Sandy Hills New layout. Sandy Hills is going to be the name of the branch Line Terminus when it is done.
Progress today. Completed the Engine dopot last week and have been working on the Main line and have just finished the first section up to the lifting flap by the room door.

Great progress Sandy - now you have started you won't be able to stop :D
I've reached the age where my train of thought often leaves the station without me.

Progress on the Loco Yard has been slow for verious reasons ... More or less finished except for the TT needs a brick wall + the base needs dirtying up and the track around the sheds need some dirty oily black around the sidings. All the buildings are removable as this is a portable section so I can get to the windows to clean them Any comments welcome.

Apart from it being too clean Sandy, there’s nowt wrong with it at all. I may have moved the brick engine shed a little more to the lift, but then I like a large area in front of the shed for display purposes.

Great progress. Well done. Now let’s have some industrial grime and grot.

Thanks very much for the comments. I have to get some Buffer stops and your right about the grime it does look a bit clinical . I think I should have used a darker Ballast as well which may have looked better. I will try to grime it up using some weathering powder. Or is there a better way to do it. I am planning when funds allow to get another engine shed which is double lenth. So that one is only a stand in.
