Mini loco refuelling stop

Recommended Posts

Hi my previous attempts of creating a small diorama have failed. Due to slowly recovering from this horrible virus. 
I am attempting to model a small diorama with a steam theme to it. A little Andrew Barclay N.C.B. loco will be stopping for refuelling at a small siding. 
More to follow...

Hi I have uploaded a progress picture of my mini diorama. The walled section is progressing well and looks great painted up and weathered. 
Im waiting for the factory wall to arrive from LCUT as this will be low relief and will blend in well with the finished wall.

Thanks NorthBrit and StaffsRail for the likes. I made a tiny b**b on the wall section, I laid the track before realising I had the wall to build. 
So I cut out a gap but all will be hidden with a wall mounted buffer stop and foliage.😉

Hi I have completed a little more work on my micro diorama. The ballast was laid yesterday and today it’s set nicely, just needs a little weathering. 
The buffer stop is spare parts from a wagon kit. I’m pleased with the way it looks. This will be rusted and weathered in due course. Today I’m hoping the front of the workshop building arrives so work can begin on that. But for now some snaps...

Work is progressing nicely on my micro build. The low relief workshop has been built and I have painted and weathered it to make it like the wall. I’m pleased with how it looks. 
Cobbles have been laid, painted and weathered around by the workshop area. At the moment I’m working on a coal bunker which has been made from and old mineral wagon kit I had laid around. 
For now a picture of my progress...

A bit more time has been spent modelling items on my micro diorama. The steel coal bunker which was made from an old mineral wagon has been painted up and weathered to get the desired rust affect I needed. I’m happy with the way it’s turned out. 
Real coal will be added in due course. 
A small oil drum has been left in the corner which needs to be weathered up slightly. 
I have loaded up a couple of pictures of my diorama progress...

Morning I thought I would give you a wee update. At the moment I am awaiting figures and lineside items to arrive from Dart castings. 
So at the moment the diorama has come to a small halt. Soon as items arrive and are added to the diorama I will update.😉

Afternoon after finishing nights I have managed to paint up and add the loco irons to my micro diorama. Also added is a painted coal yard worker. 
Im still waiting on some items arriving but until then work will commence on some bits of foliage being added. 
A picture of my progress...
