The Yellow Pelican Mining Co. - the main building continued

I used scrap plywood (an old wooden packing case picked up at Pershore Market) to clad the cardboard structure, as you can see I have not added wood where the second building will clip in place.

This plain wood was then 'aged' by adding washes of diluted acrylic paint following some examples of old wood seen in the garden.

This final image shows the main mine building alongside the loading barn where the trains will reverse in the empty wagons and then exit with full loads.

The loading area has also been built from corrugated cardboard and clad with individual strips of more scrap wood.
