I have been busy painting the 5th version of the model of my model railway Hadarford today.
It is not quite complete, I still have to add some of the buildings to it, and the areas of trees, similar to what I did on version 4. In this version I have represented the rail track with the silver colour. The wider section between the station platforms is double track allowing me to have trains, in opposite directions, to pass each other. In comparison to the previous version there is a lot less rail track and it cuts out the large amount which was hidden underneath scenery. I am a bit worried that the road sections, especially along the rear of the layout crossing the canal at the canal bridge, are a bit straight, but I can vary this with the actual layout. By having only the one canal lock in this version, because there is no rail track underneath, it means the canal does not dominate the layout and I am able to create a more complex station area. I may replace these photos with ones taken outside tomorrow, but by the time I had finished today it was too dark outside to take photos.
