Ahh, a good old ash tree. There was a big one at the old house and it caused a right mess in autumn. Love the viaduct, with the railway clinging to the embankment, rather than passing through the central arch.
Thankyou
it was rather dictated by circumstances, but I prefer it like that too - sort of suggests a river should be down the middle, and I had planned a bit of disused tramway from the quarry down the other side

Countess the green engine back from "Crewe" with improved running 2.4 r/c. Needs its own steam oil. Reminiscent of an Awdry story.
Ran well, 2 runs up and down the highland extension, and a bit of shunting, on one steaming

Out on the line yesterday, 2 in steam with the battery Stainz and tippers doing circuits by itself to add to the variety.
Getting the hang of the Countess now

The two battery rc locos make shunting train load combinations more interesting

not done much on the railway all Summer - other distractions
Went to the Exeter Show to meet up with a friend, though and got a sheep wagon, so ran a train or two in the sun yesterday.
the Highland extension needs some attention, though, leaves, moles and broken sleepers, so all lowland this time
pleased with the wagon
