I have been slowly plodding on with the storage sidings and have now completed turnout 26 out of 39. The main UP and DOWN sidings are finished as far as the track laying is concerned with a number of buffers to be added at a later date. They are not yet operational as the task of wiring and the addition of digital cobalt's is the next item on the schedule after track laying is complete.
Extra sidings are to be installed at either end of the UP and DOWN sidings and the first of these, which leads to the turntable, is nearly finished. This will enable trains arriving in the UP [ the north ] sidings to have their loco detached and turned ready for a return journey.
The following photos show progress over the past month.
