October 2020 update
Our east end station is nearing completion in the next few weeks both platform will be finished and the final touches to the turntable. Our second open day was a great success with visiting locomotives and the home fleet. The project now has taken delivery of another passenger carriage providing a rake of two Mk1 style coaches. Our running line retaining fence has been completed. The west end station is now starting to take shape with the level crossing gate not in position and retaining fence, the new track layout is also taking shape.
