Model Week : A tale of two layouts

There is a nationwide shortage of N gauge track at the moment, especially PECO Setrack points (apparently due to PECO being the victim of a cyber attack last year), however i was able to scrape together enough new track to make a start on my new N gauge layout Shard End. It will depict a small branch line terminus in the early 1970s. It is very early days on the layout as i still need a few more points. It is great to have some of my N gauge fleet return after a long time in storage.

Meanwhile, on the other layout Birches Green there was an unfortunate failure. Ruby seems to have become afflicted by the same motor problems as her two sister locomotives Percy and Maria and has been put into immediate storage. Tango has returned to take Ruby's place.
