Some time ago I had bought a Pola kit which I thought might come in handy for a bit of bashing so it formed the basis for the dairy
The first stage was to paint the kit and then assemble the basic structure
I added an extra sliding door to the side. then needed a loading dock to the side the cover of which started life as part of the Wills Platform canopy. On the other side I have adapted the Dapol / Airfix platform canopy to provide a covered tanker loading area. So seen below is the finished article which I think works pretty well

After the station I went back to Rolling stock and built three carriages based on the well known Ratio GWR coach sides. These were a brake first and two semi open thirds, using Tomix container flats for the chassis'.
The roofs were made from the stanley carpet protector, which is ready curved but being PVC isn't the easiest stuff to deal with.
The outcome is below:
After the coaches it was time for the first steamer which was a Chivers "Russell" which i have named "Dove" This engine will ultimately have a twin sister called "Derwent"
Finally Santa Brought me a Paul Windle Masterpiece in the form of his new Yorkshire Engine Comapny 0-6-0 seen here carrying the name Riber with "Dove"

I did read somwhere that not a lot happens until they are nearly ready to flower then they grow rapidly. So I am not yet sure whether I have a disaster on my hands or not!!
