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. 4392BF64-5D0F-45A0-9E66-CB3993428BE3.jpeg 417B1194-4078-440C-89B2-581D6EB77DD7.jpeg

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 20200801_185849.jpg

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

So not a lot happing this week on the garden railway, but did manage to get this off ebay never seen one before so had to have it and it was santa fe so matches the new loco nicely. I haven't had any USA trains kit before I am very impressed with the quality. IMG-20200812-WA0010.jpeg 20200812_203955.jpg 20200812_204002.jpg

So had to have a reorganisation of the station due to the acquisition of a freight shed all i need to do is put lights in the station at its new location. 20200830_172649.jpg 20200830_172637.jpg 20200830_173528.jpg
