    I have finely started planning my station building, she is 3 feet wide by 30 inches deep, at the stage is 94mm's high be another 23mm's on that, I worked the width of the middle long windows to the width to scale of double sliding doors. Haven't drawn the side windows in yest thinking adding a lower set of windows like the Denver Station , my station is based on the New Orleans Union Station the station that would fit into the area for my building, heaven't drawn the side plan either, to get this far took a couple of nights. Be a while before I start construction on my station, not sure what to build it out of may be MDF board 3 mm thick. The lucky last pics I decided to replace the Electrofrog point with the motor with an insulfrog point, will use the other point some where on the layout , where it is not so hard to pack away, all the modules are now ready to go, won't test run a loco till the control panel is hooked up . I improved the track from the three way to the express point by straightening the track up , looks good. Don't worry about the track being so close to the edge, I have planned for a 6 inch strip of ply with a single track siding for the auto carrier wagon doc at the end of platform one Tony from down under keeping on moving ahead.

    Used to hang wet washing out in Moscow at minus silly temperatures. Within 20 minutes it was solid. Bring it in and stand it in the corner. When it thawed, it was dry. Wife started moving furniture one day and rolled the carpets up. Out into the snow and laid them out. Shovelled snow onto the carpets and brushed it in with a stiff brush. Then hung the carpets over a fence and beat the snow out, before taking them back indoors again. I have never seen such clean and fresh smelling carpets as that day. She did it here in England a few years ago. Into the front garden. Neighbours all thought she had lost the plot.

    Yup, I forget you guys use that crazy new fangled excelsior system. 20 degree Fahrenheit = -6.6666667 degree Celsius just a tad chilly.

    The free standing buildings are all novelty bird boxes and bird feeders. The back scene buildings are all scratch built from scrap plastic I had accumulated. Remember that this is O narrow gauge, so still 16.5mm track but buildings are closer to 1:40 and deliberately cartoon like.

    Just because Napoleon wanted everything in units of 100? No. Bring back Imperial and give the kids some proper mathematics to think about.

    I managed to do some light stuff on Camdale, improving the track and points on the corner spiral module, much better, I actually the track down by starting curve in closer to the edge on of the module, I be leaving the piece of track in that is close to the end of the module pic. Tomorrow I will make a start on shifting the bus wires, drill the new holes for the feeder wires and solder the feeder wires in place, be ready to go, the track to the right is the suburban track extension in stage two and one passing loop for freight trains either way. Start that after I finish laying the track for the terminus platforms five tracks needed. Tony from very hot down under

    Have finished the new center piece of the shell roof , turned out well, if I need to run wires through I can now, tossing If I replace the two ends or have a go at stripping the old paint off, a few layers to tackle, don't want to sand because of where the lights go In the second pic there is a grove line lining up with the walk way I will do the same, yes I will paint the loco in Union Pacific colours to match the DD40/A loco. Get back to the layout next weekend depending on the heat, be light duties finishing the spiral corner module , being a stinker of a summer, my plants are dying lack of rain and me not being here for two weeks , they get a hose this afternoon Tony from down under keeping on moving ahead
