Visited the WA Model Rail show on Saturday which reinvigorated my enthusiasm to get moving. There were some really neat layouts on show and a number of vendors flogging their goods. Nice to be able to buy things all in one place instead of traipsing around the countryside for a piece here and a piece there.
Finally laid out the Langwith Junction yards. Hopefully there is enough space to house a variety of rolling stock, although in the long term I can see Lincoln terminus as having another significant place to house both wagon and passenger cars. I am still thinking about whether I should drop in a reverse section or maybe a turntable.
You might also see in the background two pit head lifts. I have toyed around for quite awhile about whether to buy or scratch build. Despite the outrageous price I finally bit the bullet and purchased a couple of the Farish models. To be fair they are well made, but it still seems a lot for two bits of plastic... I can now work on building some outbuildings to complete my collieries, of which I suspect there will be at least two.
