Traditional Easter weather has, so far at least, discouraged much activity of the going-out variety. The staying-in type has therefore benefited, with some useful advances in model-making. TB is starting to look a bit like it was intended to, with the rear wall, tea-house entrance and steps added, the track ballasted and the rock walls at either end given an initial paint.
In the spirit of conservation, not to mention economy, the paint used for this last operation was what came to hand, namely grey enamel as undercoat and black drainpipe as topcoat. An unlikely combination, but I've used worse, and had worse results.
