and the copper clad sleepers at each end of the "Moving" baseboard over the fiddle yard were fitted..

Do you reckon one on each side of the joint will be enough? I used to use three but on the MCL I used five for luck.

Great to see the Q-Drivers in use for the first time since about 1997. They don't make 'em like that any more (same applies to the train).

The lid moves but the track outside doesn't.  I can always add so e more before ballasting it all.

If you run out of dilute pva I've got a spare gallon in the shed from sealing the floor.  Just trying to be helpful.

Ballasting will be revisited..

 

I was concerned that the ballast is too "small".. well

it is .. and so.. despite the use of a spray of dilute IPA and a bit of fairy liquid in the pva/water mix...

It is still quite "dusty " and not as even as I usually manage

Further ballasting will now take place tomorrow all being well.
