More Brinkley Boards

Further progress as at 13.00hrs today. Chris and Morgan admiring their handiwork.

The main line has been laid on the new regraded incline... will any loco, apart from my Peak, lift Morgan's coaches... will Graham's locos now storm the bank... ?

Featured in the foreground are the three new loco inspection pits positioned in front of the site of the three road shed - detailing including water cranes etc to be added later.The nearest rectangular hole is the site of the shed and will hold the shed track base which will be fabricated out of plasticard in a similar style to the pit roads.
The two new boards add 2.5ft to the layout, give additional space in the shed yard and enable the gradient on the incline to be changed from around 1 in 38 to 1 in 60.

The new Midland coal stage will be positioned between the tracks at the far end of the board... where the chisel and hammer are positioned, whilst to the left in the photos is the extended headshunt for the goods yard.
Cheers, Robin
