Progress so far-1

 Sorry but I am going to bore you with how Teignford has progressed.
Extra fencing has been sourced and the platform is now enclosed.
Some of the corrugated huts have been planted and the weeds have taken a good foothold.
Some areMini Natur other greenery is by Woodland Scenics.
More next time.

Completed Signal Box.

 At long last the 'Box' is finished. The last pictures until it's been installed on the layout.
Based on the example at Nancegollan, the only difference is that Teignfords' box doesn't have a landing at the top of the steps.
Pictures show my model placed on a picture of Nancegollan - Quite pleased with the result- Comments please.

Stairway to signalbox.

Staircases always seem daunting. The ones that rise to the operating level of a signalbox are no exception.
I remember the days of placing each step against the handrails and with the third hand applying adhesive!
In 3mm its easy, just buy some Plastruct styrene stair and handrail. It says on the packet HO but then scales it as 1:100- result.
After the stair and rails are cut to length it's just a matter of running some MEK along the joint with a fine paintbrush and it's done. Some end uprights have been added but a few minutes work and we have the steps for Teignfords new Signalbox.
