Update.
The sundeala has been cut to shape and now the rubber underla has been cut to fit the boards. Next stop - loosely laying the track to see where the points motors (Seep) will fit and then make up the framing for the sundeala boards avoiding the point motor holes.

It's going to be magnificent when it's finished. Mind you, it will take you a while.

Good work

The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

Quick update - no pics worth taking yet.
The upper level tracks/fiddle yards have been completed.
No power yet but I couldn't resist the temptation to run a loco back and forth for about 9ft and, okay, it was one of my smoothest runners (Farish Western), but the rubber certainly gives excellent sound deadening.
I did resist the temptation to connect more up and have a good play :angel:

Nice to see you've made a good start, looking forward to seeing its progress, looks promising, you'll just have to take early retirement so you can crack on  ;D   ;D   ;D

As previously reported the upper level fiddle yards were finished last weekend.



Tonight I have been messing about with the station design. I have abandoned the all singing, all dancing 4 platform face etc station I had planned as it was not really in keeping with a single track branch line. I guess this version probably won't last either, but I like it at the moment
