Polbrook Gurney Colliery Update: Sat 20 April

A couple more snaps of the trainset.....
Railex is just 5 weeks now and I've so much to do...
  • Build 2 fiddle yards (with split height rail access for the different exit points).
  • Build some more cassettes.
  • Build the rear of the pub which previously was up against a backscene.
  • Build 2 loading screens and a bridge carrying a narrow gauge tub /spoil line over the right hand exit points (in progress with code 40 rail)
  • Paint the diorama case.
  • Hope the drape I use for all layouts will (should be fine) will fit.
  • Hope it fits in the back of my old Mondeo with its 2 foot high backscene (a tape measure suggests it will).
Things that probably wont be ready for Railex
  • Cosmetic fishplates for the flatbottomed Colliery sections
  • Cosmetic point rodding
  • Lineside fencing.


  1. Probably a good thing you don't have a full time job to fit in with all this!

  2. I'm in the lucky position to have toy trains as the day job these days. I never get moaned at these days. Penniless but beats an office any day.

  3. Jealousy will get me nowhere. Keep the pics and commentary coming.
