August progress

Posted on September 1, 2014. Filed under: Monthly progress |

One big job and loads of small ones.

This has been a key month in Kyle of Sutherland’s development, and not only because of the scenic work at the Missenden Summer School. The two scenic boards, fully boxed up for transport, were taken by car to Missenden. This means the complete layout can be safely taken to local venues, albeit in two trips, without hiring vans.

From here on, there are lots of small, individual scenic jobs to carry out. There’s also the “Culrain 5” telegraph poles to make and a number of buildings to be upgraded. After Missenden, I took the opportunity of working under the boards to electrically interlock the loop point with the Up Starter and Down Home. If operators observe the signals, it’s good to know the point is set correctly.

And now there’s only one more coach body to make, the ex-HR TPO M30321, for a 10-train exhibition sequence. The 1955 Dornoch branch coach, D1704A Sc6730M in red and cream, and the 1960 Thurso branch coach in maroon, D2161 M26718M, are both in the Birmingham paint shop.

But the big, big job is tree-making.
