Ballast!

Another fairly full day in the engine shed! Started off at around 8.30 this morning. My father started building the card station and I started ballasting. One bottle of ballast later and the sidings were complete! In total, 5 bottles of ballast were needed but the job is complete.
Much glueing later, (not to mention several hours of prodding, poking and scraping to free points and mechanisms,) and the trains were once again runnign relatively freely round the layout. Next job, get a track cleaner to liberate any final flakes of glue that is stopping continuity and then begin the exciting job of 'Modrocing' the hills and landscape before painting the base colours and texturiong.
The three engines pose for a photo call in fron tof the window!
