Work is ongoing on the scenery.
Here are some pictures to whet your appetite while work continues . . .

Meanwhile all is quiet in the dairy sidings with two tank wagons parked up and the shunter awaiting its next job.
Some preliminary detailing work.
This is the Dairy Shunter's shed interior before the roof beams, lights and roof are added, and is hopefully indicative of the level of detail I am aiming for all over the layout.
The workbench is scratchbuilt, with folded up newspaper ready for his next tea-break, the lazy so-and-so has left the hosepipe all over the floor, and he has somewhat dubious taste in calendars!
43118 exits the tunnel hurtling towards the station as some of today's milk tankers sit idle in the Dairy siding.
Loading bays with safety lights:-
These trucks/trailers still need backdating to 1990 and properly detailing, unlike the one below that has already been modified.
Two views of the tanker unloading round the back of the Dairy next to the storage tanks.
In case you're wondering about that shiny tarmac, it's a "wet weather" layout! This is England after all.
Barbara the depot clerk's office:-
She doesn't appear to be there though, wonder where she's gone?
Ah, there she is checking everyone's clocked in or out correctly.
