A lot less legs

With the last of the steel posts having been cemented in, today the temporary wood supports were removed.
Next on the agenda will be cutting the last of the Villaboard and then some fine tuning before screwing it down.
Getting closer to track laying all the time :>)

top and bottom

Dale and I cemented some more baseboard posts in between the constant showers this week . Shaping up to be like last year ... a warm November and cold and wet for most of the summer.

Tonight I started on some Col Shepherd kits recently purchased.
Col's roofs have a series of saw cuts in them to enable the purchaser to remove much of the wood in the centre. This helps any tendency for the carriage to be top heavy when completed.

 Here is a shot of them under way.

They will be used for another FS, a BS and an MHO.... well, that is the plan!
