I hope the installation was suitably celebrated :beers: The wine rack looks good.
You are now getting dangerously near testing trains time. Looking forward to seeing that. :thumbsup:

Oh yes :) :beers:  I am looking at where I could put a mini fridge :)  will need to wait until all the boards are built with the relevant pull out bits to see what under-board space I an left with.  The rack is an old artefact from the labs at Grangemouth refinery.. I managed to rescue it from the skip about 20+ years ago - it was the rack the glassblower used to store all his bits in... back in the day when chemist's designed their own apparatus and there was a glass blower on hand to make it!

It looks a lovely bit of furniture. Just right for keeping all those little things that have a tendency to grow legs and disappear.

Really coming on fast now, Andrew. I will write about the Chelsea Girls highly enjoyable Scottish stay, later. Now, I'm trying to postpone everything that does not have to be done immediately so as to get on with Cant Cove.

More baseboard progress to report, this board will be the PRPS station/HQ



And finally for this corner, the board that will carry the PRPS hidden storage sidings



This is the other bit of the PRPS HQ where the visible sidings will be, I had to move the storage shelves from it's earlier ideal position due to a wee "oversight"!



.... and here is that oversight... In an earlier post I showed the position of the boards down the long edge at the same height, but forgot I wanted a drop in the scenery... so when I re-adjusted them the board was too low for the cubby hole unit to sit underneath  :doh:  it was a shame as it was the only place I had enough space between the sockets.  I will also need to rebuild them wider though, so the boards could can the lines that run down to the storage sidings on the refinery board



I was looking for that scalpel for ages!

Thanks Chris & Derek, very satisfying to be at that point finally

But there was still some work to do on the outside, but it is almost there - roof material trimmed and wedged + a rain diverter added



You can see here the wider board for the dropped section & starting to think about the surface layer



And the refinery board makes it's debut

Do you know, I've always wondered what those things on my wagon roofs were? Now I know!   :-[

Thanks!  :beers:

No worries - it could do with being a bit lower down, but it is well fixed down, so won't be moved, but it does make a difference to the amount of rainwater that drips down over the doorway on a typical summers day in Perthshire

But your post has got me thinking, time to start hunting for a small thermostatic heater!

Yes, with autumn (alas) fast approaching, fitting a thermostatic heater is a very good idea. You also need to have its cable installed out of the way of the railway layout.

Coming along very nicely.  :thumbsup:

Just a thought but with all that rain you mentioned, would humidity also be a bit of a challenge? A portable dehumidifier may be an option to consider.
