    Cork bed down (found just enough where I'd stored it behind set of drawers).. next will be temporarily positioning track to mark dock walls for cutting the sea area out using dremel

    Cheers Bo-Bo after trying a Scalescenes freebie build in N gauge I decided that apart from some boats and the dock wall I'll be sticking to Metcalfe for the buildings ... its safer
