Brickchester 2020

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, this is my city Brickchester, I was inspired by greg3's city of Ballabreek and the stories he tells, so I thought I would do the same.

Brickchester is an old English city dating back to at least the age of the roman invasion of England, though not much evidence remains of this in my city.

This is near the centre of the main street, as you can closely see, palace cinema is boarded up, and there is a plaza that might need some brightening up.

Here is a look down towards one end of my modular street.

At the other end is Corner Garage, and a bike shop and pizza place, with an end of line tram stop.

Just along from Corner Garage is a small car park, next to Downtown Diner (Which has been reversed).

The Town Hall and Fire Bridge sit together off the main street on what is currently a rather narrow bit of road.

Just along from Town Hall is the Pet Shop and the recently built Bookshop (which was unfortunately missing a piece, but this has since bee rectified)

Just along from the Bookshop is a garage with some small shops.

A view of the airport but also showing an overview of the city.

A carousel sits at the end of the city here.

Centre of main street again, but from the other side.

The funfair is a permanent feature in the city of Brickchester, but it's definitely missing something. :wink:

Another view of the centre of main street, on the left side you can see a reversed Parisian Restaurant.

Finally at the end of the main street sits Grand Emporium and a hospital along with a little car dealership.

Thanks for looking, and any comments or improvements that could be made, don't be afraid to ask.

Hey dude, appreciate the effort but the photos are way too small to see anything! 

Please turn your phone sideways next time and try posting them on Flickr or similar.

Looking good so far and a very impressive collection of modular buildings!! (Sort of like Ballabreek’s bigger brother😉. Looking forward to seeing what sort of stories you come up with!!

As for the photography I know how hard it is to photograph a layout when the available lighting and angles are not the best. Try concentrating on just a close up of a small area as it makes it much easier to get decent shots. 

Nice work and thanks for sharing.

Unfortunately I've been rather busy so haven't had much time for Brickchester, but as stated before the Palace Cinema had been closed down for a while, and has now finally reopened.

The stars having pictures taken together before the premiere, no pictures were taken inside the screening, due to a strict no phone policy.

Yet again I've been really busy with work and university, but I managed to do some remodelling work to the city of Brickchester.

As you can see there has been work to the main street with many small shops added along this area, along with the hospital, to the right on the street is the new entrance to the fairground and the airport.

Showing the remodelled fairground, which has increased the space available within that area.

The airport has had one of the biggest changes, it still has plenty of space for aircraft to land but also a nice area set aside for the ground vehicles.

Here the local news team are interviewing the builders who helped to redevelop the area to maximise the space, but alas they are saying there work isn't done as they have a lot more work to do elsewhere in the city.

Now the local news team have moved on to interviewing the mayor, the head of trains/public transport in the city, and the head of airport management within the city, as without this three approving it, the project wouldn't have gone ahead, though they all do agree some minor changes may be necessary to improve the city further.

Future plans for the city are still being developed, but hoping to bring back a lost industry in the city, that will hopefully improve the economy of Brickchester.

Looking good so far... The larger pics show off so much more detail. (that TV crew look familiar!!) Looking forward to seeing what the "lost industry" might be!!

Thanks for sharing.
