I'm sure there was lots of fun.  You don't always need big for fun

What a wonderful thread  :love:

I love the outdoor pictures and the way you have created your own miniature world with your little helpers  :)

There is something magical about miniature trains and outdoor settings !

Looking forward to seeing what comes next on the FB project  ;)

Billy-Jo, Betty-Jo and Bobbie-Jo look down frightened from the water tower when the sunday rest is suddenly disturbed. Downstairs, the construction workers from “klusbedrijf HENK” are busy making a foundation. When Billy-Jo, after her first amazement, asks what the people are doing downstairs, Henk replies that they are making a coal storage. Despite the fact that the Ferrovie dello Balconia operates two steam locomotives, there was still a lack of a coal storage facility. The Ferrovie dello Balconia always required the help of the neighbours, but as the company grows, there is an urgent need to provide the steam locomotives with water and coal themselves. After the conversion of the signal boards there was a lot of wooden planks left over, so they immediately started to build a coal storage.

Due to the constant heat, the work comes to a halt more and more. The coal storage is now being varnished, but the temperature in the house is now so high that the varnish is already drying on my brush. That's also the reason why I haven't started at the locomotive shed yet.
I did work on a small detail: the placing of the undersigns at the signal boards. At Signomatic you can have signs made to your liking, even up to quite small formats. Especially for scale G a tip. For the rest relaxing on my day off and tease the cats a little bit (they think my train tunnel is fantastic!).

Nice attention to detail in the signage, Marco.

Do you have some photos of the cats enjoying the tunnel for us, please?

Quite a number of British railway stations have "celebrity" cats working on their platforms and in their buildings.
