Thank you all,

Well had a busy day today managed to squeeze a good few hours on the layout, i placed more fences, telegraph poles animals some bushes and finished the embankment at the country station area.

Started work on the signal area, managed to knock up a walkway built into the rock face need to tweak it a little and some plants but its getting there.

Finally the police have arrived due to 2 horses that was stolen out the animal shed, the locals are not happy at all.

Great pics Lee. Not Dobin and Honeysuckle!?! I heard one of your residents say they saw a Tesco cattle truck drive off rather rapidly. Don't be eating their Lasagnes any time soon. :lol:

Thanking you all,

Managed to do the removable village scene in fact this is the last part of the layout, got loads of running time to come soon once i have finished the finer details :D

Had some great running time today with the kids once this part was finished, also saved one of the locos from the scrap heap not sure how but wd40 over the motor area and a few 100 forward reverse techniques seems to have freed something, its been bad for 5 years plus since the DCC was added i am puzzled but fingers crossed its ok for the future.
