In this video I complete the Church School that I have been scratch building, and get it on to the layout with its light on.  I also complete the scenic work around it, and reveal the mystery building that I mentioned in the previous video.  I always say that I am so grateful for comments on the video and this week a comment from a subscriber helped me to avoid a near disaster in the build of another part of the layout.

In this video I show the work to complete the incline and additions to the Coal Stage to allow me to get two wagons up the incline and into the unloading bay.  You also get a glimpse of the new Farrish Jinty, which followed me home from Harburn Hobbies earlier this week.

Over the last two weeks I have been completing the installation of the incline for the Coal Stage.  With that in place I have tackled replacing my duff turntable and installing the line that runs beneath the Coal Stage and two line to a Engine Shed.  i have also acquired from eBay an excellent Peppercorn A1 which is not Tornado, DCC ready, which is seen in the running session.  Finally I have looked again at the design for High Elven so that can start work on the raised section and the branch terminus. And so far no a virus in sight - Stay safe everyone.

After much prevarication, and lots of changes of track plan, the work to build High Elven station, the branch terminus has begun.  I also talk about an act of generosity by a subscriber who has sent me something that will be a real feature in the MPD.

In the latest update I found myself unexpectedly kit bashing a Metcalfe kit I bought by mistake.  I hope it will turn our to be a happy accident.  I also install the ash pit that was donated to be me by a subscriber.

I have been having fun converting a Metcalfe Engine Shed kit into a terminus station for the Branch with its train shed.  In doing so I used for the first time the tiles kit from York Model Rail.  I am very impressed with it, even if my skill in its use need improvement.

In the last couple of weeks I have been able to build the Goods Shed and to start laying out the track and buildings for the branch terminus.  I have learned that trying to paint white over a very dark grey is an interesting enterprise.  I also bought a new helmet magnifier with which I am very impressed.  Finally I reveal what the next scratch build is to be.

In the first June update I carry on the work of laying track for the branch terminus. I also talk about a new gimbal To help in filming the videos. I have started the process of converting a design for a scratch built signal box from 00 to N gauge and start work in constructing a key part of the build

Having finished throwing my tools around, I was able to get on with laying the track for the terminus station and its Goods Yard including fitting the point motors and running them from an accessory decoder.  I also fund the software I needed to be able to us my train cam again.  Apple (and not Windows as I said in the video - what was I thinking?) stopped supporting 32 bit software with the most recent update and the AVI codec my train cam used was no longer supported.  But, hurray, with the conversation software I can use it again, especially on running shots.  I have also included a short clip on the conversation of a plan for a OO scale signal box to N scale.  Finally I show the benefits of vernier callipers.
