  1. This layout WILL get built, besides, I don’t need many wagons... Mind you, when the Ransomes & Rapier crane arrives, that may well be a distraction - particularly the re-wheeling...
  2. Here’s a butty being towed by a motor boat on a long rope https://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/3843951

  10. And finally the third of the fiddleyard points also has a full compliment of sleepers stuck down.
  11. Mean while back on the layout, a little more progress, I’ve glued down the point timbers on the main board.
  12. Ok Looks like I’m going to have to imagine what the box looks like...
