Bet your shed's a bit chilly this time of year. Can you operate the trains from behind your French windows? :)

Ya the wireless controller works from inside the house with the base station in the shed so I can stay warm and watch the trains from inside. I did lower the railing on the decking to give me a better view.

I also have a topic entitled "My first garden railway" which was started before yours and I am seriously impressed with the progress you have made. A sudden influx of new grandchildren is one of the excuses but I really need to up my game. Well done to you.

So small update looking for stuff to do now stuck at home found some black paint in the garage so added some soot to the tunnel portholes, quite effective
even if I do say so myself.

Nice clear pond you have there, well maintained by the looks of it.

I can’t take all the credit the uv and filter are one unit and is a bit over kill it is for a pond twice the size but keeps it nice and clear and low maintenance.
