In the beginning...

It seemed a good idea at the time. The Railway's carriage shed is a heritage item of some note, one of the early buildings erected to house some of the stock, particularly the coaches, the brake van and a few of the diesels.

It's starting to show its age, and will need replacement in the years to come. So now seems a good time to try making a model. The chosen scale is 1:19, which is the same as that used for the 16mm:1ft live steam layouts which inhabit the engine shed on gala days. I was tempted to model it in 'as is' condition, complete with missing/split boards and elegant lean, but eventually decided to keep it simple, and 'as new'.
