Good question. The next major project which is well under way is the extension so that we can actually run trains off scene.


We're not too far off, with a few working wednesdays, and some slightly warmer/drier weather I think we could be done within a couple of months. Then we should be able to work a lot more on the scenics.


Chatting with PJH yesterday after the meeting we decided that whilst controlling the trains isn't an issue with the new Gaugemaster wireless controllers we have, we need to work on sending bell signals to those controlling the fiddle yard at the other end of the house to let them know what train headed by what motive power is about to arrive. All good fun stuff..

Before the track gets ballasted we need the point rodding (including facing point locks etc) installed since I think we'll need to be moving a few timbers about to get the rodding alignments we need. Don't forget that PJH wants all this to operate so it does need a great deal of forethought.


And there's also the small task of painting and weathering the rail, chairs and timbers. Perhaps we could tie a ??" paintbruch to each side of your K2? laugh.gif
