That's looking good!

Muddy, but good...

Another option re the station building/sidings thing might be to put the station and sidings on the other side of the line, ie the opposite side to the shed, so that you see the back of the building from the usual viewing spots? Less conventional from a traditional garden railway perspective, but nothing wrong with that...

Looking forward to seeing further progress and "first train " pics in due course...

All the best,

Andrew.

Thanks for all the positive feedback. I'm still toying with my track plan, but then that's the joy of this hobby. My last tweak moved the turn table to the entry point of the station, but I'm not sure..

We did get out and really started to sort out the levels today, more tomorrow. I love it when it's cold but sunny.

"about level" was the best I achieved !
I managed to get some sections dead level, in other places I'm sure the ground moved when I wasn't looking.
Eventually decided a spirit level makes it look worse than it is !

Well done on getting your station site leveled - it looks very promising, with plenty of space to ensure interesting operations and scenery...

All the best,

Andrew.

Thanks everyone. I need to get the main loop in action first, then I'll start with some concrete in the first section and see how it goes. At least that will give us an idea and a new siding.
