Nice work on the loco Jess, and the tracks look great too. They simply complete it.

Thank you for your comments :)

Benches made from match sticks.

Image

Clock and sign was made from a print out from the internet, then I got a matchstick and coloured it with a sharpie. The floor was done by felt tips on white paper.

Image

Benches have been stained. The station signs are a combination of internet print out and decor from my OO gauge railway set that I didn't use.

A decor from OO gauge Railway kit that wasn't used.

Love what you have done with the station, will you add any figures? With the train alongside you could be on too a winner!

I don't think adding figures is within the rules?

I do believe Jess will be adding figures and working gas lamps after the comp as these will be either kit form or aftermarket items and will not be allowed as part of the comp.
