It could be, bit small it actually has the electric points switch in it.
I thought as much?

Nicely done and very much in keeping with your railway....

Your railway seems to offer an unlimited number of good photo locations. A delightful thread to watch!

So there has been some work over the last few day an additional siding has been added in front of the station. All I have left to do is put down some ballast if I can get any and add electric point motors.

Please consider your passengers. How will they walk to/from the station safely now?

Lighting added to the station along with the lit buffer stop. The mogul passes at dusk with the evening freight train.

So over the weekend I have been adding electric point motors to the newly expanded station area, a big thanks to the guys off here who sorted me out with point motors and a switch box. :clap:

Luckily there was a gap in the track bed to run the wire though, here is a video of it all in action.

A rare sight on the railway this afternoon had the hole fleet out so couldn't resist a photo opertunaty. The mallet is a bit of an odd one out these days but in my mind it fits in :D

I'm inclined to call something else the odd one out. (Hint: it begins with "Santa")
