Figures are probably the easiest and cheapest way to add detail to your layout. Just adding a couple will help tell a story, or bring a diorama to life. These two chaps are getting ready to hoist a load onto an incoming wagon. The figures are set 14016 (Delivery Men) from Preiser and cost me £7.25. The chain was cut from an unwanted necklace and was painted a dull grey.

So I’ve long been promising an insight into what I’ve been working on lately. But first a bit of background: Langstead Junction is on hold. The reason for this is two-fold.
- Firstly it’s to help me save a bit of cash and post-christmas is always the ideal time in the year to do this.
- Secondly, I’ve got the stage where Langstead Junction has developed as far as is technically possible within the realms of space and design. I’d really like to start a main layout again from scratch, and put right many of the design flaws that I built into Langstead Junction without better knowledge. I’d like to run longer trains, concentrate on scenery to a higher standard and maybe convert my stock to DCC. As you can probably tell this isn’t going to be an overnight change. It also slightly negates the first point: Save Money!
