Those close up shots show that the 57xx really is a beautiful loco - is it Bachmann/San Cheng?

close, it is a tower brass/san cheng. it was bargain too considering there only 150 made and they've all long sold out.

Further developments, the mountain is under construction, the tunnel through it is starting to take shape too. and some scenic work has started on it but I need to get some mod-rock before I can get the top part done.

A layout is never finished, it's just a shortage of ideas or time.

the end throw and centre throw shouldn't be a problem. we'll find out at the end of january when the autotrailers arrive, if they are okay then the MK1's will be.

Brilliant to have 5526 back, a trip to West Lulworth is needed!

With the toplights I assume? :D (oh and lots of the goods stock)

Just a quick update, been working on the stone causeway or "the cob" if you will and added new signs to the signal box.
