It would look a lot better with the edge next to the cess straightened and neater.

Yes that is the major part of the revisit..as well as the places it has "sunk" between the sleepers. Should be done today all neing well..

Except.. there are other tracks and point operating rodding still to fit.. so I will just tidy up the bits with missing ballast....

best laid plans etc...

 

Instead of tidying the ballast up.. I have been checking couplings... lots and lots of them ... and when I thought I had finished... I found some more.....:o

 

BUT they are just about done now so time to restock the fiddle yard and.. do some more testing......

:D

Where did I get all of these wagons from??

Years of building kits and bodging rtr..that is where. The layout needs a variety of stock...no problem..

 

What I need though is a fruit warehouse as I can run the banana train ex Herculaneum Dock ..it should go to York.. but not in my history of the line..

When you’ve covered the ‘first half million’ you will probably have enough.

stock check completed... wagon count is 548 plus about 50 kits to build/finish.. ooops!

 

I won't need all of the "Spares"  on Leeds London Road...time for a sale perhaps??

 

New Ballast being ordered.. the  granite is not of a consistent size and it is really having a major impact on train noise!

that will get rid of the glue stains- not sure that Railmatch arylics and dilute PVA get on very well!

I had to check out a couple of DCC sound fitted locos today so, while I had the DCC kit out, I plugged it into the layout and listened to Pinza running around the layout with beautiful Deltic sounds... followed by a Brush Type 2 and a Sulzer Type 2... what a difference the sound makes.....

Waste of money. You do your own pretty good Deltic noises (and HSTs).

Another step forward today. A turntable (motorised ) has been ordered for use on the main MPD.  All we need is for some baseboards and track.. but when we get out of Lockdown/Tier 3 it should come together nicely....

Can't you reuse one of the old Leeds Vic etc. t/ts? Or are they all accounted for?

Oh, turntables.

I've still got one (Brunswick shed) and one is now in France (Upperby shed).

I think you'd told me that and I was just winding Baz up (wot, me?). I've forgotten where the third one went though.
