After all that, I really didn't feel like braving the Easter throng in York so a quiet Monday has been spent beavering away on the central board. More trackwork has been tweaked and large chunks of what can only be called "overballast" have been removed from rail sides, chairs and between check rails and crossings. Slow tedious work, but oddly therapeutic...
On a lighter note, some fencing has been painted a base brown and planted for future weathering and bedding in. Finally, in the spirit of progress, the plasticard platform top in the loading dock has been removed in readiness for individual edge stones and a filler infill (as per all other hardsurfaces). Oh, I laid and painted that final bit of track missing from the loading dock siding too.
You can see the shiny bits of rail that have been fiddled with. It's worth viewing the picture full size if you can load it without too long a wait.
Sort of stuff that I find quite satisfying; nothing earthshattering but real underlying progress!
