I like the way you think :D

With the ongoing installation of LED light signals a team of scrap merchants of dubious origin have arrived on the layout to remove the old semaphore signals. They seem to be contravening the Elf & Safe Tea regulation a little. ;) :o :lol:

First attempt at a ground signal, using 3mm leds, is slightly over size scale wise (approx 5ft high), but i can live with that.

I have decided to do a bit of plate laying, old cattle dock will be removed (obsolete) and lay some sidings for locos and rolling stock. I need to extend the layout, more space required.
Is it a major task to move the cold water and CH header tanks about 6 ft along the loft?
:lol: :lol:

Depends who does it. My son would find it dead easy. My brother-in-law would destroy the house.

I don’t.think planning permission will be forthcoming from above!
There are still rumblings about lack of loft storage space and the danger of the railway “bits” taking over.
Then again that could be used as an excuse for expansion :lol:
