At long last I have completed building all of the various pits; those inside the roundhouse, the engine sidings, the preparation pits and the ash disposal pits, a grand total of 33 not including those inside the workshop.
The brasswork of the ash disposal pits has now been sprayed with halfords grey primer which makes it possible to photograph them without the glare from the metallic surface. I have added a number of track rivits to the surface of the brass especially near the board joints in order to give a secure attachment for the track at these positions.
The final task before track laying is to spray the other outside pits with primer and the weather them. I will prime them in the morning.
Here are some photos taken this evening. You can see the position of the Barrow Road arches which cross over the shed end of both ash pits.
Now I must take a look at the signal box!
