I like the dock wall created from old track bed - very effective - needs a bit of seaweed hanging from it? :lol:
Stop giving me more work to do BB. :lol:

A serious question: Why does nobody depicting railways in Britain ever (I've never seen it) show puddles down the side or roads or on roads/tracks by the side of lines as if it has been raining? Unless it is the height of summer there's usually somewhere that still has a puddle!

It's the one thing that would improve your layout, excellent though it is!

Thanks for prompting me. :)

It has crossed my mind, plus rain. Clarence Dock is the candidate.

I had a bit on my old layout where the water tower had leaked. Two bloked in wellies trying to clear it.

The first layout containing rain puddles I've seen!

Funny you should mention puddles. Have just built baseboards for a small shunting layout. I then put on my creative hat and painted/chalked a miserable grey November sky. The intention is to portray a run down engineering works/wagon repair shop and the air of dereliction will hopefully be helped along by the weather and the puddles! I too have never seen puddles portrayed - it’s often summer with summery weather to match.
