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)
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.
