Passing the loading gauge on Polbrook Gurney Colliery. I used code 55 rail here for that lightweight industrial look. Filing the point switch blades takes moments with such fine profile rail. Note one of my ‘budget’ yard lamps. Bbq skewer, bent nail with a slice of plastic tube. 5 mins work. Bamboo blinds make an inexpensive source of fine bamboo otherwise, the lean-to was made from such. Scale OO 1/76.

Model railway commission update:  I picked up the photo printed backscene a short while ago (from AJ Signs in Guildford). It is intentionally over sized to allow me to trim 3 or 4 cm off the base so it looks right from just above track level. It is simply inserted in to the diorama case temporarily for this photo. Scenic work will hide the transition from 2D to 3D. The backscene is printed on to matt laminated sticky backed plastic, which in turn will be stuck in to card to allow for curved corners. I hope to complete this little layout very shortly. More updates soon.

Gone but not forgotten. The demise of the deep shaft #coalmine #colliery - the shadow of a model on one of my #modelrailway s.

Further progress with my current commission. The layout is now fully operational with electric point control. LED lighting was added this afternoon. Next; scenery and backscene.
