A Dreary Tuesday… Part 4

The fourth update on the new layout focusses on finishing the wiring job for the fiddle yard. As this was filmed a little while ago I’ve been able to make a little further progress and am in discussions to get a custom fiddle yard control panel engraved… very fancy!

Work on the layout has slowed a bit of late. Given the intensity of the fiddle yard build it has been nice to take a step back and work on some rolling stock projects (more of that in a future post) and to enjoy the summer weather.

The next layout update should cover pointwork as I am nearing the end of construction of this, at which point wiring will commence – before long it should be possible to run trains round the whole layout!

At the same time, I need to do some work on BWS to bring it up to standards for it’s exhibition appearances this Autumn – we will be out on the road at the below events in 2022:

Great Electric Train Show, Milton Keynes, 8th and 9th October

South Hants MRC show, Portsmouth, 19th November
