    This is coming along rather nicely Ian. :thumbs::thumbs::thumbs: Looking forward to scenery and what you have in mind.
    I was thinking, you wouldn't really need the brick base on the signal box since it is platform mounted. If it was stand alone, yes the brick base would be warranted. ;)

    Cheers, Gary.

    ps, Rule #1, it's your railway !
