I often think that when looking on the webcam at the trackwork at Grosmont Station that if I reproduced that trackwork on my layout in that Grosmont condition I could save myself all the hassle of ballasting.

 

Just filler and some black weathering powder, and maybe some yacht varnish for the pools of water. (AM)

Watch out for the bridge coming in at about half 4.

 

I think the driver on that is mark wetherill who was a paid guard on the moors in the early 80s

I *just* caught the end of it I think - empty flat wagon of some kind? I'm guessing this is the new bridge 27?

No, met him several times since though, he's a regular to the NYMR with ballast trains & bridge trains etc.  i know Gordon, not seen him for quite some time know.  I seem to remember his wife used to work in the Tea Room in Pickering.

There is a "real" train parked at Goathland. As you suggest loaded with bridge bits of various types on BDAs with flats as under runners, and loaded SPA. Looks to be easily viewed across fields yesterday (I was on Santa special hauled by 9F Rudolph with a class 37 at the other end).

They're Back :dance_mini:

Nothing will be happening on the railway for a while, but it's good to have at least one piece of normality returning.

In theory you should see the schools dotting about tomorrow on and off from about 945 stretching its legs.
