More Stage 3B progress

Work is advancing steadily on this section with the edging boards being fitted, and points construction in progress. The photos shows some of our 'track gang' so engaged on Saturday when we enjoyed another reasonable day's weather.
The views show the route of the new addition starting 1. just after 'Bamboo Junction' where the existing 'curvy' track will be used as a 'long siding' for additional trains to be stabled ready for a quick platform entry should there be a need on Open Days, 2. site of a new point installation allowing entry back into the station area, 3. the new line curves away slightly (we like curves!) before being joined into the 'Lake' section trackwork, and 4. a current view of 'Triangle Junction'.

Inside the workshop other members were also busy on a variety of tasks including coach /wagon 40, Lucille, and making points.
