    Making up some retaining walls, I want to avoid a hard right angle here, this will be filled with polystyrene and shaped with plenty of bushes and trees added.

    F0657936-B84F-42F7-9867-5D1AF74F6027.jpeg All go on the new coaling stage project, Intentio Pit in and railed up plus the first track going down, front road will have a long pit installed before the track is fixed.
    I picked up two lengths of Peco for the rear road from the Pontypool and Blaenavon Railway shop along with a box van yesterday, I did respace the first 8” to match the C&L track as it’s visible but the rest is hidden behind the coaling stage and the ramp! Plus some laser cut sleepers in place for the Ragstone buffer stop. Polystyrene added in the corner.

    Scenics underway with track sanding and spraying along with some greenery, building up in layers as we go along.

    I like the rubbish. Think how much those chimneys would be worth if they hadn’t been scrapped.

    It does feel a little grass heavy at the moment but once the front track and pit is in and it’s all covered in ash and crap it should balance out the green nicely.

    D4AB8651-DB91-4199-953F-5937D5693548.jpeg Let’s see if we can make an old meets new retaining wall. Driving through Abersychan gave me the inspiration for this but it happened all over the country.
