    Good morning to you all. Hope you are all well and busy with your railways. Just to say work has started on the 7.25 railway at Moseley a temporary track has been laid, and partly ballasted, the rest of the ballast will hopefully be finished at the weekend. Eventually work will start on the main site sometime soon. Work will also commence on the16mm railway permanent site. The plot has been marked out so that should be good. Hopefully this virus will clear up and visitors will arrive.
    Regards,
    Gloria.

    Good morning one and all, hope everyone is fit and well and busy with their projects. A further update regarding Moseley Toy and Train Museum here in Redruth Cornwall. Work is in progress regarding the 16mm 32 gauge railway the stakes have been put in ready for the ground to be levelled off hopefully that will be towards the end of next week. This will be permanent like Butterley in Derbyshire, but to our own design further updates will follow on that score. Also work has commenced on the permanent 7.25 gauge railway which will run along side their 2ft gauge, also at Moseley Museum. The loco shed is under construction plus the footings are being dug out so track can be laid, more updates later on that project, as we have to rely on the kindness of the volunteers for their help. That is all my news for now.
    Please stay safe,
    Regards,
    Gloria.

    Good morning everyone hope you are all fit and well and managing to fulfill your projects at this awkward time. The latest news about Moseley Museum here in Redruth Cornwall. The ground is gradually being cleared and the grass cut ready for the dual guage track to be laid, the level crossing has been built and cemented in place track has been placed roughly to see how much is needed but not ballasted as yet. The 2 volunteers and the owner shifted 40 ton of soil which has been dug out for the station area and 10ft turntable yet to be built. There is 50ft of track laid temporarily which is used for demonstration purposes and been running a loco plus 4 wheeled coach. Visitors have started to arrive from as far afield as Canada which is lovely plus the comments that have been received about our new project. Photos are on Facebook under 7.25 railways.
    Regards to you all,
    Gloria.

    Thanks for the update Gloria. A very ambitious project. I'd love to visit that in the flesh. Maybe at some point as it has progressed a bit further.

    Keep us updated.
