    There is a simple shed located in original location:

    It should not be a very difficult scratchbuilding project to have one. It is done using carton painted with mixture of white glue, acrylic paint and dust:

    I got some some critique from fellow Polish modellers that the surface relief is definitely oversized. Walls have been sanded. I really like the final result. The new technique of making old damaged plaster surface of the wall was discovered by coinsidence.
    The second comment was on the roof covering grade beeing oversized as well. The new roof was added.
    The final result:

    There is some progress with the module:

    Railway stop building found it's final location:

    The "Company" area was prepared using laser cut fence:

    The last farm building was prepared. This is carton lasercut model by MBZ Modellbau from Germany

    Landscaping the farm area with some "little things": dog's house, white stork nest, some wood waiting to be used and rusted waste materials

    Railway crossing with the relict of narrow gauge. One of railway crossing signs is a bit destroyed. This is the result of drunky driver action...

    There are more trees and bushes around train stop:

    I added telegraph poles (3D printing from Shapeways) and decided to have wires. I belive thet do not look oversized.

    Looks very realistic. What did you use for the wires?

    The wires were made using a special vein (?) gimp (?) used for sewing men's suit trausers - lower part to fasten wristbend (?). Sorry for my English - I am not sure if it is understandable. I am not sure about specific words.

    More trees were added. Practically all of them are of my own production:

    The area of commercial company still should be filled with some objects.
    Unfortunately I broke part of the fence while making photos with my mobile phone:
    IMG_0487.JPG
    The first idea was that I still have some spare fence but then the inspiration tu turn the disaster into on opportunity came. I started with some bushes:

    And added the reason for broken fence:

    I like the fallen tree, great job turning lemons into lemonade.

    The fallen tree was a great idea to salvage the accident, really adds character I think :)

    The company area finished. Small "warehouse" for tools is made of old Marklin Banana car. The concrete plates and the road are made of small parts produced by fellow modeller. They were produced using gypsum. To make the road was really a challanging job.... Big cans are Kibri, tyres - 3D parts by @southernnscale.

    That paved path is amazingly detailed, must have taken a lot of patience.
    You are really talented at making things look realistic, really like your work!

    Final works on the module...
    Some more trees - I tried to create "gate to the forrest" effect:
    IMG_0557.JPG

    I realized that in reality there is some sand or ground heap next to the company area:

    IMG_0559.JPG

    Some more trees added also in the company corner:

    IMG_0561.JPG

    I think that this was the final landscaping issues on the module. I still would like to have an opportunity to add a backdrop and I will try to have some dust protection cover.

    I started to think to have a technical module at the end to switch trains and locomotives. The initial idea was to have it without any landscaping - just for technical use. I wanted to keep to the standard 99x30 cm modules. After some considerations I came into conclusion that I would like to have a turntable to make it possible to turn the locomotive especially because I do not want to have Marklin "hooks" in front of steam locomotives. The cost of turntable is not a small one ... Some plans were drawn and finally I started to look for a prototypical place in which turntable was used not as a part of big locomotive shed - preferably at the end of the line. Some help from fellow modellers and I started to research Trzebnica station. I found two station plans:

    trzebnica.gif

    trzebnica1.gif

    My initial idea to have technical module finally ended up with landscaped model based on real Trzebnica. I plan to give the name of Trebnica to it to illustrate some "modeller's licence I plan to employ. One of my inventions is to have water tower. I think that instead of technical station I will have a small switching layout based on real location.
    The important thing is that the railway crosses the road over the bridge. Until 60ties there was narrow gauge railway going under this bridge.
    The track plan and the general idea looks like this:

    One of the thing I try to do for main part of 368 project is to have prototypical railway objects of Nojewo station. One of them is water tower. Some photos of original tower can be found here:
    http://wiezecisnien.eu/wielkopolskie/nojewo_pkp/
    This is very typical German design of water tower and they can be found in many places. Unfortunatelly I could not find any commercial product good for this (there is KIBRI model but in N scale). I started to cooperate with Konrad Malkowski - USA based 3D Shapeways designer of Polish origin. The result of this cooperation can be found here:
    https://www.shapeways.com/product/G...er-tower-wasser-turm-najewo?optionId=61380391

    Printed tower:

    I added some details:

    Pawel, very well done and nice project (y)(y)(y)

    For your end station take a look at "Kl├╝tz", a small station in North Germany (Mecklenburg). It would fit perfectly to your water tower and style of this layout. Perhaps you can adapt it for your purpose.

    Steffen - thank you very much for the suggestion. There will be probably a need to have another "end module" in the future ... I found some photos of the Klutz station and layout in O scale based on that location. This looks to be nice place to be modelled.

    Yes, indeed. Only problem I see is size of turntable. It is designed for small locomotives like Oi2, Ok1, Tp4, TKi3. Thinking, a visible turntable for Ty2 is too big for that kind of station...
