With the temperature rising in the garage, I have been able to do some more tracklaying and have just completed board 4 (or C in the photo!). The last blog showed boards 1 & 2 in the process of being completed and 2 is nearest the camera.
This takes me as far as the difficult board (B) where the two fiddle yards will interlace so work will now jump to boards J, K, L and A which will be the mirror image of the first boards to be completed. Although the boards are lettered A to L, they are not being constructed in that order!
Just a note on the metal trestle - keep an eye out for special offers at lidl (http://www.lidl.co.uk/) - they come up about once a year at £9.99 or thereabouts and sell out within the first day or two.
Trains congregating to check the lengths are the British steel Iron Ore Tipplers (centre), Triang BDA's with steel load, and innermost BerlinerBahn (BB) container wagons with Tillig and BB containers.
