Thank you for your kind words, fourtytwo.

To get to where I am with the scenery I have made a million and one mistakes; and still making them. Not only that it has taken time.

It was when I sat down and wrote a list of what I actually wanted on the layout that it came together. I like the overgrown look reminding me of standing waist high in long grass watching trains. Being on a train near Newburgh, Fife and tree branches smacking the windows as we passed. Nature fighting back and in cases winning. Fences non-existent at Newton Hall, Durham having a sandwich as trains passed. (A metal fence there now :evil: )

Seeing what I see and not what I thought I saw. The sky is very rarely blue. Tree leaves are different colours. There are 'fifty shades of green'.

As for the running of the layout; it is fun. I have five grandchildren and all want to operate it when they visit. It has a serious side and at times it is operated as such. Then everything has a reason to be where it is and runs through scenery to get from A to B - and back. It is a steam locomotive running layout set in 1914/1919 or diesel locomotives in 1970(ish). Hence I have two threads for the same layout. Great fun and keeping it that way.

Any excuse for Matt Summers to stop work on tidying up the garden as he watches the Down Postal.

A 45t crane languishes in the yard. It is from the Austrian maker Kleinbahn.

I like the breakdown crane - looks perfectly in place in that setting.
Tomorrow will be a good day!

Thanks BB. As I say, it is made by Kleinbahn. Being HO scale it does not overpower the scene imo. A lovely runner as well.

Just send that languishing crane over here, to Henley. Plenty of wrecks for it to mop up. :)

Sorry Chops, too much work for the crane to do here. :)

Great close in shots. The motorman looks as though he could reach over to Julia's Bakery and grab a scone. An alternate universe.
