Nearly 2 weeks later, and things are definitely happening to the roof!

As requested by Laurent, here's how it looks 2 years on:

What's amazing to me is, not so much the goods shed which aside from its ice-lolly-stick exterior is good old steel mesh and tin cans glued on, but the signalman's cabin in the background! That is all wood/MDF, apart from a base made from Milliput. Aside from having a nicely dilapidated look to it now, in fact the only things that have fallen off that are the bits that I added after the event, the guttering and the down pipe - which are easily reattached anyway! I need to do a picture of that too I think, in more close-up.

thanks for requesting this Pic Laurent!
Clive, it really looks the part now!
One of the (many) advantages of a garden railway is the natural weathering. The downside is that sometimes you have to wait a while to see the effect!! Nice building.
