Woohoo! Engines running on the new extension!  :bounce:

12' fiddle yard and return ends track laid, and powered up..

My class 20 gets the honour of the first run to test everything.......and it all runs perfectly!



Now comes the more tricky part - building a sweeping embankment to complete the circuits.
I can't wait to see full-length trains charging down the full 14' length  :D

Excuse all the junk scattered around - all our show sales stock has to be kept in the railway room by order of she who must be obeyed (sometimes)...

I have been a very very busy boy!

First the piers were put in place...



Then the embankment top layer added....



Then it was a case of wiring up and......PLAYTIME!



AT LAST I can run my lovely Midland Pullman properly, and big looooooooong trains!
Why? Because I have this superb fiddle yard now.....



Sorry guys, I don't think much will get done now because I will be too busy PLAYING  :D

I made a nice video but for some reason the YouTube server keeps rejecting it and I can't work out why.
I don't know how else to show it. I think I tried hosting on my own server before and the video wouldn't run.
