That cutting is going to be a great photo point.
I agree! I really like the shot of Sammy with the timber wagons...

Glad you liked the article Mitch - it seems like a long time ago now! Which it was, I suppose...

All the best,

Andrew.

Indeed it is grant! Took about 6 months to level it enough that manual locos can go through it ok, been a pain to get it working but that’s the fun of Garden railways !, working in real conditions.
