Rylston Light Railway - another teaser

Post by RylstonLight » Sun May 03, 2020 8:20 pm

Those of elephantine memory capacity may recall that the RLR has been without home for some time. Unforeseen circumstances interrupted the best laid plans just as the old track alignment became history. A more sedentary lifestyle had meant that the new alignment has been planned to within an inch of its life. However, Iโ€™m not quite yet ready to tackle the heavy landscaping required.

I have rehabilitated to increasingly heavy projects. Currently Iโ€™m working on Railway Cottages (the odd side of the street). They are situated on the approach to Rylston Station and are on a gentle falling grade. These are trial shots in natural light to check if they are acting the colours of Dales stonework. Think of the theme music to James Herriot when viewing. It helps the illusion! The roofs and windows are unfinished. The orange is temporary foam support. It is an augmented Pendle Valley kit.

After a couple of years of looking at autoCAD plans it is nice to see some concrete progress, despite no progress on the miniscape into which the cottages fit.

Veeerrrry nice. I love the different steps at each front door, to allow for the gradient. Colour looks pretty good to me as well.

Another superb photo Andy, not only the building which is very attractive ( I wish we had more stone buildings ) but I'm looking at how the building appears to go into the ground as opposed to sitting on top. The tree over the roof is also a nice balance of fine leaves and good shape. Your time planning has been put to good use.

Fantastic work. It's so unusual to see buildings NOT on level ground and yours is a welcome change and looks so realistic.

Wow! They look good! The level of detail is really impressive and the finish looks spot on to me.

If that's the unfinished version I can't wait to see them when they are finalised! :notworthy:

I think they look great! When I was reading the intro and only viewing the top half of the image they could be the real thing.... I had to look very closely to be sure.
The best things in life are free.... so why am I doing this?
