Not a lot of progress to report this week as it has been very slow and backbreaking work digging out the trackbed. Below a thin layer of top soil is a thick bed of heavy red clay which sets like concrete in dry weather. I've needed to use a mattock to dig it out! If I decide to add another business for the railway to serve it will have to be a pottery. In the foreground is the top and highest point of the garden. The inner track, shown here, is radius 5 curves. The railway will run through a tunnel here. The tunnel will carry a path to the wooded area at the very top of the garden. Stoke Works station will be situated on the curve in the middle of the photograph and behind it will be the Salt Works.
