Looking good Paul, I hope that relaid curve hasn't been causing too much trouble. That lovely Roundhouse and Accucraft stock certainly look a lot more at home with the new buildings, they've made quite the difference.

When you're happy to start accepting volunteers again drop me a message, happy to lend a few hours to the cause :)
Thanks for the offer Ricky. We just need the lockdown to ease a little more and for the GCR to start resuming some operations .

All of the continental buildings and the castle have been removed from the CFR.
Some of the buildings have already gone to a new home. The castle is going to a new home tomorrow.
Ive tried putting the other buildings up for sale in the sales section, but I can’t seem to get it right. F9E1E224-118B-4E99-ACAE-FF242A43C539.jpeg 935E6992-50F4-4EB7-9517-C19455AB1A6E.jpeg 6F59CED8-54BA-45F5-B746-22C4FD0106CB.jpeg 238E9241-868C-4612-8268-7EDEE222B87A.jpeg
More British buildings will have to be purchased.

Gizzy, I put the description, pictures and price of articles in the body of the text. I also put for sale and price in the title.
When I post reply I get a message saying I haven’t set a price. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong.

Yes typicical software writers trick (not blaming anyone within the upper towers of the forum) to put critical entry things at the end so that some of us IT challenged bods miss them and get a rejection. Had a similar issue with something I was trying to buy on line the other day. I think it is their way of trying to teach us something.

Good afternoon folks. The CFR is now minus the castle. I took the entire castle to Keele Services to pass it on to its new owner. I have some more money to finance a few more buildings.

Could you post some pics on how the RR/grounds etc. looks now. :)
Sean, the pictures in post #222 show the extent of the CFR as it is now. I will see if I have any other pictures.

Casey,
what are the radii of the curves at each end? Are they your minimum radius?
Thanks, Ken

It’s now mid September and little has happened since my last post. The old control cabin has been removed and I’m now waiting for the contractors to commence phase three of the reconstruction of the railway. I’m also waiting for the electrician to install the permanent electrics in the new control cabin.

The workshop shed needs to be relocated through the brown wooden fence to the right of this picture. A new raised area will be built in the space vacated.

The Welsh Hamlet is taking shape at the eastern end of the railway.
