Track base under construction

Work has started building the railway along the other side of the garden. In reality, this is (currently at least) more like a giant model railway baseboard than a true garden railway. The topography (the hill the garden is on!) has really forced this. The alternative would be severe gradients that would drastically limit train operations. Some serious landscaping and planting will follow. But perhaps the main thing is that track laying has re-started, and work on the garden shed (eventually to be the Engine Shed and the railway's HQ) is now well under way.

Meanwhile, the H&DLR has been out and about - thanks once again to the Lazy Grange Bay for running rights. Apparently this loco needs more testing... allegedly...
