We got our "Portaloos" today. Additional supplies of fuel also arrived.

An off-shore wind whipped up small waves. Tesco made a delivery, too.

Detail of sand and sea, perhaps threatening some coastal erosion?



For those who might be interested in the movement sequence at the Greystones Model, it follows here-under. Effectively, the station has to serve as a passing loop for all traffic between Bray and Wicklow. Surprisingly, I have yet to complete the whole sequence without a hitch! At the moment no times are specified, but that will follow.

General view showing the new buffers. These are made from parts created with our 3D printer.

As well as new orange buffers, the yard has been made more secure, by the addition of new fencing.


Who threw that fuel barrel over the wall?

Work continuing on the southern fiddle yard. The left hand track will also serve as storage for the DART, held overnight in order to provide an early morning sevice to Dublin.

I like the chain link fencing, "from whence did you source said fence, young sir"




It's home spun- .8mm piano wire soldered up with U-POL aluminium reinforcing mesh for car body repair epoxied on, I've a few little 'CIE NO Trespass' signs, barbed wire on the top, and some weathering to go on yet...

Hi All


Well now I'm sure you noticed things are moving along slowly what with other commitments and the like.... but here are a few shots taken today of the concrete paved surface of the timber yard. As seen in previous posts the surface is cardboard with several coats of coloured plaster, the replica joints are knife cuts with a soft pencil line run in the cut, lead pencil dust is also smeared around to give contrasting effect
