One of the many little jobs on Himself's 'To Do' list is to fix some of the small instances of damage to the layouts during their cross-border migration and the time in storage last winter.
A corner which suffered was the fencing around Bron Hebog level crossing which is being replaced.
He makes up the fences using styrene strip sections of various sizes - the main horizontal bars are 20 x 60 thou for example.
These days the safety regulations demand that a veritable maze of fences are erected around a level crossing - and there are no shortage of them on the big S bend out of Beddgelert - and so we find ourselves getting through a lot of styrene.
And with the stuff retailing at nearly a 40p per foot these days the price is probably to scale too!
