Having made about half of the total requirement of inspection and preparation pits for the shed I decided to have a break and try something different - after all you can have too much of a good thing!
I have managed to find the whereabouts of a drawing of the hydraulic wheel drop at Rose Grove Shed - I can recommend the National Archives website for those of you looking for original research material -
as I found the set of drawings at Manchester Records Office. They provide a copying service for a price and are sending me a CD of the drawing.
Enough of that and down to business. I have made good progress over the past two weeks on the rear elevation of the shed in preparation for the forthcoming first outing of the layout - this is at the S4 Society AGM in Bristol on saturday the 5th June - only 2 weeks away!!
All the components have been glued and assembled and coloured as per my posts previous posts so here are some photos.
The last photo includes the finished inside wall of this elevation and also the 'Rowmark' window sections all ready to be glued together over this weekend.
