Greetings from Witts End:

An overhead shot showing progress on the left hand side:



Including new tarmac drive:



Nick and Eve were more impressed with the DMU weekend than the backpackers:




After the success of the DMU weekend the next event will be a GWR gala.

In the heritage yard there was some discussion about the weeds:



Not a problem the neighbours were having with their new drives:


Although they were told not to park their cars on it for a while.  :)

Excellent progress.
This is coming along very nicely.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Like Weave, this is a layout that I have somehow managed to miss.  ???. It is looking really good. I can not see it mentioned, (if it is, call it a 'senior moment'), but what size is the layout please?

I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.

Hi Dannyboy , itís 150cm x 75cm. Itís an old Ikea desktop that we had going spare. I put all the points  at the front for manual operation.

I would have liked something a bit bigger but was so surprised that SWMBO agreed to a layout in the house, I didnít want to push it.

Donít worry about the senior moment I only put the size in the planning thread and not this thread.

Greetings!

Managed to get some work done on the left hand side of the layout. Just the rear gardens and station car park to sort out next.

It became apparent that not everyone in Witts End was observing National Apron day:



Why are those people wearing aprons?



Meanwhile the Witts End drone captured more evidence that residents were tending their front gardens to the usual high standards:




Even the Signalmen were getting in on the act:

Greetings,

Not much has been happening at Witts End lately, although some people were not happy with the new parking restrictions outside the station.




The station committee decided to introduce a drop off only zone. Additional parking was clearly signposted:




It was decided to postpone the GWR gala until the restored platform fencing has been fitted.

(Apologies for the poor quality photos, couldnít quite get the angle I wanted).

Cheers for now.
