First placement tests...Obviously, the corner still needs to be glued down, pink painted black, structures and yards detailed and fixed... Still, great progress considering how long it took to get to this point. Time to do some bookbinding for a few days. Exhibits to work toward this year.

This is the only part of the layout that saw no scenery, ever! Posten 210 was described further down here, and will be paired with the little schrebergarten shacks from Joswood below. Scenery will be easy, but I've been saying that for at least the 8 years that I began the layout ago and the 1.5 years since getting the posten... Here goes nothing, or something...

After a far too long break, finally finished Joswood's Posten 210and provisionally placed it in its final position on the corner of the layout above the freight yard.Adjacent to it will be a small schrebergarten with several garden sheds.Will be good to get this corner done.

Received my first lasercut kit as a gift from a friend of mine in Germany recently... It's a small utilitarian streckenposten that stood alongside a grade level crossing at kilometer post 210 on Westmünsterlandbahn between Rheine and Emden, Germany. The structure stood in Rheine.
The kit is manufactured by Joswood and was a great introduction to building these kinds of kits. I've done a lot of scratchbuilding in card using photographic images, but this was quite different. The detail is amazing, especially the railings. Assembly was also quite straightforward. Definitely ready for more of these and look forward to a larger order of kits from Joswood and Moebo.

More pictures when I have it weathered, done, and placed on the layout.
