Amazing progress in a couple of months! Got to figure how to incorporate my shed into the layout. But first I have to clear the junk out of the garage so I can move the junk in the shed!

So with the nights closing in by the time I get home from work progress has really been limited to the weekend. But nevertheless progress has been made I have ballasted the track to hide the bricks, put a few more plants in and even got a station after persuading (nagging) the wife.

Possibly, due the slate chippings you have used a weed suppression? :think:

And a stream of bubbles coming out of the station! :rofl::rofl::rofl:

Hmmmm... Wonder if the 'Diver' figures are anywhere near 1:24?? :think:;)
I am sure someone could make some if not. Maybe this could be an inspiration for a station name.

Yes don't want to be constantly pulling up weeds so a liner was used
All joking aside it's not as blue as it looks, I will be planting more plants to brake it up, but as I know nothing about gardening I am struggling to know what to plant so any suggestions will be much appreciated :)

The new loco looks much better and more at home on your outdoor layout. Glad I could help.
