Hi  MicroModeller.   The squirrels I have had for some time and make their appearance now and again around the layout.   I hope they can stay where they are now, 

The fencing at Roseville Station is now finished (with the squirrels at the other side).

Just my unorthodox style of modelling.  Sometimes one cannot see any trains; just fifty shades of green.

The  times i have travelled on a train and seeing everything overgrown; especially north of Ladybank.

Not everything is 'prim and proper'.  Not here anyway.

Hi NorthBrit great shot of the guys working on the truck as the oil freight goes by.😉

Young Jimmy Marston is 'spinning the job out'.  He has been trying to fix the wheel for over a year now.  lol

Hi David! Charlie and Agnes are lucky to have a house where they can watch the Class 47 go by.😉

I wish I lived that close to a railway line as well.  lol

I used to live very close to the old Border Counties Railway line in Northumberland.   Never saw any trains though.   The line closed in 1958. 😢

Class 25  25237  on trip to Royal Ordnance Factory (R O F)  Barnbow.

Entering Sovereign Street  Station.

Passing Roseville Station.   There is mist ahead.   Is it going to rain?   The Postman is on his second delivery and waiting for an answer.  He has a package to deliver.  Two dogs are following on his round and are waiting patiently.

Waiting at the signal whilst a diverted Down  Thames - Clyde  Express  with Class 45  45048  'The Royal Marines' in charge,  clears the junction.

Which does one see first?   The red squirrels or the Pacer?
