It’s been nice and sunny, so made the most of lockdown and ran some trains.

mot was also an excuse to test out a few recent purchase‘s

plus it was nice to see a good length grey freight train,
Also took the chance to run the van train well

Latest progress, this lockdown and a change in working patterns has created a bit more time for garden railway work.

I ballasted part of the track near the church, and decided I needed a wall to separate the railway and church.

so cracked out the foam board and had a play, it’s not quite the standard of mr Duffy, but it’s look ok from a few feet away.

I’ve also started a goods yard, in the corner of the garden, it’s a convenient place to store my ever growing collection of freight stock.
Just need to decide if I want to go for postcrete ballast, to represent a hard standing for vehicles

Been taking advantage of the sunshine, and ran trains,

was also a test new wagon purchases.

I’ve decided the shed is going to be a rail served warehouse, so will be Making a concrete hard standing for it in the next few days.

Then got to sort out the fencing and details etc

Here a few pictures of recent progress,

theres now the start of concrete round the warehouse area.

and done a bit more work of the playmobil crane, and also the loco has been converted to run off a 3s lipo, using a own controller and dc step down transfer. Very easy to do and sound way more complex than it is
