I’m happier with the spiral now that I’ve got a proper bridge in place. The foam board arrived last week so that I can produce another Garsten engine shed as per the pic below.
I kept the doors off the old shed....

Seeing as it is 'three-blocks?' high, I am sure the clearance will be enough, but it does look a bit tight? - Do you have anything with a pantograph?

It’s all good Phil. No leccy locos here so pantos are not a problem.
just enough clearance for Mike’s Aster Mallet to go under.

Really taking shape already, Paul. Looking forward to a few of your atmospheric photos appearing before long.

They are indeed Gizzy - possibly the longest serving wagons on the LGB.
Getting a bit battered now - missing uprights and missing grab handles.
They have also had the coupling hooks adapted with zip ties - the Hartland "springs" relied on the plyability of soft plastic which eventually hardened.
Metal wheels fitted as standard too.

I thought as much?

I brought a few from the Conwy Model Shop when Mizzy and I were on holiday a few years ago.

We'd won a holiday on the Flying Scotsman a few years ago, so I brought 2 to put in my suitcase, and had the other ones posted on.

I've metal wheels on mine too, but I've not had to modify the couplings as yet....

The recreation of Garsten engine shed is progressing nicely.
I’m sure I’ve got some doors and windows in my spares box somewhere.
Need to get some paint for it next.

I’ve still got loads of track left from the indoor and outdoor layouts.
Will have to mull over where to extend the layout to.......

Presumably the latest domestic authority is ok with your land grabs?

The domestic authority (Susan and me) have no problem with extending.

One thing I learned from LGB1 was that there is a point where if there is too much preparation involved before you have a running session, you run far less.
(weeds, leaves on the line, track cleaning, points maintenance, etc)

I have no desire to fill the whole garden with a railway - way too big !

Garsten shed reborn.
Ready for painting and weathering. Made from foam board like the last one except white not black.
