Would the bike be a Bantam? I always wanted one of those in the 60s, but ended up with a Lambretta 250 instead.

Yep. D7 Bantam. Always been a Brit bike fan. Been riding them since I was a teenager.

Is there an 's' or a 't' missing from 'fatest'? :P
I used to get the rip taken out of me as I rode Triumphs which supposedly leaked oil.

Had a couple of Triumphs over the years. Once had a beautiful T150...

Nice bikes Mick, I never passed my test, so was limited to the Lambourne and when that died, a Honda CD175.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

Motorbikes aside. Back to the railway.

Not done much today except apply a bit of paint and give the room a good tidy up. However it feels lie I've made massive progress. Really feel like the layout is starting to come together...  :D

Spent a bit of time making the little barge and access ramp today. This sits on the west bank just down stream of the bridge.

Is that the one 'Angel' (Ben Gazzara) was supposedly thought lost on?

No. This is a small barge for river traffic moor against. It will at some point have a flotilla of e-boats moored to it.

The barge Angel fell off was upstream of the bridge. I not found a good photo of it yet to base a model on.

Scenery is starting to come together on the Erpeler Ley side of the layout.
