Thanks Wrenneire, the more I look at this the more I'm tempted to reproduce it. The lean to is a nice added feature to it. Where is this box located?

I have to agree with you, Paul C.

I have thought that it would be useful if some members with a decent knowledge of the lineside architecture of the various railways WLWR, DSER, MGWR, GSWR, GNR (or maybe their predecessors if necessary) could display a few photos of the prototypical buildings, signal etc along with suggestions for some lookalikes to assist modelers

Glad to see I’m not the only one painting the rails with a paintbrush.🤯

They are serving their apprenticeship Paul, if I am satisfied with the painting I may allow them to do some ballasting

Hard to get good help  ( Both "apprentices" are in their 70's)

There is a weighbridge mentioned on the original drawings of Ballyglunin so we have added this one which is of the same dimensions but we have no pics
