Hi George I have just caught up with your layout build and the building of your diesel loco and wagons. It’s all great work mate and I enjoyed the video. Thanks for sharing. :thumbleft:

Evening all,

With todays advent of good weather I decided to venture out into the garden. I cleared most of the leaves off the railway and other basic maintenance. There has always been 2 types of ballast at St Kew Highway due to the availability of one stopping :cussing: . This was fixed today by changing all the ballast to one type; giving the railway a much more uniform look .The other areas were toped up as well while I was at it. The signal box will return in the spring.

George

That's looking really good - I particularly like the triangular platform, very nice... I wish my garden was looking as tidy at the moment!

Cheers,

Andrew.

Looking good, particularly given the time of year.

Looks like a lot of hard work as gone into keeping the line nice and tidy. :thumbright:

Thanks everyone. We've had a couple of ok weather days recently so I managed to tidy up a bit and I didn't take photos of the messy bits :thumbleft:

After all the indecision on livery I've decided that the IP engineering roundhouse coaches I was re-painting are too big for my railway so I primed them today so someone else can add their own livery more easily. They have been sold to another forum member who already has a couple so here is what they look like now............
