Finally got round to using the airbrush to weather the track and start the ballasting on the section between Walnut Grove and Digby Junction.

I have also positioned some dummy point motors, one can be seen centre left. Ballast yet to be glued down, but temperature in the loft means only short periods of work are possible.

Since the last post I have had a change of career, after 32 years as a teacher, I wanted to do something different, so now I work as a delivery driver. I enjoy it, but it has reduced the amount of time I spend on the layout. 

That said, I have been working on the tunnel section for the branch line under the mainline between Digby Junction and Walnut Grove.

Still more work to be done, but first I need to complete the raised section carrying the mainline, which is taking time, although I am enjoying building the Metcalfe kits for this!

I find it totally different, most of the time it is me on my own with the occasional interaction with a customer. I am thoroughly enjoying the change at the moment, even with the wonderful variation in the weather, a wet and miserable day today, a few weeks ago it was extremely hot!

Rather a long time since I last posted on here. Work has continued at a snails pace, slowly working on different aspects, trying to get the mainline reconnected so I can give the track a proper test. As I have not got all of the things I need to complete this yet, I have been slowly building up the scenery side of the layout.

Developing the autumnal theme for the layout. This shows the branchline where it becomes single track.

There has been more work, but the photos seem to want to load upside down! I will sort those before sharing.
