February has been a good month. I've managed to get quite a few long term mini projects done. Which is good for the soul, as several significant tasks have been done as a result! The top is on and track laying can now begin again.

February Objectives Recap:
Reacquire a new, new Percy. Yeah... Still not happened.
Still watching, waiting for the right one.

Continue laying track on the lower level. The lower level is completed!
Continue the bridge build. The Bridge has taken a large step forward. The 4 support structures have been assembled.
Extend the main runs up to the control panel. Had to adjust the track laying plan.

Bridge build base supports built: Picture link here.
Facias going on. The final design starts to emerge: Picture link here.

March Objectives:
Reacquire a new, new Percy.
Get the access system worked out and started on
Continue the bridge build. Complete one tower.
Get the station tracks positions finalised.

Track has been roughly put in place to give me an idea of what room I have for the planned track, as well as what wiggle room I have for the track rejig through the bottleneck at the control panel. Some of the aforementioned track has been drawn around to give me a better idea of final positioning.

The bridge kit bash has continued, with the two end supports, getting a brick fascia. I'm really pleased with the effect.

I have a fair idea of where the station is going to sit, so things should be able to progress on the track laying front again fairly soon.

A slow weekend, the weather to an extent, household chores and lethargy intervened in my enthusiasm to continue the project.

New track has been acquired and station positions double checked and finalised, for now. I'm happy with the plan and I'm just about ready to begin laying tack again!
