3mm Society, Railway, Railway days, Wimblehurst Road

Wimblehurst Road – Uckfield tomorrow!

24 hours to go – so will it be a case of burning the midnight oil?

Really pleased with the way the scenery has turned out although have not been able to do a backscene but have the lighting beam finished with one layout name on. Should of been a totem but had to be cut down to fit – ho hum.

As for the running – given the track a good clean and made adjustments to the 3 road fiddle yard exit with wire n tube, hopefully cured the gauging issue.

As for locos – have not managed to finish the Terrier (longest loco build in history) for a variety of reasons mainly not happy about the pickups and having a job with a lot of evening work the past couple of weeks has not helped. Still thanks to the good offices of the Mid Kent light railway the Colonel has been able to borrow some locos plus the Lee branch and the Amersham and district have contributed stock plus the Cobham light (my sincere thanks gentleman).

Today it is case of fitting end protectors and packing all that’s required for tomorrow’s early start.

Here are the pictures-


Wish me luck!
