The front has had a layer of 2mm static grass added, the ground has all been drybrushed with buff grey and I've made a start adding staining to the ballast. Now I have that awful wait for the PVA/flow improver and brown ink to dry, before I can get stuck in with more dry brushing.
Still for 4 hours, I am not unhappy at all, with the progress.
I should be able to get a few more chunks of foliage placed this afternoon.
For buildings I am going with Hornby 'Lyddle End' which will all get repaints... Probably a loading dock, coaling point, signal box, and 3 sheds. Lots of trees of course on the moorland. The grey foreground adjacent to the yard will get assorted industry (think Darley Dale / Matlock again ). All in all I am finding this far more relaxing than any recreational figure painting I've done in 25 years...
