The canvas cab sheet is a possible dodge as would be a canvas cover over the running gear to allow for all sorts of motive power. Who's not thinking Tri-ang Polly when looking at this?

And on to another goods shed. This one could take a little longer. Based on one just up from here at Cooksbridge it's a small LBSCR structure and although the records quote that it's a 'standard shed', there ain't too many of them around and not too many built in the first place. In fact I've struggled to find period photos.
Anyway. One side wall done and the bottom half of one end all in the now expected Wills sheet. It's a bit material heavy with the overlaid (or in fact underlaid) inset sections. It is of course part of the next epic publication and will find a physical home on Mr. Hill's planned home layout.

On another point I noted that in the above The good Rev got much more operation in not much wider that the Art of Compromise in his Linslade, both 6' long.

While looking for something else (how many times do we do this) I found three or four Merit figures in a tobacco tin. They're a bit of a weird shape and a mile away from some of the quality cast and 3D current products - however...
Being that this is really a 70's/early 80's plan and again with Miles Bevan whispering in my ear I thought a little cameo group at the back of the layout sans-flag and bases might be fun. After all I can't really see where else I would use them.

Well it took a bit longer than I expected. Drainpipe, glazing and step are now done and the SR signal hut is now complete. Moral: it takes just as long to build a small box as it does a big one. Just the goods shed to do for this section. I might not be over the hump yet, but at least I can see the top.
