Coming along nicely

After a few attempts I'm now happy with the way the scenery profile at the rear of the station board looks.  The goods yard access road flows nicely behind the cattle dock.  The siding for the end loading dock has been cut back further enabling the roadway to reach it comfortably.  The basic profile for the scenery was made from heavy card with a card lattice formed over it.  This was then topped with Mod-roc plaster bandage.   The flat brown paint is obviously the basic ground cover and until any greenery is added certainly looks better than the white plaster.  I'm looking forward to getting on with the scenery especially as I have a static grass applicator which I'm just itching to get using!
On the far left I've added a station-masters house loosely based on a prototype at Adlestrop.  On the right the land behind the platform has also been built up.  I'm quite pleased with how things are progressing.  I just wish it was easier to set up both scenic boards to work on together but doing so prevents access to the cupboards holding my modelling materials.
