Added a little more to the goods yard, and a little weathering to the wagons.  A2D3955C-DE27-444D-97F1-5BC778B5A7AE.jpeg  8A7ED26A-3341-4486-9AF9-985AFC86808E.jpeg  AEFF8FB5-543B-422D-B8DE-07032DFD4B5D.jpeg 

if you decide to weather building ty a thinned black cheap paint and dribble on things like drain pipes, it goes down the pipes like real rain the colour acts in he same was as dirt and accumulate in the crevices., loving your walking boards

Yes sorry i picked up on coronavirus very late December, and realised it had potential, we started looking into preparing ourselves, we have increased our chickens, ducks,bees and goats, all of which need attention every day. We also bought a large poly tunnel and have been growing plans and trying new stuff, like sweetcorn and wheat, as well as the usual potatoes onions carrots tomatoes cucumbers lettuce. Saw mis information, and contradictory, and was tied up in with it, as a couple of the family members are also vulnerable. Luckily our income maker has had a home office for years now, so there was no major changes for us on that front line. But it has either consumed our time or effected how we consume our time, and as a result model railway as much as I love it really could not be prioritised. We are slowly getting our soldiers in a row, and have breathing space for a little more r and r, so I popped back in. As people know I prefer to stick to the arty Farty end of railway. Having learnt to stay well clear of advice that is in any way technical, my other half spent far too much time helping people who failed to follow decent advice, or took part of the advice then could not work out why it did not achieve the promised results. Nope I will happily sit in my little crafting corner. Easily photographed tips give me far less hassle, said it before and say it again Ahjay and his technical team are a god send to many modellers, and they have the patience of Job. I would likely strangle some of the people, who particularly cherry pick elements of advice and then cannot rationalise why it does not work. All power to them.I specifically remember Ahjay and mu other half giving simple advice to a not vert technical question, and someone coming along and advising it was cheaper to use the wrong wire and avoid the rampage rating, the person needing the advice immediately said he liked the saving money and would go that route, to which my husband commented aside to me that when he overloaded his system burnt it down, and a fire investigator took a look good luck with any insurance. Companies set guidelines for reasons. Of course they would like you to buy their product, but they have market forces which basically sets a ball park cost anyways or they would never sell anything. The cheap and easy route is often the has to be redone route, and often results in you tearing out perfectly good work to upgrade shoddy work. True we will inevitably change our minds d  something different etc, but research before you buy, but from a reputable company with a sound customer services department. o where was I...gets down off soap box LOL. Oh yes the scenic modelling. May not get the highest accolades, but it warms my heart 😃

All I wasn't is to fool just one person that this is the real thing and not a model, not a picture from the Goathland Station area either. But making and colouring that kit, then photographing was something I personally found rewarding, hopefully each and everyone of us finds an aspect of this hobby that makes them feel good.

this photograph of Goathland pleases me, the light and shadows add depth, the weathering on the models stop them screaming toy, and there are no floating buildings. During the build any of those criticisms would have applied, nothing pops into existence, we have to work on each area and go through th glaring obvious and trying to remove, tone down to just plain hide anything. I have often resorted to putting a half decent model in th foreground to hide something tacky behind it. Smoke and mirrors 🙂

Glad things have settled down a little Jaz.  We have all had our own challenges and all found our own ways of meeting them but I still maintain that a significant happening such as this always brings out the best in good people and the worst in bad people.  I had a chat with a friend of mine only a couple of days ago who manufactures model boat kits.  He was telling me about some of the telephone conversations he had had over the last few weeks.  He could write a book.

As for saving money on cable it simply beggars belief.
