February 2017


I am now making progress with the canal and lock and as you view this article, you should see other changes. Some quite obvious and others very subtle.






Page 1: Continuing Work On The Canal and Lock

This first page shows the continuing development of the canal and lock.  I did say in January (2017) that I wasn't happy with the water effect, well, as you can see I stripped it back to the bare wood.


Showing the pedestrian swing bridge, it can be operated either manually or with the windlass (lock key).




Here I have given a couple of coats of gloss yacht varnish to the canal.


Foxshaw Lock.





The canal and lock finished, but I need more trees, shrubbery and plants along the canal banks.  Still not sure about the water though.

Please ignore the piece of balsa lying across the track.
