Many thanks for the compliments. I'll now get on and finish the other carriage - painting the interior is a bit fiddly. :)

Can’t you put some of your little men inside to do it after they’ve finished painting the station.

The soft glow from the carriage makes me want to shrink to 1/87, slip inside, and escape the fog and drizzle whilst sipping hot British tea. I would ride that train just to see where it went.

Then there were two - no passengers yet :o . I used double-sided tape to stick the lights to the roof interior - can be easily removed if necessary.
Sorry about the "grainy" picture - it was dark :lol:

Apology not required that is a tremendous picture. I think it looks just fine sitting at the platform without passenger.

My eyesight gets a bit grainy at night, so I'd say it's exactly as it should be.

The grain has a foggy, misty atmosphere. I wish I could summon it upon request, when doing photography. When the effect does happen, it is an accident of lighting. Two of my favorite model rail photos- one is grainy the other blurred. Couldn't have planned it that way. Back in the old days we used to have f-stops and the like, but even then one had to spend a fortune on film and throw away all the unusable stuff.

Cracking atmospheric shots, just love the three Bulleids on shed. Great scene.
