Bank Notes

Last weekend we had planned to visit the Dorset Steam Fair but, because the weather was going to be rather dull and wet, we, instead, spent much of the day working on the layout.
We were pleased that we did too because, by the end of the session, we had landscaped the embankment alongside both the stream and the lake and we also finished laying scatter on the road.

Another job was to sprinkle a layer of small stones along the bed of the stream. We will also plant some weeds and greenery before the addition of the water.
Apart from the stream we now only have to work on the garden of the large house before we can then move across to the other side of the stream. Then, looking further ahead, when that area is complete we plan to start on the diesel depot before Christmas.
In the lower picture we see a group of people waiting at a bus stop in Petersfield. This little cameo can (just) be seen to the extreme left of the top picture and was created using the Hornby Skaledale Wooden Bus Shelter, R.8680 with one of the Gilbow Exclusive Fine Editions Street Scene bus stop.
