Bit of work on the layout, mostly built a bridge and did some tidying up...

I need to reduce the height of that signal, far too tall.

Really nice work on the bridge. Although a small detail, the H beams really add to the appearance of the structure. Top job =D

Its a Bank Holiday, so nothing is moving at Castle Kerry.

... but some strange rolling stock has appeared.  Doubtless it will be gone as soon as the gricer grapevine swings into action, and no-one will ever believe it

I've been having some fun with the old LokProgrammer, so here is a very uninteresting video

Love Island is uninteresting. This isn't :)

I forgot to say earlier - there's a font you can download called "bunchlo" which is the best available equivalent to the font the GSR used for the bilingual station nameboards. CIE just used plain Roman script, with black letters on a white background. All of those old black signs with "white"* letters were done by the GSR.

 

(* In model form, use cream, as the white - if it ever truly WAS "white" - was discoloured by CIE days to an extent that would make actual white on a layout look unrealistic).

A rough back of a fag packet calculation suggests a smidge over two scale miles for a train leaving the station throat on the raised section, traversing the layout and returning...

Appears to be some more than decent track laying going on here, with a really nice flow to things and spacers used to keep adjoining lines parallel.
