Wood you believe it!

Nothing to do with model railways this, but here are a couple of pictures of the timber that landed on the beaches near us recently. It came from the ship the "Ice Prince" which sank off Dorset, a hundred miles or so West of here, and came up the channel on the tide. If the pictures look impressive, remember they were taken a week after the timber was washed ashore, so the clear up operation had already moved most of it up the beach.

Now you could make a lot of baseboards out of that timber, if it wasn't for the fact that it has been in the sea for a week, and also the threat of a £2000 fine for anyone taking any!

Back to the model, progress on the station has been good with me finding time on a few evenings recently, though I have yet to make the roof. I will have more pictures and another update soon!

Crazy stuff. Looks like someone made a lifesize model of the Titanic out of match sticks and then crashed it in to the beach.
