CVR Indoors - 2

My indoor 'branch' of the CVR has now moved on a stage. I managed to find a cheap large HO backscene at A Toy and Train fair which I though would look great. So last weekend I put up some backscne boards and glued on the backscene.

The rolling stock looks right now against it; an added extra is I've got a lovely panoramic view to look at while I'm sitting at my modelling desk.

Spring Tingle

Now that spring is here, I feel I want get some running sessions in.

I've got a bit of major garden rework to finish (new path/border), then I can get onto the railway.

I've managed do so some work on the track. Removal of weeds etc. Some of the builidngs need repairing and a lick of paint.

New Rolling Stock

New box car from Bachmann (replaced the running gear)

What of the crane and tool van, these are still awaiting their final coat of paint (doh ! must finish this project off).
