The light at the end of the tunnel

With a deadline to meet for it's first exhibition at Swindon in September 2016 I have drawn up a list of "must do's".  Whilst not much has been happening on the layout itself I have completed a multitude of smaller projects in readiness for placing on the layout.  Road vehicles, platform fittings (seats etc), a goods yard crane and lots more.  I will be rather relieved when it reaches an exhibitable state as it has taken far too long to come to fruition with other events getting in the way.
A thorough tidy up of the spare bedroom beckons to enable the layout to be set up again.
I have uploaded 2 photos of the station, taken in the Summer of 2014.   Much of the work on the layout has since been taking place on the "country" end.





The sun is getting low as the head porter begins to lock up the station for the night.
