Hers the latest batch of photos showing things that have happened since my last update
Basically I’ve ran trains, one was battery manual control and the other radio control,
Was eventful as you had to keep a close eye on both trains, and make sure they didn’t crash or derail!!

It was also a chance to test out my modified Bachmann coaches and see how they looked out in the daylight

These two pictures show the progress of a small track powered extension I’m adding, so far it’s take a about 6 weeks, but hoping soon to fire up the cement mixer and finish the mountains, and then finish the trackwork, as this small extension includes a reverser loop, triangle for turning trains and storage sidings

Just a few more recent pictures as things slowly warm up,

It also means any finished winter projects can come out for some testing

Over the winter I bought a playmobil church, it looks good and is a lot cheaper than the piko option

Just need to sort out the weeds- there are rails under there!

Testing out a newquida bogie van conversion, it’s a van with the bottom 2 rows of planks removed, and then mounted on a flat wagon

Is there any track in that undergrowth in front of Stainz? If so certainly jungleified over the Spring / Winter.
