Unfortuantly Moralice and mamod wagons have now gone but fear not the wpsr has now loaned more stock, 2 loco's one battery and another mamod which is green but looks very narrow gauge(pictures to follow shortly. New stock also on loan is one 4 wheel fr coach, one four wheel open coach(third class),half open 4 wheel coach(second class), two goods van(one needing a new roof which is where dinerth works comes in), a ballast 4 wheel truck. If any of you know about big big trains mk 3 coaches then youll recogice the chassis of the new fr brake coach im building but more on that to come on a different post.

The buisness man has finally got the money and go ahead to put in a bit more of the railway the workers are working hard and should be at compo corner tomorrow afternoon.
Today i went out and bought some more supports and thanks to my neighbour got some board pre painted to take the line down to compo corner (straight to the bottom of the garden). The supports have been screwed on and cut to the right size so a good deep hold is given in the ground to make sure it deosnt wobble with a £1000 loco on it.
The 3m 60 section will be going in tomorrow afternoon and track will soon follow with a short gathering (neighbours) to open the railway and run the first train on the section. Pictures to follow hopefully nice weather so it will be completed and running and then more videos and pics. This is a huge step almort doubling the lines length as it stands at present. Thanks for all support and advice from people and people who donated all the track work to this project but if you know anyone selling second hand peco sm-32 track then please let me know.
