OK, the bit some of you have been waiting for! Lets go out the back door and do some work!
This is the landlord’s garden railway. It is 7 1/4” gauge, 1/3 scale layout inspired by St Nicholas Fields.
I am putting in a foundation frame for a building where it is chalked on the tarmac.
I see that a pond and some paving has gone in the garden railway. It’s just a pond liner and plants and stuff are still needed.
Once the landlord has done that I can get on with the wood work around it.
Also this very ‘Squeeeeee’ little shipping container has arrived. It needs a bit of work but will be the ‘engine shed’ for the 1/3 scale Beryl.
This is the landlord’s model of Beryl. It is brass and still needs a lot of finishing off. It is 1/3 scale 2’ narrow gauge. There are also some 1/6 scale standard gauge wagons I need to work on and re-body to suit Beryl.
This is so sweet! There is a little man figure inside to drive it! Apparently it should be a woman so I might need to ‘do some surgery on him’, poor chap!
Right, the landlord needs to get on with the landscaping so I will leave it there for now.
Small stuff, it’s so cute!
The landlord has been and made up the embossed paving and secured the pond liner. There’s no bond in the paving but that’s miniature work I suppose.
Anyway I had to quickly get the beams installed for the building as the landlord is due back shortly.
Hello you two. No point feeding the ducks, there aren’t any yet. And what’s in your bucket? Poo? Oh, lovely…
I see the plants are in, but they are plastic. I guess it isn’t easy growing bonsai bulrushes.
I will be adding a pond dipping platform next.
