Work has re-started on the extension

103 days to my open day and approximately another metre has been added to the formation today.  Looks like nothing else is going to happen this week as the weather forecast is for rain, rain and more rain.  Still it's off to the G Scale Society show this weekend to collect more concrete viaduct sections.

The Plan

Having got some of the railway running, I have decided it is time to plan how to bridge the gap in the figure-of-eight circuit.

Before the conservatory was added, there used to be a station on the edge of the patio.  This disappeared under the extended area of slabs.  The plan is to re-build the station, but this time to have an island platform at the lower level linked to a smaller platform at the higher level.
The Plan
The aim is to implement the plan in time for my next open day on 28th July.  I'm now writing a shopping list to take to the G Scale Society 25th Anniversary Show.
