The last picture of Post #2 showed the Goods Shed. I made a start on the Low Relief replacement today. This will again be a Characature of the original.

1st Pic shows the orrible one that has done service for a Year or two, together with the start of the new one and Tools used. Again I will be using 5mm HIPS scribed with trusty old Coffee Stirers for the Woodwork. A Plasticard Door will also be made. image.jpeg
This picture below shows my Scribe Lines for the Brickwork Horizontals, Pencil for the Vertical Brickwork and Woodwork. Looks a bit busy but will make sence as I work on.

The Yellow Screwdriver does the Vertical Brick Lines. A few everyday gets the job done.

I was so impressed with Jamie’s work on his station that yesterday I decided to have a little go at some messy detail. Most Stations appear to have a mass of wiring out side, Alexisbad is no different so this is my starter for 10 copying on from Jamie‘s inspiration.

Job was done using a little bit of 40 thou plasticard to make the box with some very fine Brass insulated Wire glued in and shoved through varying holes in the box and building. Holding Straps are that very thin brass wire purloined from wine Bottles, a pain to untangle but well worth it for such a valuable resource,

That is a very good effort, Jon..
The DP (Distribution Point) / black box, is spot-on.. - You just need to work on the running of your cables, a little! ;):giggle::giggle:

Not too sure about that, some of the cable runs I've seen are so much worse
