More Pictures - Garden Railway and Garden

Garage Layout - 'Fiddle Yard'

The fiddle yard was orginally single track, have expanded this to two tracks by buying an extra point, luckily had sufficient spare track to make up the new siding.

Garage Layout - work in progress

The layout in the garage is progressing well, its a small loop with feeder siding. Station has a couple of short sidings plus a small run round loop. Will be useful to do some shunting and allow for testing of new rolling stock when the weather is bad.

Maintenance activities begin ...

I've completed the first of my winter maintenance activities - repainting all the little people who populate Beamish town.

When the weather gets a bit wrmer and drier (?) , I'll be repairing some buildings and replacing some split logs used to conatin the trackbed.
