Model Week: Wagon and track

A new wagon has joined the Birches Green freight fleet, this is another Liliput open wagon. We already have a few of these, two are permanent members of the departmental fleet and fitted with track cleaners. This new wagon will be part of the general freight pool. We've also bought two proper HOe switches and used them to replace the N gauge ones in the freight yard. The N gauge switches are being used on the N gauge layout. 

We still have two N gauge switches on Birches Green but replacing them would cause too much upheaval as already ballasted track would have to be lifted and this would be a colossal mess. What we'll do instead is look for ways to hide the visible N gauge sleepers.
