Marty,
        Yep,that's right.There's a door on either end leading to the sub-platform bit where all the clever bits are hidden...the bits that magically make the levers change points and signals,etc.Probably also a bit of a storeroom for lamps and stuff too.
       Once the box is built,I'll need to get cracking on the platform to bed it all in.

Cheers,John.B.:thumbs

Wellllll.......its like this...I haven't done anymore on the signal box this weekend as planned.I spent Saturday helping a family friend sort out some probs on his loft layout...that took a good few hours,and today I turned my attention to mine.
  (I've had a few allignment issues with the track on boards 1&2)
Now all sorted,and awaiting some serious wiring/testing...the upshot being poor old signalbox is on the back burner.(again)
  What's that they say about the best laid plans???:cry:

Cheers,John.B.:thumbs

Know the feeling John.
I'm still trying to get the final photos of the Three Rivers test but by the time I had dealt with the chores, test ridden some motorcycles and then buried myself under the Newcastle Emlyn baseboard rejigging the gradients... it was dark.
Still, we will get there...

Its been a tough couple of weeks for modelling.I've been helping Brian,who's a beginner in his 60's,with his loft layout,SWMBO has had me painting garden sheds and giant sunflowers for the annual church carnival float(the theme is English country garden!),when that's finally done tomorrow(carnival Saturday) I get to begin decorating at the Mother-In-Law's who's just had major building work done on her house.Painting woodwork,wallpapering,fitting floating shelves etc,etc.
  And poor old Perranporth Signal Box with only 3 walls and no roof! Hope it don't rain.or Mr.Miners' head will get wet!:roll::lol::lol::lol:

Tom,
      I've got a 'day off' today,so chance to do a few more bits on the signal box,and maybe even tinker around with the 0-6-2T I'm tartin' up...then tomorrow it's back to the treadmill(decorating at the mother-in-laws)
      Roll on Monday when I'm back at work,and can have a good rest!!!:lol::lol::lol:

Cheers,John.B.:thumbs
