Evening all,

Well this is certainly one now on my 'watch list'. Looking great so far, nothing quite like making the most of n with full sized rakes. Watching with interest!

Cheers

Ollie

Hi All,

A bit more work done on the layout this week.

More ballasting and track painting, plus some more work on the platforms.

Platforms 5 & 6 are done for now, and work has commenced on Platforms 1 - 4.

Here are some piccies.

North end



South end



Overall view



And a close up



Nothing is fixed in place yet because

   1) I haven't worked out the best way to do that yet  :doh:

   and

   2) I'm not happy with the bay platforms and they need a bit more work.

The bay platforms are slightly out of true so I'm going to have to force them a little to maintain clearances.

Next up would probably have been the platform buildings but as my research trip has been postponed indefinitely that's going to have to wait.

I did buy some fencing, so next up is to complete the ballasting on the mainline over the flyunder, so that I can do some work on the bridge.

Regards,

John P
