Jelly and ice-cream redux

009 cranbrook inspiration model-railways narrow-gauge

Another August, another invite to a pleasant afternoon of model railways, chatter and desserts in rural Sussex. I dug Cranbrook out of the shed and took it along, to my surprise it a) hadn’t been eaten by mice and b) still worked. With revived enthusiasm it’s now in my office pending full installation, more updates to come soon.

Many thanks to those who organised the event and those who came along and made it excellent.

Cranbrook - shunting
Cranbrook (O16.5) was a little sticky but everything worked. The project to clean it up now continues!
