With so much TV airtime devoted to the Olympics, the only way of getting away from it is in the garage listening to Magic 105.4!!

The goods loops on the public viewing side of the layout are taking shape and sidings and warehousing will be added to the right. The slightly odd arrangement is because I do not want any vehicles less than 4" away from the edge of the layout so they are mainly out of the reach of tiny fingers. Scenery will slope up slightly towards the edge of the board.

Looking the other way, we see 58017 with its complete rake of MGR hoppers to test the length of the passing loops.  The wagons are kits from Andy Shillito.  The tracks between the baseboard joins have yet to be tacked down so are not as straight as they should be!

As you can see, four into two are not going to go!  When I buy the points needed to complete this end of the goods loops, I suspect that there will be a slight curve to the right.

  1. Taking shape nicely; I'm looking forward to seeing this when it's out and about! It's one of my great regrets that I only got to see Broad Green just the once. At least plenty of pictures of it survive.
