Road Side Lights had also been installed by now and this was it just about ready for installing on the layout. However, as it happened, the N Gauge Society (NGS) AGM was coming up and my wife thought the model was good enough to enter into the Annual Model-making Competition. I wasn’t sure myself but decided to have a go anyway so, to set it off, I created a bit of a diorama setting with a section of platform and track on the trackside and a car park and Station Master’s garden on the roadside. This also formed a compartment for installing a 9v battery to run the lights. And here are photos of the finished article with the canopy and lights installed and various bits of platform furniture and fencing fitted all set into the above noted diorama. You may also notice the roof finials, which were individually turned from bamboo cocktail sticks in a Dremel chuck.
