Chronicling the development of my Cambrian and Narrow Gauge 4mm scale model railway

Shed

The family and I are on holiday this week so no modelling to talk of. We did manage to get a trip in to the Welshpool and Llanfair railway though which I was glad of as Countess was the first NG loco I ever fell in love with back when I was a small spotty teenager so it was nice to have a ride behind The Earl. 



On a walk yesterday I came across a few buildings which I took photos of for reference. I love a good delapifated building. The colours, textures, and shapes are just all so much more interesting than a building with straight lines. 

First this wonderful barn being used to store wood. Note the discoloured wood and the sagging gate all adding to the atmosphere. (Also note the guest appearance of Hils, guard dog and all round softy belonging to the Matriarch and Patriarch)


Secondly this wood and wrinkly tin shed:


Finally, this fantastic building covered in moss and with the tree behind resting on it. No apologies for taking so many photos of it; I just love the atmosphere oozing from it. Maybe I’ll get one or more of these buildings into my model somewhere or other.

Now rapidly approaching my fifth decade, I am a rolling stock engineer and have worked in many different locations including a 7 year spell in Sydney, Australia, where I arrived with a suitcase and left with a wife and a son. I am now based back in my home county of Yorkshire where I juggle full time work, being a Dad to two rascally mini-mes, and trying to fit in railway modelling and visits to the top left hand corner of Wales. In addition to my heavily railway themed life, I am interested in rugby, cricket, reading crime novels, falconry, and medieval re-enactments.
