Well i have some great news last night.
A few weeks back i Tried a CAB forward around the layout and the Helix curves were just to tight for it, So a friend of mine brought around his UP Challenger, to give that a go.
It went around the inside helix no problem at all, i am pleased to say.  So i can get some nice big Steam locos running.

Had a good weekend Track laying.
I managed to get the Level 1 track down and give the loco a run around to test it.

So i managed to finish St. Leonard yard last night.  I also have added the main through line for the yard,  there is two more sidings to go in on the left hand side.  But i have ran out of Ground Throws.  
Its a good job i get paid on Friday as i have quite a list of things to pick up, to keep me going.
Still i am please with the Progress

Hi Alan :wave:


Sounds like good progress on the layout. :bg:

Do you have any regular photos ?

Some of us don't watch YouTube videos. :f:

Nice trackplan drawings Alan.

I'm envious !

My Tri-ang HO trains await somewhere to stretch their legs ! ;)
