    Any one available this weekend to help me get Watery Lane moving again, the op went well and now is the time to run something.

    Hi Ian,

    glad to hear that the op went well, enjoy your running sessions in the garden, they will be the best 'post op' therapy around.

    Sorry to hear you've been unwell. At least you've had the op and are on the mend by the sound of it.. I've been up to my eyeballs in diy which I hate but it's nearly all done thankfully. See you at Cleckheaton if you go..

    Hi Ian,

    It's good to hear that you are feeling a bit more like doing some modelling, I find it's great for taking your mind of the crap that life throws at you.

    S8300193.JPG This is what I am trying to go for going through Dudley Port heading to Wolverhampton on the DOWN line
    Please excuse the curves just before the station area, in reality they are dead straight but I got a bit sick and tired of the layout not being functional so I decided to do something about it. Firstly I repaired all of the droppers up to the lift out bridge, then I repaired the lift out section itself the wall had heaved by about 5mm but it was enough to upset all of the geometry so I redid it. Then I looked at the station area and though I don't like the kink after the lifting bridge so I re did that as well and started to build the platform.
