    The last of the big trees arrived today, again made by Mike Whatton.

    I need another 4 or 5 from MBR to complete all of the trees.

    First of the tunnel mouths is also going through the paint shop

    I woke up at 3 am this morning to hear rain! Looked at the Europe weather map and it was the same large rain belt rain stretching all the way from Barcelone to Belfast. Not often that happens.
