Well, after a few days of little jobs with soldering irons and paintbrushes, I'm back to the trackbed.

Phase II has officially kicked off today, with the first piece of curved baseboard fixed in place - a few lengths of temporary track at this position previously gave a place for the camera car to start but now it's time to get serious!

The track will be on a slight rising grade to the left, taking the main lines around the short end of the room and then back along the left hand wall passing some carriage sidings on a slightly lower level.

I've been struck down by the dreaded lurgie for the past few days.  Although this has diminished my enthusiasm for model railway progress in general I have, surprisingly, painted a fair bit of track.  I found it strangely therapeutic when clouds of cotton wool seemed to be running riot in my head.

Now I'm four days behind with the turkey leftovers :(

Sorry to hear you've been struck by the lurgie. I think I've been fighting it too but it hasn't developed thankfully.

Time for a turkey curry to help clear the nose maybe?  ;)  :D

The hotter the better. does wonders for getting rid of colds and flu. Medically proven too :food: :)
Hope you're over it quickly.
You know you're getting older when your mind makes commitments your body can't meet.

You and me too.
The lurgy struck both of us on Saturday. Feeling quite unwell but hopefully the worst is now over.
That feeling of cotton wool between the ears is quite unreal.

Post!  Tomytec Building 136 (Warehouse A) for £17.45 plus postage from ebay/PlazaJapan.  (They also do a windowed version as an engine shed which is Building 122-2)

I've bought a couple of these specifically to steal the side walls for low-relief backscene items.  A quick test snap behind a recently chipped Farish 4F shows they're bang on the money for what I had in mind.  I've left the roof off as it's thicker than a nuclear bunker :goggleeyes:
