Absolutely stunning job you've done there, and a nice, clear description of construction in your blog - I'd love to see a bit more of the layout that this is intended for.... :)

Many thanks, I would like to see the layout as well. Tracklaying and wiring is ongoing. It is a branchline addition to our main layout. The main layout is coarse OO but the branch is finescale. There are pictures and videos in the links.

The station building above is based on Tetbury. To complement it we wanted the companion Parcels Shed, a kit of which is also produced by C&L. However, the price was somewhat offputting so I decided to have a go and scratch build the shed. Here's the finished result:

A detailed account of how I built it can be found here:

Line drawings of buildings at Tetbury can be found in Paul Karau's Great Western Branch Line Termini, Vol One, these were invaluable.

Earlier I completed a scratch build of the engine shed:

C&L now produce the kit.

Here are some pictures of the layout at GBTS in Brampton last weekend:

We just got the branch running a couple of days before the show. None of the buildings are fixed yet and there is still a lot of work. Track is C&L and points are handbuilt on copper clad, point motors are Cobalt. There are 2 signals on the branch and, yes, they do work although the one in view is droopy when set to danger so will get some attention.
