Two coats of grey acrylic paint were applied to the platform edging followed by a thin wash of yellow. Many thin washes of brown, green and black acrylic paint were then applied to create the weathered appearance of concrete covered in dirt from smoke and diesel fumes. I used the same painting process used to weather the concrete pillbox detailed in my blog post dated 13 March 2014.
The upper surface of the platform was textured with fine sand and painted with a couple of coats of medium grey acrylic paint. Brown paint was then dry brushed onto the textured upper surface to replicate the muddy marks which are often left by road vehicles.
Space to keep a couple of extra items of rolling stock is very handy when operating such a tiny model railway.
I intended to add Peco NB-45 flexible fencing alongside the access road during the last stages of construction to enhance this part of the model railway landscape.
Rounford Halt is one of my N gauge scenic model railway layouts. To see more model railway layout baseboards I have designed and built visit my website www.brianford.co.uk.
