    So I've had to take a break from layout number 2 as I am unable to obtain supplies for it during this lockdown. however I have started layout number 3 which is going to use everything I currently have at home. its a micro layout/shunting puzzle I call her "Lockdown Sidings" this is what I accomplished in a single day, now waiting for the glue to dry so I can continue the hillside and then move onto plaster cloth and landscaping Smile
