Fear not Carl, the frame tents x2 are still available for visitors and open days cheers

The shed is nominally 3m x 3m but internal 2.7 x 2.7 approx 8 sq M still enough room for twin tracks at R1 and R2

Further progress this week with some great 1:1 scale "faux tuiles" plastic sheeting I think they stole the idea from railway modellers Laughing

Today on the CFHC - Page 14 Shed1010

I shall be able to get on tomorrow with the fun stuff - installing track and control systems, etc!

BTW I did modify the kit, by putting a 1 metre overhang at the front to provide protection for our weather averse railway friends like Van Today on the CFHC - Page 14 509698
Not that it ever gets too hot, or rains in the Charente!

Will you be cladding the whole thing in Milliput and scribing your own brickwork then? Cool

Nice looking shed though! How hot does it get inside, I wonder?

That sounds like a garden railway paradise! I see on www.lacharente.com it's still 19 degrees and sunny over there!

The shed turned out great!

What a splendid place, organised and spacious.

You could really 'live' in there.

I'll take that room when I visit.... Laughing

You'd be more than welcome Carl, but we do have - two frame tents, a guest room and a whole second building should you prefer? Besides I could well be exiled there myself soon bounce

More progress over the last couple of weeks. Courtesey of a new R5 turnout the loop extends into the side of the cabin...
Today on the CFHC - Page 14 Loop10

Today on the CFHC - Page 14 Loop110

Today on the CFHC - Page 14 Loop210

Having surrounded the cabin in track, a bridge was required a bit "Heath Robinson", but it works...

Last week also created a siding loop into the old"reverse loop" area where I intend to create a quarry...
Today on the CFHC - Page 14 Quarry10

Today on the CFHC - Page 14 Quarry12

Today on the CFHC - Page 14 Quarry13

I must say the cabin has greatly increased my enjoyment of the railway. It's great to have all your stock under one roof and at a moments notice come out, open two doors, flip a switch and start playimg trains Today on the CFHC - Page 14 317793
