Thanks Lez, I fancied a total change again for this one, ..

 

The Kings Mill go a bit stale?

It's all that time it spends in the van between bakery, distribution depot and shop.

Thanks Bob, All is now quite good, and I'll soon have something running on here and it'll be worth popping over for a Brew for mate.

 

Cheers.

Quite a relaxing morning in TOPS today, and finally finished laying the Fiddle Yard Tracks.

 

Not sure yet about the position of the Prodigy, I may even switch to the ACE SignaTrak which is over on SMS at the moment.

That is the 46 inch Swivelling Sector Fiddle Yard beyond the Tunnels at that end Trevor.

No, I am not sure if I do. If we are talking card games, not true for all.

Several Yards of wiring to do next, plus I'm looking at adding the ends of a Platform coming out from under the Road Bridge, aka George's Grundy Street and Hugh Flynn's classic Sheffield, as I picked up another 150 DMU from Rails second hand Emporium yesterday.
This gives me Regional Rails 150/0, a 150/1, and a 153 for the Passenger services through New Mills now.

Oh yeah, I forgot that Mike, but it's all the silly short bits at the ends of the Fiddle Yards, and the 13 Fiddle Yard Tracks, and the Programming Track and the Points and Colour Light Signals etc.

Still I can always get high on solder fumes. haha.:D

I've fitted a chip into the New 150 this morning and gave that a small test, and then lined them up for a Photo call.

I've also made up the shelf for the Lever Frame, leaving room for a second one if I add more Signals etc.

 

And then made a unit to hold the Controller, it just lifts off when not in use so I don't walk into it.

One slight change to the original Plan is now to incorporate the ends of New Mills Station Platforms, as per George T's Grundy Street and Hugh Flynn's Sheffield Exhibition Layout. This will now give the DMU's and Parcels 128 a reason to stop for a while.

Excellent and masterful work Andy really like the concept of this one going to be a busy bit of railway by the look of the plan. It's definitely the fastest build to date:drink_mini:

So is it two buses on the bridge, one blue and one red?
