Nearly finished - phew
Spent the rest of yesterday finishing off some little buildings and the coal staith and fuelling point. Got it all working after the paint, the painted again and got it all working again etc. Anyway Its as close to ready as its going to get.
The puddles are where the paint is still wet but I actually like the effect so may well add a spot or two of gloss varnish to replicate it.
This evening I shall give the whole thing a final clean up and clean of the loco wheels and get the thing into the car ready for the morning. I suddenly thought yesterday that having made ir wider it may not fit out the shed door... but it does with about and inch to spare.
