Not my best photos ever but they record a significant moment in Shelley Railways' life. On Sunday 2 December, the Up afternoon goods became the first train to run through Shelley as the "bridge" extension over the doorway was complete enough to do so. Given I built Shelley in 2001, it's been a long time coming!
The final bad quality photo shows the Z van trundling out of Shelley. I think any modeller who (like me) contends with a lack of space will understand how good such a moment is!
