Its been a while...

Its been a while since anything much has happened of significance out on the garden railway. Recently the state of part of the main trestle bridge demanded that some significant replacement work be carried out.

Besides work carried out on the bridge much of the foliage on the railway is growing quite abundantly as can be seen in the below views requiring a fair bit of trimming to allow trains to run. Now that we are going into summer operations should start back up….
