Stour valley dream - Popping more cork and a guest NG locomotive

Fen End Pit

521 views

An hour on the lasercutter this morning allowed me to mark the trackwork for the fourth baseboard onto 6mm cork. The marking out was pretty much perfect but I over-cooked it on the cutting power. Cork cuts really quite badly and you need a lot of power to go any distance into the material with the corresponding charring.

Marking out the cork this way does allow you to make sure you correctly get the flow of the track.

My Claud (D16/3) waits patiently for some more track before proceeding to Long Melford!

As a break from the sensible standard gauge a trip to Thelkeld out of season meant that Sir Tom was not in use. However they were running trains and we had a ride behind this rather nice Hunslet.
