There's been some dramatic progress in the last couple of days on the extension to the layout.
Himself has started laying the mod roc (plaster soaked bandages for those not familiar with the brand name) over the chicken wire which forms the landscape.
I've always found this to be one of the most fun parts of the process of building scenery. Lovely and messy and tactile giving a real childish sense of delight.
It also makes it appear that the project has taken a huge leap forward which is mostly an illusion.
Here you can see a close up of one of the culverts in a bit more context now...
And an eye level view around the big 180 degree bend - that's quite an embankment, eh?
