The old ply deck got ripped out in favour of a concrete base.
Not complete yet, just need to reinstate the retaining wall face.



I had to test each part of the passing loop



....and have a running session...

Nice little collection of weeds in your engine shed Paul! Laughing How is it bearing up under the rigours of several North Wales winters?

Yes, the weeds got their "Come uppence" after I took the pictures. Laughing
The shed is bearing up well, just two rainwater downpipes and a chinese hatted chimney have needed to be re-glued so far.

That's a shame, I thought perhaps you had become the first person to model a g-scale drug den! Cool

Nice pics though, as ever.

As usual interesting photos, I love watching the progress of you railway it’s always an inspiration.
I do keep track of all your postings but don’t comment every time because I bet you really get fed up of all the ‘Praise’ of your line and your Photographic skills.

If I can inspire people to get out into the garden and build a railway it makes me happy.
I doubt if there are many who get fed up with a little praise. Thank you Peter.

U Class fest tonight at Linz.







Not sure what to do with the primer green U1. Dare I weather it ? affraid

Since the reinstatement of the Linz Gstadt Bahn back in December 2010 it has been run by a preservation society (Me Very Happy ) .

So yesterday at The Llanfair show when I saw this little rascal for sale, the committee unanimouisly decided to buy it and bugger the consequences.

Now that the railway is run by a preservation society, this loco will not be allowed to get dirty (weathered).

Great addition, Paul. How does she handle your grades? Got her weighted down with lead yet?

I sold it on Ebay to a guy in Switzerland, a dealer I think.
The reasons why...........

The first G scale loco I ever saw was a Stainz back in 1973 as a thirteen year old.
The image has been indelibly imprinted on my brain and its got to the point where if it ain't the same, it isn't right (Knowing full well that the LGB loco is not to scale in some respects - the gauge for example.

Now the Regner Stainz is different to an LGB Stainz in its scale and proportions, and is too big against LGB wagons and coaches.
Some of you that run live steam know, the loco demands your complete attention.
Now, for me, I want to be able to look at my loco in action in a state of complete relaxation, not holding a r/c unit, wondering if the gas is about to run out or if there's enough water in the boiler.......

So putting all the factors together, I decided to sell it on.

Thanks Paul for sharing your railway. I enjoy watching how a garden railway transforms over years and in your case, a rebirth!
And a belated congratulations on your layout article in the August 2010 Continental Modeller.

Welcome back Paul, I hope this year has gone ok for you. Your railway is still looking good.

The weather has been a problem I guess for lots of us. I am hoping for more inspiration next year.
