Road crossing

Something the layout has always lacked up until now is a way for the people who in the imaginery world of the layout live there to actually get across the tracks! I've added a road crossing as part of some scenery upgrades. One of the sidings (next to the crossing in fact) has also had a modest extension. Both are still in progress, some boards across the track are also needed otherwise the Mercedes in the photo below is about to have a rather bumpy trip!

Operations update

Coach A (the cabbed push-pull one) has returned to the layout to take the place of Coach B. Having an intermediate waggon between it and the propelling locomotive appears to be causing some problems so D16 is currently the meat in a rolling stock sandwich. Some photos from the layout showing all of the locomotives:

A third Tiger Moth

Project #064 has been completed (bar some varnish) and is my third Tiger Moth. Of course Project #001 which kick started my building of kits after a gap of a couple of decades back in 2009 was another Moth. The other was Project #057 last year. This Moth is a civilian one unlike the others which depicted RAF trainers.
