Did you make them yourself or buy them? If so where did they come from?

Now that control panel looks very smart, fit for the interior of a signal box.

That ballasting looks brilliant, how much do you get laid down in a session roughly?

That control panel looks great :shock: . I guess it matches the quality of the rest of your work.
I always look forward to new updates from Wenchford, so keep them coming :D .

Thanks for sharing.

Went to Bristol Exhibition yesterday, picked up my new Castle and bought an Iron Mink;

Been working on the layout this evening after work, put in the shed board, started to lay the track to it, just got to build the track and boards to connect it to the rest of the layout, also I have done some more scenic work.

Going all geordie on us for some reason? :lol: :wink:

That is one lovely shed, I wish I had space for a decent run in 0 gauge, but then again, i'd probably just fill it with more 00 lol.
