I have built some more buildings, a Faller Aldi, and their Horrem station building, I think they really work well with the layout. I have started a scratch build for the platform foo
  10. I used scalescenes download and print roads, glued down with pritstick of all things. Just make sure you have a good printer with one of those "ecotanks"... you'll need all the ink you can get!
  11. Because they don't make a modern DDA compliment model footbridge kit, I've had to scratch build my own. Never scratch built anything before! Here's the basic carcass from 1mm card. I've still one more platform to install when peco start to send out platform edging again!
