Nicks workshop mutterings

Various railway orientated modelling projects in my new workshop/railway room.

Tinworthy progress report

It seems a long time since I reported any progress but I am still here!

Firstly I have been working on the small buildings at the back of the yard and the surrounding ground works. These buildings hide point motors.

The green storage sheds are based on one of the photos I have of Tavistock and are constructed of scribed card. The roof is corrugated iron using sheets of rolled foil from Eastwell Iron Works. The stables are based on the ones at Minehead and the brickwork is embossed card sheet from Howards Scenics. The other storage shed is one I inherited from the old Eggesford layout.
This is a motor shed built again in card with a similar corrugated iron roof. This is based on a drawing in Adrian Vaughan’s Great Western Architecture.

There is still a lot of detailing to be done to the ground work as well as trees and a painted backscene.

Secondly I have been working on the end of the Down platform where I have built the signal box and installed a water crane. This an old 3mm scale Mikes Models casting.

That’s all for now folks!
