I've been using the Woodland Scenics Fine-Leaf foliage. It looks pretty good - there are branches and small trunks to the bushes and mini-trees. It comes in a clump and needs breaking down, but the affect is good. Nasty crease in the backscene :evil:

"I just followed the SatNav"!! The 21st Century comes to Wykeham :shock: (For one day only :lol: ).

The business I worked for joined the DX in its infancy in 1975 when the UK had been going through a series of postal strike. I got given this vehicle when I attended a black-tie dinner in Lincoln's Inn, to, at the time, celebrate the DX's forty years in business in the UK. I wonder whether I will be invited to the fiftieth?

One does not question such errors. Just admire the modelling. :)

Now if it was a remote control vehicle! Would it be a 783 point turn or some 'acey reversing'?

Just an aside. Here, up north, we had a Marshall Snelgrove Department Store. I was looking for the 'Marshall' :)

Barry,

I will pass on the HGV - looks great but I prefer your layout in the era that is intended....... On that respect, I thought the foliage you posted a few days ago look great and very life like......I am sure however if you could move the tree to the left a little, it would do a wonderful job of hiding the back scene crease, or perhaps you could simply add another tree or large bush.

Would welcome your inputs to my earlier platform surface post, as I seem recall your platforms to be particularly good.

Best regards - Richard

Its arrived :D - ordered on the 10th January 2018. One advantage of pre-ordering is that I got it at the 2018 price.
