A bit of track bashing and fitting this evening, and after a bit of fiddling, the plan was executed, despite the change in geometry enforced by the change from Code 80 to Code 55. There's a bit of a wiggle in the loop line to enable the crossover to the Up Main to flow smoothly, and as a result, there's a sharper-than-intended curve into the MPD line, but that can be eased when the rest of the track is replaced.



...and mission accomplished as regards the storage siding - there's ample room for a 59' three-set, and if the coaches are set hard against the buffer stop, a 63' three-set can be accommodated.



Next step, lots of holes to be drilled for the electrical wiring, then the track can be stuck into position...

Thanks for the update. A nice rake of SR livery Maunsells. What will the station pilot be?

Thanks for your reply. I have still to order my Union Mills T9 and 'Black Motor' 700 Class 0-6-0 but will do, soon, so I hope to have them DCC-fitted and at Cant Cove, next Spring. I look forward to seeing your train running, again, soon.

Do you know anyone who will repaint, add lining transfers, new numbers and, where relevant new nameplates, to BR SR steam loco. models? I have an old Graham Farish Bulleid Light Pacific that needs some attention. Its previous owner started work on it but one side needs redoing and both sides need BR lining added. (I know the new Bulleid Light Pacifics are due and plan to buy one but I want to keep my existing fleet and detail them.)

Maybe Gideon would take this on as a commission, Chris :hmmm:

Thank you, both. Please, PM me, Gideon, for the details. It's an old Graham Farish unrebuilt Bulleid Light Pacific that has been part 'converted' to 34002 "Salisbury", in its mid-1960s condition in BR Late Crest Lined Green livery fitted with AWS and BR speedo and attached to a cut-down 4,500-gallon tender. 34002 lasted until April 1967. "Salisbury" is a favorite of mine because it hauled the 'Cornubian', a special run by the RCTS/Plymouth Railway Circle, to commemorate cessation of steam operation on the Cornish Main Line, on 3rd May 1964. My model of 34002 is, currently, awaiting, first, DCC-fitting.
