  1. Southern Visitors Several Southern visitors arrived today with David, but we couldn't persuade all of them to cooperate nor pose for the camera. But here are some that did both of those things. First it's King Arthur Class "Sir Meliagrance". He was a rather disreputable knight who had a crush on King Arthur's queen Guinevere and kidnapped her, before meeting a very sticky end from the sword of Sir Launcelot. But the loco runs well. Here showing the Drummond tender with which the Eastleigh Arthurs began their careers:

  2. For anyone in the future building these viaducts. I built half a dozen or so with the saw and rasp method. Then I came across 127mm diamond hole cutters. Gives a perfect arch when you clamp all the blocks together. Unfortunately the best method for cutting the support was a diamond tipped bandsaw blade. I was quoted £150 for that so I bought 2 block saws instead 😂.

  3. With waiting on the opportunity to get more plywood for the passing loop station I've been concentrating on the boards off the decking and starting to get those covered and track pinned down. So the board for the main running line to go around is cut to shape and braced underneath. To keep it in place there is a prong that goes off under the sidings board and a small prong that comes out from the sidings board. This meant I could finalise the bracing on the sidings board and pin down the roofing felt neatly. I've then finalised the positions of the points and track to the two main sidings

  4. I recovered the bridge that was smashed by the cat. By cannibalizing some of the segments that were most severely damaged, the rest could be easily repaired. In addition, the embankment was built a little further. Unfortunately, the weather is pretty bad for May, so I'm not really making any headway.

  10. I've made some progress, but now it's raining again. I already worked on a four-track bridge modeled on the Viaduc de Commelles between Paris and Lille.

  11. Have two lengths of flexi track to complete the first station module, I be working on the next two modules that make up the station complex before I start work on the bus wiring, doing the wiring different to make it easy to trace if I have an issue on the block . The first pic I have the first reverse loop in place, the other be on the last station module, I am making the most of the nice autumn weather, no rain for a week, so full steam ahead, might even be able to run a test loco from the the front platform track to the real platform track. I think I will be powering the single an

  12. There's news from my bridge. eBay Global Shipping delivered these to Canada. And instead of bringing it back and delivering it to me, ebay stubbornly stood up to the seller and lied to me. The seller has now had it transported back from Canada at his own expense and will now forward it to me. And then we will try to get our money back from ebay.
