Diamond Jubilee weekend

Tracklaying on the fiddle yards is now complete following delivery of five hand built right hand points from 3mmSMR.

There now follows a break while I continue redecorating the house.  When I return (probably when temperatures fall in the autumn - or when I get bored again with the redecorating!) tracklaying will recommence on the three scenic boards.

I was at an exhibition at the weekend at Woolwich Firepower and the stand next to me was selling a home made version of the Noch flocking system which allows you to create realistic upright grass.  He was doing a demonstration with his version which is a combination of an electric fly swatter and a metal tea strainer.  Noch - £130. Bexley Models - £17.50.

Needless to say, the grass when applied to Alexandra Junction will be pointing upwards! As this wont probably occur for a year or two, you will just have to wait to see the results as the layout is scheduled for completion in time for the 3mm Society 50th anniversary year which is in 2015.
