    I suppose the ideal money no object idea would be to have a facility similar to IOW train story ? Back in the real world (unfortunately..) any undercover accommodation would be a massive step forward, and hopefully isn't too far off. But anyway i cannot wait to see some of the vintage carriages up and running!

    Update

    On the extension, the anti-trespass grids and longitudinal timbers have been installed on the two occupation crossings. No pics yet sorry, hopefully next week.

    The job list is getting smaller, a few odd jobs such as insert the odd bolt or change the odd fishplate. Some fencing jobs remain and these are in hand with the contractor. A few more signs remain to be erected, as well as the mile post heads.

    Meanwhile the shed cladding has been delivered and is being erected. This will continue into next week.

    Regards

    Matt

    Update

    The shed continues to progress and the latest picture shows the side sheets attached on both sides plus half the roof and the rear end.

    Regards
