That's a smashing long run for your stock to stretch their legs on :envy:

Track straightened through bookcase end and a small area to try some scenery techniques.

Diverted from work on layout by chance to finally run some of the stock I have been building up for years.

Appropriately enough it's  a diverted sleeper service which won't  run regularly on the branch line but was near the top of the box. Terrible quality video. Sorry.

When you've had nine years to collect and finally  have a track...













And a fiddle yard.

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

Hello Dannyboy.
I've been able to use Peco fourth radius except in fiddleyard which uses Settrack curved points with no problem though I made sure the main running track always uses the outer curve of the point.

Seems like little to show for the last couple of month's. However, I now have a much improved main circuit.  Unhappy with a main line that rose and fell and disappeared under the intended main scenic area I decide to bring it to the front of that board, but slightly below.

That also required the lift out section to be re-engineered with a much reduced gradient, but longer reach to allow for a straight joint.

That achieved the new gradient towards the intended terminus was build.

After that I realised that the new track alignment would allow for some longer storage siding alongside. So more woodwork and track laying.  I've just completed that work and now, finally, can start work properly on the terminus.

Some photos which show the new arrangement:




Showing new route of main line and entries to new sidings before boards replaced.



Scenic boards back on.  New gradient to terminus (line in background); mainline in foreground and end of two of the new sidings.




Main scenic area with main line below.




Extended lift out section heads left. The other two new storage sidings head right with perspex safety barriers.
