My boys are growing up and this leads to regular clear-outs of toys and clothes, etc. Among the last major lot to go was Christopher's Thomas the Tank Engine stuff. Among the boxes I found this -
 So after a week of messing about, I now have this -

Obviously I messed about with the tower, adding the platform and access ladders, then painted and weathered it a bit.
The shed and coal bunker are Wills Scenics, the walls are cut down and modified Britains.
I`ve added various clutter to break up the open areas - crates, stacks of wood, large drums all found in my bits box, the oil wagon was cobbled together from similar bits.
