Work continues apace on the East Yorkshire Area Group's layout Botanic Gardens, and wiring up of the plain track and pointwork on the entrance to the coal yard is aproaching completion. James Wells has been busy building more loco stock (a Class E (J71) from a using a Mainline body and Mainly Trains chassis kit) so at least we'll have several options to test the trackwork!
James has also started a couple of new blogs on his own activities: more details soon! There is also a thread on the Botanic Gardens project on the RMweb model railway web forum.
Further updates (and possibly images) after the Festive Season...
