    FA23C6D1-CEFA-4C93-93DB-1DC223E7C07A.jpeg Construction of Canton Mk2 is underway. This won’t be a fast build as I have two commissions that will take priority first. nice to be underway though
    The upright timbers will support the lighting pelmet as this layout will be viewable from all 3 angles.

That’ll probably be it for Sonning this year. Commission work and Canton will take priority now as commission work pays and Canton had a show invite for April.

The track work was originally from Ranelagh bridge and it’s been in storage and suffered a little damage which can be repaired. The building are also saved from the same project so I hope I can capture a feel of that area in this build. The client has the space to incorporate this into a loop so train will be able to run past and have locos on shed.
