Track detailing

Hi all,

A short post today, but there is some progress to report.

I have been detailing my #6 code 55 turnout from the loop to the goods siding.  I'm using some Stephen Johnson chairs I've had stashed away.  They're very nice and I wish I could get more!  (I really miss the Stephen Johnson range and Steve himself, for that matter).   I was contemplating making some new masters for code 55 rail, and code 70 rail (and for some other bits and pieces which are not available from anyone) when I remembered proto87 stores (Andy Reichart in the US).  I have some I bought years ago (when I was making sole plates for Ian Millard) so I'll give those a go, and if they're any good I can buy more.  Andy also has some very nice bolt and rivet detailing parts.

Photos and another update soon.

On another note, I've purchased the ARHS Bulletins on CD collection.  It's like porn for railway enthusiasts.  Do yourself a favour...
