Goods and Mineral Junction Box

 I thought you might like to see the last bit of work on the centrepiece of Belle Isle, before we crated the layout to go to Warley.

Making blocks of buildings is a useful way of checking shape / space requirements. There is no question that Goods & Mineral Jcn. box will need a fully detailed interior, because you will be able to see see right into it from the front.  We should also have all the lattice girder work in time for Warley, assuming Mike's eyesight holds up.

Finally, whilst ruffling through Matthew's Brown Box I found the last of Ced Verdon's resin cast buses. These are exquisite works of art and, even if it is completely the wrong type of bus, looks excellent on York Way. Just needs a few bill boards along the parapets to complete the scene.
