You're welcome Gene, I'm forever going through draws and boxes, looking for potential critter bits. I've got quite a bit of the bridge pieces still. So I may well put together a fleet of battery locos.
Here's an overall shot of Critters Bank so far. I've pretty much got the buildings mapped out. House in the left corner and a workshop at the back. In the middle is a shed or boiler house for the workshop.
The contours of the landscape is just about formed. I'm still on the scrounge for soming fluffy for the grassy bank at the front.
The right front of the workshop will be a static display of some wagons and a spare loco. Loading/ unloading.
I'm gonna knock up a back scene using my oil paints, I want this layout to have a Britishy look to it, remind me of the old country.
I made an attempt at some stucco walling for the house. It's the first time I've done it.
I'll do some touching up when I've got around to the roof, windows and door.
Anyway it's good fun to get back into it.
Love to here some of your thoughts or ideas on all this.
Little old lines to somewhere.
