Work has been progressing on the track to the south of Wigan. Five points have been added, giving access from Wallgate to the main line and from the mainline to the Atherton line, plus one to form the crossover from Down Fast to Down Slow.

I've started to add in the curved tracks for the mainline and have been test running as I go with a CL68, a Pacer, and a Pendolino.

Here are some pics.

Looking south at the crossover from Wallgate to the mainline.



And the crossover from the main to the Atherton line



And the curves taking shape before the next sets of points.





Once the main is finished it will be out with the plaster bandage to form a surface on the Woodland Scenics risers used for the incline on the Atherton line
and on the line leading from the fiddle yard.

Regards,

John P
