Fuel Stop!

In the final look at layout locations that are at or near completion this week, I return to the Fuel Terminal which, as you know, has taken us rather longer to progress than we had anticipated.
Still, it is now almost finished with just a few more tweaks to be done before we can stop work on this bit in order to carry on with a different are of the railway - namely the section of the town that was left undone whilst we turned our attention to this troublesome corner.
As you can see, we have added a few figures that are, actually, from the set of Bachmann Traction Maintenance Depot Workers but they seem to fit in well here. We have also added some vehicles but these are only temporary and will be changed for more suitable ones as and when we get them.
At a recent Toy and Train Fair we picked up four of the older Hornby 100 Ton bogie tank wagons and these will be used to service the fuel terminal. Ideally we would have liked some of the new Bachmann wagons but the Hornby ones were cheaper and, when they are suitably weathered, will probably look just as good.
