Stanley waiting at Priory Interchange as Casey Jones soars by with the afternoon express. image.jpeg Stanley waiting at Priory Interchange Station. image.jpeg I've taken advantage of the clement weather this week to do a little track realignment and remove two points that were causing a few problems. A new temporary platform and some spare buildings have been pressed into service. A new concrete platform will be laid once the winter frost have gone. The new station will be named Priory Interchange and a footbridge will link the station to Priory Exchange station.

It looks pretty good, consider the amount of time it has been there.

Phil, it’s from the Cain Howie range. I purchased it from the Llanfair show a few years back. It is extremely heavy.

Aha working with pictures on the iPad can be a bit of fun. What I tend to do is some text then upload the pictures, but leave them down below. Then I add each picture one by one adding 3 returns between each one. This then gives you space to add text between each picture. Note though there is an insert all option, but as you scroll down the full image for each one is below that by each picture.

Your keypad should re-appear as you put your cursor where you can enter text. If you do not the keypad stays hidden.

Hope this helps Paul.

Casey, very nice, I hope the statues are not of anybody controversial ;)
Certainly controversial to some, they are Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe, German Writer and Friedrich Schiller, German Poet and Philosopher.

The Gaffer of the locomotive shed is not very happy. Two locomotives were taken into the CFR workshop for a complete overhaul and repaint. The overhaul was carried out satisfactory but the paint shop guys decided to cut a few corners so that they could get to the Friday dwarfs match.
They decided to repaint the locomotives without first removing the accumulated dirt and rust from them. They then sent them back to the locomotive shed without the paint shop foreman seeing them:-

Engines #8 and #9 heading back to the locomotive shed.

A firing offence, surely?
