Chatting to a fellow modeller the other day, I mentioned that I need a photo that sums up the scene I'm intending to model before I can really get into building a layout. The picture doesn't have to show anything planned to be modelled, it just needs atmosphere.
I think this might be just such a picture. It's taken at Bressingham around the back of the sheds. The buildings are unprepossessing, but serve a purpose. You can really see this as an estate railway doing a proper job. Perhaps even a real industrial line. There's certainly nothing pretty about it.
If I turn the camera around a little bit, there is an open sided shed which is even less pretty, but even more interesting to the enthusiast.
