State of play

A very quick post this time, just to keep my resolution of at least one post per month. There is not much that is new to report, but I thought an overall view of progress would be worth while. You may remember that I after my original decision to reduce the upper level height without dismantling it, I did eventually dismantle it in order to paint the roads. I have eventually finished the road markings (at least under the bridge) and properly reinstated the upper level and rewired the trackwork. After many months of neglect the track needed a good clean (necessitating the purchase of a Peco track rubber), but now the small bit that there is works like a dream.
The town hall (with a broken Spire) is shown in what will be its final location, and I have cut out the shape for the pavement that will form the town square. I have actually finished drawing, but not painting the 4 brick arches that will form the main part of the stadtbahn running behind the town hall towards the station. The Chorzów post office will be situated between the two roads just to the left of the station. On a recent visit to my parents I raided my dad’s collection of Berlin buses (all 1980s vintage or earlier), and some can be seen here. Now I need some cars…
