    Very nice, as usual. I feel the lady sitting on the stairway adds a hint of mystery to the scene.

    I think we forget how much colour there was back then. Right from Victorian times, people liked to see bright rich colours used in such things as changing huts and awnings. Looking at old B+W photos you just don't see the rich vibrancy. Troels is showing us that splashes of bright colour suitably weathered for its location makes the whole scene come alive.

    It's a fine line between twee, caricature and artistic interpretation or whimsy - I think Troels is treading that line quite well so far!!!

    I also think that some readers forget that this is all the work of just one modeller and all this has been achieved in only eighteen months from an empty room. That's about five years of effort more than I have achieved. Having just built a wall and two gate posts with individual bricks I can respect the amount of time it is taking to create this layout to such a consistently high standard.

    Nice overall of the Hotel. But that cloud to the left of the tower doesn't look quite right or as Frederic might say "Je ne sais quoi"

    Some more work on the hotel scene... a concrete staircase, some gravel for the roads, an awning under construction, some of the furniture has arrived and needs paint... a cake on the counter, people beginning to move in or out of the hotel... tomorrow some serious ground cover work!

    You dont need no handles... the doors just push inwards and there is a 'slide bolt' on the inside to lock it and a knob to pull open the door.

    Just walk down the row and give the doors a gentle and polite push, if it doesnt open its 'occupied' if it does open its empty, or, your 'in-luck'......... or it's granny who forgot about the 'slide bolt.

    Hi Troels, I have just joined the forum after being a long-time "lurker". One of the main reasons for joining was to thank you for sharing your skills and the fun you are having in constructing the Coast Line Railroad. Some of my earliest memories of US model railroads were photos of John Allen's Gorre and Daphetid RR and Whitney K Tower's Alturas & Lone Pine RR in a book on model railways of the world. Those floor to ceiling mountains were awe inspiring to a wee young lad in England. Who'd of thought that a layout of the Maine coastline being built by a Dane in Sweden could be exceeding those feelings of over forty years ago. So thank you again Troels and please keep on enthralling and inspiring me and so many others around the world.

    LOL, Granny's not gonna get in through them doors until someone provides a door handle!

    OK, so I'm pernickety this morning, but I do like them.

    Cheers

    An enchanting little ensemble of structures Troels, beautifully built, weathered and proportioned.

    The use of wood for the siding really shows a difference in the texture and shadows of the graining, much more 'depth' to the walls.

    The worn paint, aged wall bottoms, dry brushing, etc are all excelently done and the shingles came out perfectly, colouring and texture wise.

    Wonderful addition to the overall scene.

    What a cute new little scene, Troels! Much more appealing than Deauville cabins.

    Absolutely divine,

    I wish I was on that sea shore, watching the waves lap ashore, a quick jaunt across to the Seaview.
