St juliot is all packed up for its (her) trip to Utrecht. Cleaned, checked and tested; wrapped in a cloth that will become a sheet to hide the 'legs' (all very Victorian). There is a note on the package telling me the lights are inside! Needless to say the van travels in the bag... but is good for scaling the picture for display in Utrecht. I shall have to see if someone can print off some pictures of the package on the Eurostar when I get there!


This now stands against a pile of other bits to go in the bag. Other items are still on the bench. Some slight reworking of the running gear to drop the ride height of the coaches a fraction went well and they should receive their springs and steps today. A Road Van or two need to be sorted (i.e. more finished!) and making the tender frames for the Ilfracombe Goods are the target of things to be done between know and the 20th. That is in addition to laying the track on my grandson's layout in SW London and getting started on some other baseboards (two at 4ft x 2ft) I have promised a fellow for half-term.
