      Some news on my progress.

      We are running the odd train normally for visitors. The layout room resembles a tip, but this is quite normal during a construction period. Its is for me anyway!. .

      The Queen bee in the house has sugguested I take the whole study for the layout. I of course accepted without hestitation ! So there are going to be some modifications to the layout shortly. At least I can run a few trains now and again. I'm also waiting a shipment of ties from right Tracks in Canada to I can complete the tressel tops. Everything I make has to be machined in my own workshop as their is no Brass wood supplies here, and imports can be slow depending on the vender.

      I find all the Bachmann On30 loco's to be really smooth runners, I'm not so fond of stuff fitted with QSI decoders, the sound is poor compaired to a Soundtraxx Tusnanmi and I'm thinking of modifiying my 2 C16's Broadways when I get a spare moment or two.

      As you can see I've started some tressel Bents I've only got a few dozen to go to bridge Malago Falls

      I would descibe my progress as enthusiastic !

          hard, nice layout and the benchwork looks great.

          I'm curiuos about your blinds on the windows. How do you close them and is this one large blind for all the windows?

            The former Study (layout room) is on a 2nd floor so the blinds arn't really necessay and were installed by the previous owners. I just left them in place. "but if i take my mini steps I can close them".The sun can be very harsh here, but the back scene will keep most of that at bay.
