Throwing in the Towel

After some consideration I have decided to withdraw Colwyn Bay Goods from the GJLC. Due to personal reasons, I can not complete the layout to a standard where I would be happy with by July.

Thanks to everyone who followed the thread and gave up time to help with research and construction advice. The layout with go into storage and I hope to have another attempt over the coming winter months.

Bricking it.

The public viewing side of the goods shed.
Slow progress is happening with the goods shed, final details have been added and everything given a coat of grey primer. Once this had been given a day or so to set properly it was given a base coat of orange with a wet water colour pencil and left to dry. Later that day the whole structure was rubbed over with dry water colour pencils in various shades of red. I'm quite pleased with the outcome, but it requires touching up in places to tone down the separate pen strokes.
