Just a quick update this time since, to be honest, not much construction work has occurred on the layout since Easter. Anyway, we finally managed to do a little bit last weekend wherein we focused our attention on progressing the hill and brewery areas.
The hill has now finally taken shape and received an earth wash prior to further landscaping whilst the brewery has had the first few perimeter fencing panels 'erected'.
The hill was made from pieces of screwed up newspaper, overlaid with strips of Peco Land Form. This plaster-impregnated bandage material does make creating hills and embankments very easy and we have used quite a bit over the past few weeks!
Well, after all of that hard work (!) we thought we would have some fun by giving our Class 45 (45053) a test run with a short rake of coaches on the newly cleaned track - and she performed very well. So, hopefully, we will include her in our next video.
