I wondered where the workforce had gone instead of point building for me!! Nice work Andy, looks good - the paving slabs are particularly effective... no bus? Presume its one of the three that will be along shortly :P

 

Rich

The first Bus crashed into a Big Hole that the Workforce had dug in the wrong place.

The second bus was diverted and accidentally went under a Low Bridge.

And the Last Bus is still in the Depot as the Driver was on the first Bus that went down the Hole in the Road that should not have been there.:)

SO,,,,, there would be No Point in you looking for the Workforce to build your Point, as they were busy filling in Holes that should not have been there, and propping up a Bridge that was lower than the 2nd Bus, and waiting for the 3rd Bus to get to you that was still in the Depot waiting for the Driver that was still on the first Bus sitting in a Hole in the Road.:o:D

To fill in the Ballast, so he can step over the Rails.

Haha, I started it the day after returning from Bala, on 14th Nov 2019, but the Track was laid and lifted several times before getting the right plan, and apart from the pavement, which is now done, it was finished by Christmas.

I also enjoy using it, so it won't be sold just yet I don't think.

With regard to the last sentence I'll believe it when you've had it for a couple of months.....:D

Another Photo shoot this morning has produced some good results, this camera does seem to produce some far better images I think.

Yo Andrew

 

Have you seen all those pretty coloured class 66s that Horny are going to make? A set of them on whatever layout you are building when they arrive would look good.

Yeah but, ''A'' There Hornby, so are Ex Lima in all but Motor, and still no lights I believe, and ''B'' far to new for my Era mate, it would be like sayin you could run VIrgin Voyger as its a DMU on your Train Set.;)

Yes but, no but, not for this train set but another one in the future where lots of pretty coloured sheds might be to your liking.

 

As for your suggestion about a virgin Voyger....what is one of them?

 

I am all excited about a BR class 2MT 2-6-0, a Coronation Scot coach, an FK maybe and a BR Mk1RB. But not the only green diesel, the Brush Type 2 I have enough of them.
