Started on Scenery work.

…Long Overdue Website Update.
Added more pictures of the layout as it is so far.
Added a Work In Progress page to encourage me to do more regular updates. A kind of ‘on my workbench’ page…

I’ve been clearing out the ‘chaff’, mostly ready to make room for up and coming models – wallet permitting of course.
Plus I’ve been busy on Ebay getting a few items of modern ‘Parcels’ type rolling stock – Full brakes, Siphons etc.

Also I’ve been making the removable ‘Hill’ that covers the hidden sidings and road access to the main station.

Late July-August 2005
.. Lots of Website Updates – and Many New Photographs added.
