There are some jobs you can't do from 400 miles away and one of them is setting coupling heights.
So the new tamper match wagon I'm making has had to be transported south so it can be stood next to the KMX tamper and have the coupling fitted so it matches precisely.
With that small job done it can be dispatched back to Scotland to be finished off.
With a bit of luck and a following wind it might even be ready for the exhibition in Hull next month.
You may also notice that the rail webs on this section of the layout have now been weathered.
It makes a huge difference and Himself is slowing making his way around board by board.
