD-490A-A31C-8D309706F938.jpeg

    G`day Steve,
    The pavers look really good. I still have some Scalescenes pavers that Gary gave me and I have not got around to using them yet......eventually I will use them.
    I think corrugated card would be a good choice, especially if you can add your scenic materials in such a way as to make it look a little less regular.

    After some googling on ideas I used a piece of carpet, scattered with some kitchen herbs. It did work really well!

    Next stage progress - need some horses and I can’t find the ones I know I have stashed somewhere. Of course the day after amazon delivers some is when they will “magically” appear! (Cows are missing too) D4F9CC90-1BBB-46C9-B75A-D08D4381D3C5.jpeg CD771A4A-B0FD-45E4-98A0-97E163C537AE.jpeg 6E98314D-5187-473E-B8A5-9D18D2C40FB9.jpeg

    Just realized I Haven’t posted in a while. Been busy laying more track on the DCC circuit and wiring same. Added some new rolling stock DCC installed or ready. Got my first few sound chips. Managed to short everything out with a brand new but “dodgy” Hornby Princess that came DCC installed. Turned out to be bad wiring internally to the lit firebox. Finally got some Metcalfe kits so got more done on the station and town this last couple of weeks. Hid the poor underpass on the old Triang platforms with nice Metcalfe kit. Also added a Garage/petrol station. Have more kits on order to complete the town.

    Been wanting to do something to these old Hornby “teaks” to try and make them AC3BA27A-C80B-4BB5-B8FC-714AF7AC73AA.jpeg A250D0E5-7E3A-4C1D-BD91-5E338199AFE4.jpeg A119E445-1B0A-4037-BE35-D758BD76A455.jpeg look less plasticy for a while - seen some different suggestions, but I found this wood stain pen, and decided to give it a go - to me they look awesome.
