Last Friday the key components finally arrived, along with parts for the next point. Primarily the parts involved were the tie-bar, slide rail chairs, and decent check-rails with machined spacers.
I can only say that building points in this gauge is a joy. It is rather like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. The only problem I had was down to starting with a wye point for which I didn't have a template that I could attach the sleepers to with double side sellotape. Instead I temporarily screwed the sleepers to some splines, which also prevented my pre-curved rail from pulling things out of shape.
Meanwhile the first of the new wagons is nearly finished. The next body will be a flat wagon with a Heywood style "top"
