Thank you everyone for the kind comments. jhb, i like that story from the Kildare cabin. 

I think my next build will be either the two water towers situated at either end of the platforms or the small mess house that was located close to the engine shed.  All to be confirmed. B|

The water tower was an interesting one, with both broad and narrow gauge sides to it. Not too many of those about....Ballymena, Ballymoney...anywhere else? Ennis, possibly?

I'm not sure Jhb but they are unusual and a must to model, I think. The one at the Derry end has only the single feeding arm as opposed to two arms that fed both the main and narrow gauge lines at the Belfast end. I took a look at them today and apart from that obvious difference they both would appear to be exact copies of each other, if you ignore that one is white and the other grey!  I think I need to construct both of them simultaneously to ensure I follow the same methods in the build process. 

Will take a stroll up to them later in the week to photograph.

That is one very fine signal box. Have built a few in my time and for me, they are always one of the more challenging buildings to get right & that is before you realise you have to fit the interior.
