The mainline points are now fully operational. As I thought, it was a bent pin in the 21 pin connector taking power across the boards.

The track crew are now hard at work replacing a damaged section of track so that the up line can be reopened 😋

British Rail (WR) are pleased to announce that normal services have been restored on the mainline at Weston.



Class 42 Dragon passes light engine over the newly laid track on the "up" line, whilst a class 33 with a newly acquired set of four SR mk1s (a recent bargain for just £25 on eBay) passes on the "down". Shortly afterwards a 22 passes overhead on the branch line with a short train of Collett coaches on a local.

Doing a bit of setting up and test running ahead of grandson visiting tomorrow.
He always says "choo choo trains grandad" and I've had to disappoint him for the last two visits as things were in pieces.
He hasn't seen the new layout yet. I thoughts I'd take advantage to make a couple more short videos......



Expresses going a bit too fast, sorry, but brief glimpses of my new Thompson and Collett full brakes, bought from the N gauge stand at the Peterborough show.



Slowed them down a bit this time. Can you spot the deliberate mistake?

Really excellent Mike.
Not sure of the mistake, is it to do with the red stuff in those last two wagons?
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

The red coach with the GWR coaches?
You know you're getting older when your mind makes commitments your body can't meet.

Should that milk tank be at the rear of the train?

Iím not sure about itís positioning within the train, but I understand that milk tankers were often tacked onto passenger trains due to their perishable nature.

Well, possibly 😋
I know that later whole postal trains were put together. I donít know about the 50s/60s. Farish only do the one type, although there is a b version now with a different running number. I just tack mine onto express trains until somebody tells me different  :smiley-laughing:

I've started on the complete refurbishment of Weston.
The first building that had to go was this Ratio diesel shed, much too modern for my era!



Four days of pretty much continuous all day modelling has seen the emergence of this much more suitable shed....



It is four Scalescenes kits put together. The beauty of Scalescenes is you pay once, and print as many as you like  :D

Oh yes, but unfortunately I only have one pair of hands  :D
There is another horrible modern building next to the engine shed that has to go first.
At least the low profile backscene buildings are free standing and can just be taken off.
