New Walmington Pier 009 Edwardian Seaside Pier Tramway (www.newwalmingtonpier.com)

This is the start of the autumn/winter layout overhaul before its 2020 exhibition season starts next February.

Today I got rid of the God-awful Peco 009 buffer stops and replaced them with 3D printed track bumpers

Here's the before and after photos.
The big job to come is repainting the white edging of the pier which involves removing several coats of the white paint and replacing the plastic railings with laser-cut ones.

All Cars Stop Here 請在此站停車 00 scale Hong Kong Tramways street scene (www.hongkongtramlayout.webs.com)

The 80M Hong Kong made 'Tram Stop' transfers cracked and flaked once dried rendering them useless, I replaced them with a self-adhesive print of the card backing and cut them to fit.
The other simple job was to add the crossover wire to my dummy overhead and both items make a difference!

I never was 100% happy with the EFE KMB Daimler Fleetline bus on the layout so how about something heritage? A China Motor Bus 1926 Leyland Lion at the bus layby.
