    A little more done. Added the second walkway as well as a railing along the "Track Bumper" as well as the steps leading down into the pits although the pics don't show them they are there:

    Olie,

    In the last photo you can see them, sort of. The "red things" at the very front of the pits. I'll try to get a better picture of them if I can.

    Here are the Pit Steps:





    The steps came with the Peco Pits. Each pit has two steps per pit; although, I have only used one set per pit.

    Thanks again Scotian Huntress. Glad I'm not modelling a UK shop then, can't see myself putting up all that safety tape in N Scale

    I do, however, kind of like the pits having railings around them. That I can do with what I have for the outside Pits. What do you think and how do you think that would look? Too much or appropriate?
    Cheers Tony

    I would test your locomotives for clearance, you are testing all of your locomotives for clearance right?

    Anyways, seriously if you wanted to be up to date I would include those railings

    I am using what I think is my widest engine, the Genesis P42, for checking the clearance, in fact, that is one thing that might be a problem having the railings around the outside of the pit area - the amount of room between the railings and the walls of the Shop. I need about 1/4" between the side of the engine and the railing, at least. Doing so will only give me about 1/2" between the railing and walls ... not a hell of a lot, even in real rems only about 6 1/2'.

    That being said, the shop will be enclosed so you really wont see too much that is along the side walls meaning it probably wont matter if the spacing isn't that realistic ... so long as there is clearance between the railings and the engines. The only time the complete interior detail will be clearly visible is if I remove the roof.

    I'm going to have to think about this BUT am leaning toward the additional railings.
    Cheers Tony

    Well, think I am now getting up to "code" on this



    This is 95% how it will look when done. All that remains now I think is to put in the "all ready painted" cabinets, benches and fire extinguishers:

    One thing that was brought to my attention was the "unsupported" walkway span; I'm going to have to add a couple more support beams for them me thinks

    Once I get the pre painted details and install them, I'll be securing the walls etc to the floor and will then be able to finish the wiring (Resistors to each lighting set). THEN we'll see how it is going to really look - exciting isn't it?

    Love the details you are adding in. The railings on the outlet side of the pits is a nice add.
