Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents Back again, another update on the footpath and general area, started to install a couple of signal, some of the LNER type upper quadrants will be replaced by GN somersaults, which is something I'm working on at the moment.

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents Time marches on when your having fun, have hardly touched a loco, except to run it on the layout, the main job at the moment is scenery, I won't say I'm screaming along, plodding, would be more accurate, the temps here have not been to conducive to a lot of shed work, into the 40c's, so ...
