Just realised how long it is since I posted an update on here. Needless to say work has been progressing at a slower pace than I would like but given it is getting to well over 30 deg C by 11am it's not really condusive to getting lots done. So much of the ballasting is now complete and polyestyrene is being cut to form basic hills. The main stumbling block to getting the ballasting finished as trains running again is bridges. I need to finish some (well quite a few actually). Anway here is the current state of play of three that have been in progress for quite a while.

1. The Hornby suspension bridge for the branch line, modified for double track and shortened.

As you can see not yet finished but getting there. This photo shows it drooping a bit in the middle as I haven't inserted the aluminium support bars yet.

2. The girder bridge for the east coast main line (will be in front of the suspension bridge).

I think this is OK now although it needs weathering.

3. Girder bridge taking the branch line over the main line after leaving the station.

Needs painting and weathering.

So hopefully by the end of August I will have the last of the backdrops fitted and these three bridges in place if not fully finished with the scenics around them.

Love the modification to the Hornby suspension bridge, I always wanted one when I had my layout as a child!

Can't believe I have photo of the week. Thanks for that - better get on and do some more on the layout. Been back to the UK for a couple of weeks so nothing to show just yet but did go in the car so a boot full of goodies. 80m of plaster bandage, paints etc and some picaxe chips for programming signals. Don't think the boss has quite twigged just how much of the boot full was mine.

It's a dangerous thing going back to UK in a car Dave - it's funny how things just seem to mount up in the boot.

I'm flying back next month - for that very reason !!!  Every time I go by car, REsolve seems to DISolve and I end up having to eat  bread and water for 3 months after I get back ...............................

Well not quite finished the way I want it yet but getting there. The suspension bridge is now finally in position and just needs track ballasting and scenics around it. The girder bridge can now be fixed and sealed in place ready for the water. Think I will do a trial piece first as I haven't done water before - picked up mod podge in the uk for ripples afterwards as seen on Chadwick Model Railway on youtube.



Switching between different jobs as and when I feel like it so progress in various places. Walls being sorted on the main scenic leg along with much cutting of polystyrene and plaster bandage work. I think I need to do a work plan for the next few weeks as I have members of the model railway club from down near the coast coming up in November and I would really like trains running again by then.
