The yard area closest to the branch line was visible opposite the station platform in my blog post dated 21 November 2013. As could be seen when the scenery was removed in blog post dated 25 November 2013, I had cut away some of the grassy scenic scatter to extend this freight handling area little further.
In my blog post dated 13 November 2013 I described how I like to create freight handling areas on both sides of a siding where possible so that model vehicles, figures and accessories are not placed together in a crowded or contrived arrangement. I created an additional area of flat ground between the two sidings to allow me to spread such detailing accessories over a wider area. This was a much better use of a small but important piece of ground.
This is one of my N gauge scenic model railway layouts. To see more model railway layout baseboards I have designed and built visit my website www.brianford.co.uk.
