Yes indeed Jon, but Gwyneth is adamant that there will be no Garden Railway. She’s tolerating my building kits and refurbishments to the extent that I have taken over the conservatory as my workshop.
Would you like to make a few kits for me Paul?

I don't seem to gave the time atm....

You'll have to brush up on your Stealth Tactics, one of the garden railwayer's main skills

Had a Parcel Force delivery at 07:14 this morning.. We were out delivering the papers, so it was left on the front doorstep, with a 'green-waste' wheelie bin pushed-up against it..

Looked most odd, when we returned from the round..

:clap::clap: To all those delivering, at the moment! :clap::clap:

Box unpacked:-

I have stone walls, a water tower, a ground level signalbox and platforms.
First task is to wash all the mouldings and then let them dry.
Second task will be to prime and undercoat the mouldings.

The new Signalbox for the CFR gets its name board:-

Very Cool, I am really enjoying watching the progress with your project Casey. A great effort with promoting our hobby to the public. You have given me some inspiration to complete some of my buildings I started a while ago.

Casey
Is this Great work being done @ your temp. housing ?
Indeed it is Sean. But I’ve just been informed that the latest buildings need to join the others back at the CFR along with some of my tools. I don’t want to push my luck, there will be some more buildings to do in a week or so. :)

Temporary site for the new station. Another Signalbox will be required to replace the St Bernards one.

That turnout on the upper level must scare the daylights out of the engineer! Is that a washout, or the future site of a purpose built culvert?

Greg. Part of the embankment fell away during track modification. It will be reinstated as soon as possible.
