Glad you like the thread, Chops. Clarence Dock/Gillingham Pier just after a rainfall is something a little different. Running trains there is a light-hearted affair when I have 'half an hour spare'. :) Now to move on to the building of the goods loading dock area. :)

Trains have not been run for a short while for one reason or another. Now back up and running. The scenery has been 'tweaked' a little here and there.

Whilst Calder Railway locomotive 'Vivienne' and passenger train wait at the signal at the junction, a Leeds Scarcroft & Wetherby locomotive (in her new Midnight Blue livery) and goods train has right of way.

The K&ESR locomotive is a repainted 'Percy' from the Thomas the Tank range. Nameplates have been ordered for it.

I have one section of the layout that is Summer/Autumn and another part of the layout 'After the Rainfall'; I am 'toying' with the idea of another part of the layout with a little snow.

I have started to build a small goods yard at Clarence Dock to increase the variety of wagons etc. and have more trains running.

Small loading/unloading docks big enough for one or two wagons.

In the way things are sorting trucks to the correct dock, it is a form of Inglenook Sidings. :)

I have been 'pottering' around with one of two old Triang 6 wheeled tenders that have been 'knocking around' for a number of years.

A case of 'cut and shut' removing a middle third of the tender and two wheels. Now a small four wheeled tender.

Now to seal the join, paint it a midnight blue, load with coal and hopefully all will be well.
