the Highland extension needs some attention, though, leaves, moles and broken sleepers,/QUOTE]
You need George Smiley to go after the moles :nerd:.
As for the leaves ... I have to find me rake and go after a deluge of 'em. Still have lots to come down. :eek:
Broken sleep I can also sympathize with :yawn: ... oh, wait, you were talking about something else

Nice last shot Paul, its puts a new perspective on your railway - a definite Welsh NG essence.

After a year without much activity on the railway because of other distractions, I decided, with the nice weather, to get the line back in running order.

Depredations of moles and weeds

Looking a bit like the Talyllyn in the 50s

Remedial work to the top station
Probably all wash away next rain. If so will try Paul's postcrete idea

Repaired, but the moles have already had another go

I wonder if you could use one of those high pitched cat or dog scarers? Intercept the tunnel, and insert a suitably protected unit in the ground.
I've whacked a long piece of slate into the hole, see if that slows him down. If not I'll try your idea :)

Just for myself, I like to see the colour of green and growing things :)
