Managed to progress a little further with my diorama yesterday. The ballasting was completed and I’m happy with the way it’s turning out.
The ballast will be toned down to replicate a typical working siding.

Will be interested to see the toned down ballast as I’m about to start that stage myself.

Hi progress is going nicely with my diorama build. Ballasting has been toned down with a mix of weathering powders, which has had the affect I wanted to achieve.
Gorse bushes have been added around the back and side of the lamp hut. An old oil drum has been added and weathered.
Hopefully I can add the static grass and the odd gorse bush as this is where a trainspotter will be situated.
Here is a progress picture..
