Just getting the new layout finished off, there’s been some worried people at the club, one week ago it was bare boards and a bit of track. In total it’s taken about 4 weeks to build broken up over eight weeks.

Bit of a contradiction there Richard?

 

Or is it an oxymoron..............?

 

BTW, I don't mean Richard is a moron - far from it!

Final testing before the layouts debut. A China clay stained 08 on shunting duties traversers the three way point into the yard.
