The Evening Star belongs to My Friend Stan, but I'm happy to have it grace my layout, especially with the Flying Scotsman in attendance. In the first photo, people seem to be milling around. Perhaps there's a delay.

It is nice (and different) running other peoples' rolling stock.

Carry on the good work.

I hope that the work is good, Glencairn, and I certainly plan to 'Stay Calm and Carry On'.

I wonder if those guys will even finish the Bridge to Nowhere.

Is that gent in the bowler hat having a wee behind the water tower?

No, just a chat. What a relief.

But the railwayman seems to being giving some passengers a hand-bagging about the trolley!

Scenes from Shankly Gerrard Street

The garage in the second photo is an original Airfix kit from the 1970s. It only took me 45 years to build ( no rush). The Shell sign is a 1970s Lego piece. I think that it must have buckled whilst in storage for all those years. I could put it in boiling water and try to carefully straighten it out, but I suspect that I would end up with it in two pieces, which would hardly be an improvement. The snow plough is placed to conceal the join between the baseboard and the (cardboard) road coming down from the road bridge.

I've been using my time off work due to the lockdown to work on some scenic features. I tend to work on several things at once rather than the more logical way of concerntrating on one at a time. It takes much longerto get a result this way, but it seems to be how I like to work. Hopefully, at least one of these scenic features is getting close to appearing on the layout and being photographed - perhaps by this time next week (famous last words). I wonder how other model railway enthusiasts organise their modelling.

Until my next photographic session, I'll have to post a few slightly older photos like this one.
