Progress on Earl’s Wood continues, aided by a week off work. The photos below show the exit from the layout with scenery and ballast complete (apart from a hoover to pick up any odd debris). The trees hide the exit well, and even the odd end to the viaduct is not obvious from most viewing angles.
There’s a little wiring to do under the board, and that point motor to fix in place, and then I have to put a fiddle yard together. At least the layout will get to the show as a static exhibit – though it would be quite possible to use it as it is without storage to just shunt the three sidings. This may be a good option, as I won’t have much time to operate as well as playing as Exhibition Manager. I could just retreat and use the layout as my ‘worry beads.’
