Not much been going on.

I haven't been able to do much on the layout over the last few weeks, work and firing have been in the way. This last weekend I haven't been able to do anything due to my assistance was required to help put the new shop front onto Mum and Dad's shop.
If you're ever in Blaenau, out of the station, and turn right, walk down the road about 200 meters. Almost directly across the road to 'Y Meirion' pub there's a needlecraft and photography gallery. So you can treat the wife to a gift since you've dragged her on the train ;)
Hopefully over the next week I'll be able to do a bit more.

Some 'Real world news'

I thought I'd share this. It's in prep for the Steam 150 celebrations on the F&WHR this weekend (3-6th of May)
I'd recommend anyone that can to come. It's going to be good.
The photo is of all surviving George England locomotives at Boston Lodge.
Left to right Palmerston, Prince, Welsh Pony and Princess. Prince and Palmerston are in steam.
