Getting the engine facilities tidy

I have spent the last week working on the goods yard and engine shed. The whole area is now covered in cinders and the facilities are now in place, as you can see.

Here is a close up of the Water crane, the coaling station and the coal staithes.

Someday, I am going to have to put a nice facia board along the front there.

As you can see, the retaining wall is all in place. To remind you, this was all scratch built from some foam board, plastic embossed card, a lot of glue and time. My next job is to extend the retaining wall with a wooden fence. This will come further along and then turn right and come across to the main track to provide an entrance to the yard. Lots of use for the stirring sticks that i get from Isaac's down on the Waterfront!
