Well been another slow work on the layout, with some changes being made

I have lifted the depot up & removed the last inspection pit, and all the hard standing, I have cleaned the track up, I also found another set of points in the shed & been able to work in another siding

I now need some fish plates & refit the hard standing & level the track up


Photos will be uploaded when the yards done

Been a bit since ive done a update, First major update is that i have been invited to attend the Maryport Model Club 2015 show in april & i have also been able to join the 2014 Workington MRE in november

But the railway is near complete, I have the yard almost completed & most of the scenic area done, Only need to build the level crossing, refit the OHLEs and clean the track

Well thought id do a update,
the whole layout has been given a new modern look, new ballast and depot area, new station building, and lights, ive since tore the road up and platform to rebuild them (that was over 1 year ago)

in april 2015 Balsa Rd attended Maryport MRE
