Railway employee's gardens

Postby Tim Hale » Thu Sep 22, 2011 10:18 am

Rather than drag out the thread in New Products, I thought it best to move the results to the correct section.

This is the garden of the stationmaster at Beaminster Road, he doesn't have time for many flowers and on his wages, every little helps. Rather than spend hours making the individual items from coloured tissue paper, I took full advantage of the latest products from Busch, Noch and Mini-Natur however the soil is pure Dorset as it is a Clipper brand tea bag (naturally, organic for the beardy-weirdy brigade) A few more details need to be added, some garden tools, discarded pots and a washing-line with 50's period clothes- were Y-fronts in use?

The white stuff, is just PVA, the planting was just completed about 30mins ago.

I am taking the model to Scaleforum and will answer any questions, if anyone is remotely interested.

Lovely Tim, but be careful at the weekend that Len Pinder doesn't pass by with his greenfly friendly loco.
Make Worcestershire great again.
Build a wall along the Herefordshire border and make them pay for it.

See http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/th ... 78788.html

... though I suspect the Stationmaster and his wife would go for something a little more old-fashioned.
