Hi All,

I sent this earlier (or thought I did) but the message didn't appear. Anyway, here's a picture of the finished cement unloading scene, with compressor house and pipework. If you squint, the pipes actually run up into the Lyddle End hoppers. The loco is, appropriately, 37425 "Concrete Bob", wondering where its snowploughs have gone probably.

Best Wishes,
Mat

I am terra-forming the hill at the right-hand end of the viewing section. So far I've got the cutting profile complete and ready for papier-mache. I'm now working on the sunken road and building bases. Then I'll move on to the rest of the land surface.
Pre-Grouping: the best of all possible worlds!

I am trying to cool the shed down ready for our virtual club meeting this evening  so far without success its like a sauna ,far too hot to enjoy (playing ) sorry operating the layout ,at the moment a fan on the floor and up on the end wall an extractor fan going full on , perhaps I should have an ex factory fan instead of an ex tractor fan ,I hope by 8 oclock it will be bearable if not I might have to go upstairs as Val wants to watch the tele and she says I make too much noise .if I am in the back room  .
