New brewery piping on Ingleton Sidings, the model railway layout and shunting puzzle on an ironing board

Revealed at the Astolat Model Railway Show 2012, the new scenic detail added to Ingleton Sidings seems to be well received! One of the potential issues with sidings layouts is that there is always a halt at one end, leaving the issue of just  how to mask the end of the baseboard. John & I …
