I've spent work this week. This is the west bank reversing loops. The board goes at the far left of the layout as viewed from the bridge in the background. The board a high and low level reversing loops and storage sidings which will give me storage for between 8 and 16 trains.
The sidings will be hidden beneath a hill side over which will sit the St. Apollinaris Church, when I get round to building it.

I have to agree with Mick your woodwork is superb and the model railway is going to look great when finished.

The trouble with me using a cocked hat is that all my woodwork ends up to Large Chicken :) as well ::)

Thanks for the comments, guys. Baseboard construction is nothing special. In fact as it's meant to be a portable layout it's very much on the heavy side.

Anyway, baseboard construction on hold this week until I can get a few trestles to sit sections on. So I took the opportunity to work on the rolling stock.

This is todays effort. A BR03 + 4 coaches (AB4, I think). Two of the coaches have been modified to take a quad 20mm flak 38 guns (still to be added) and the full rake painted late '44 ambush camouflage scheme.

A bit of weathering and it should look alright.

That camouflage painting is truly superb even better than the excellent trains themselves. If this does not win a prize I'll be amazed. The passing hospital train is an excellent idea, too.

More scenery. This is the tunnel mouth for the upper level reversing loop. Base coated and ready to be installed once the track gets laid.
