  1. Worsley Dale is officially open for 2021! Tracks were cleaned and cleared early today and power was applied shortly afterwards. I was immediately greeted with a short circuit! There's nothing really complicated on Worsley Dale, it's little more than a circle of track so what could possibly be the problem? I checked from one end to the other and found nothing amiss so it wasn't something just across the rails so that leaves just the two sprung points which each have frog juicers fitted. I should really have removed them before winter set in but they are housed within plastic boxes, cushion

  2. More progress work on the bridge gluing the port side window panel in place, I need to finished the window sill starboard side before cutting out the front window panel which has 8 windows to cut out, getting pretty good cutting the windows out , a sharp kniffe blade is needed . I buy a pack of 10 blades at Big W like Kmart. Our days are starting to cool down now, in the 30's and high 20's can't wait to get back to the layout build , full swing making the most of the cooler weather. The bridge is now glued to the roof of the front accommodation decks, it actually lifts out wont

  3. You've made a great job of that bridge - it really does look the part. Very nicely painted!

  4. Spring Greens After a month of cold and then wet, our weather hasn't been great until very recently. So I needed to seize the moment in today's sunshine and decided it felt like a day for running Southern Region branch line trains, using the N Class and the BR Standard 2-6-4 tank. Here are some of my many photos.

  5. Sun is out - lets play 🚆 Ive got to admit, running the OO today felt a bit of a chore at times - I hope that passes 🙁 I don't know if it's that I've got so much stock it's a faff getting it all out and then putting it away again or the slightly less forgiving nature of the smaller scale for needing clean and well tidied track. Or, it might just be that I'm tired and not feeling very good after having my first CV19 jab.

  6. Sure does Mick. Touch wood we've had a good enough run of weather to be able to get 80% of what I wanted done. Last 20 or so connector wires to go but we're now at a stage where we can run locos! Also decided to get rid of the point just after entering the garage and opted for a nice 3rd radius sweep instead. More reliable and gives more room for my station building. Before and after

  7. It does feel like it's been a long winter this time doesn't it? Hopefully the worst is now behind us for another year but it is still early and there's chance we might get another cold snap but let's hope not. We've suffered enough this past year. It's been good to get outdoors and I'm glad you've found the time to do so too. It's nice to get on with something and maintenance, whether necessary or not, always makes you feel good. Look forward to seeing some outdoor running on the Pickle Line real soon.

  8. Mick, My friend Jannie in York just sent this photo, which looks rather like your layout so may have been taken on Skew Bridge:

  9. I've picked up a Ryobi One+ percussion drill from B&Q. It was on offer with two batteries, charger and case. I'll see how this goes and then may get the lawnmower as the batteries fit the whole range.
