Update- The polystyrene is now fully in place on all but the removable board and has been covered with PVA and painted a mix of coats from red to black and a trackbed of grey which still needs finishing. I've left the polystyrene covering the point motor holes in the hope of making small slits for the arms rather than a massive hole but this'll make track laying a real pain as I only have one motor lol!

Would buy them all but as I'm not starting motor wiring until the track is laid I don't feel like buying another 7 motors just yet.
Not much weathering left either so fingers crossed I'll start nailing soon. Then a little wiring, cursing and soldering later I should be able to run trains 8).

More updates coming soon.

Hi all. Sorry about the lack of updates. Haven't been able to get much more done lately. Wiring's the next job. Should get that done soon.

I was once on one and we passed a Pendolino coming the opposite way. A large chunk fell off.

Pacers are brilliant! Better than travelling on those crappy Virgin trains anyday
