The level crossing..

Today some effort goes into this level crossing, the picture below with the fern shows no thought what so ever in regards to vehicle traffic except for a warning light facing in 1 direction only that won't stop flashing! A source of personal contention in that over time one simply ignores... until now. 

Silver fern passes through a clearly war torn landscape

The loose gravel was scooped out & cardboard cutouts were used as the road former. Coated with thick black paint & fine black coal dust applied.

Still very much a work in progress, I will apply another layer of almost sand like dust mixed with pva, paint & drop of dish washing liquid to hopefully create a convincing asphalt surface.
The 2nd carriage from the right (with a guard waving on the end), simply refuses to sit flat & level. Everything is filed flat yet it continues to list to the side... 

I've checked the couplers..

And a video of the Ab, Ja, Ka taking turns with the 47'6ers
