In the PipeLine ...

After the first couple of running sessions, it's time to take stock of what needs doing and also any rolling stock additions that are needed.

I've an outstanding list of things to do to outside:
1) buildings maintenance - painting and repairs
2) control panel and associated wiring loom
3) ballasting - another 'finishing' layer of approriate gravel/chippings.

On the rolling stock front I've bought a couple of cheap second hand items recently, and I've one modelling project in progress - a crane and tool van.

A Castle ?

To fill in a hole in the garden border I decided on a castle, a cheap plastic one from car boot was obtained, and duly put in place. Its sits nicely on the other side of the tracks from the miltatry base.
Again it was a lovely sunny day so out with the trains for a running session, the top part of the railway is starting to look rather nice ...
