    Hi there I thought you might like to see a few pictures of my new signal box for my Garden railway.
    just the first in a number of buildings for The Black Isle Light Railway.

    So there it is I think I managed to get the building built OK.

    Be seeing you
    Bob

    Hi Keith
    Yes It is a Roundhouse Billy kit I built and modifed to the state its in now.
    It is a great little engine. I have just treated my self to a "Lady Anne" from the same maufactuer I was planning to build over the winter.
    If you all would like me to feature a build sequence on here then let me know. If there is enough people wanting me to do so I will start a new thread.
    here's a couple of pictures of the Billy.
    Be seeing you
    Bob

    Hi Bob,

    A new thread on your loco build would be awesome. I'm sure it would make for great reading as most of the loco builds currently are electric motor powered models !

    Cheers, Gary.
