Had to catch up from pag. 117, thanks for all the lovely updates.

Thanks Maurits. I see you've got 126 buildings to make. At my present rate of progress I'd be 140 years old before I completed that many!

A different view of the village today, looking down from the north end and showing both front and back gardens of the cottages just behind the station.



I think one of the kids in the sand pit has spotted the drone!

Here's another shot of my new Castle, this time passing the goods shed.

I'd almost forgotten about those train spotters back in reply 1880 (https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=38682.msg577938#msg577938). One of them has got bored and gone home (or perhaps his mother got wise to his absence from school). In truth he fell over and I couldn't persuade him to stand up again despite several tries with the tacky wax. Anyway, his mates finally get to see the Castle.

Something I've been meaning to do for ages is add warning signs at the ends of the platforms deterring passengers from crossing the tracks. And finally I got around to doing it. Mind you, the print is so small I can't read it! There's something else new in this picture, too.

Splendid photograph, thank you, Roger.

Many apologies if my memory has failed, but I don't recall seeing that 'Standard 4' mogul before.  It certainly looks good at the head of that local passenger train.

Best wishes.

A lovely pic of a smashing loco (I have 2) but sadly accentuates the missing buffer detailing.
Either that or Blind Pew has been dishing out black spots again as he is wont to do ::) ;)

Don't worry, John, your memory isn't playing you tricks! I didn't want the Castle travelling from Yorkshire to Sussex unaccompanied - it's not exactly a familiar route for it! So I arranged for some company for it on its journey. More pics to come.

I haven't tackled the bits and pieces pack yet, Mick. I think it's best to make sure there are no problems with a new loco before doing anything to it but I did want to get some photos of the beast.

Another great photo Roger  :D :thumbsup: :D

I always look forward to your photos appearing, and thank you for your photography tips on the "photographing your layout " thread.

I know what you mean about not being able to read the signs. A while ago I was adding some signs, and it was only when I saw the photographs I realised a good few of them were upside down  ;) :-[ ;)

All best wishes

Kevin
