The last month, September, has seen progress made in great leaps and bounds towards having a completed circuit of Moorbrook possible by the time of HRM’s Pie and Peas Night at the end of November. That promises to be our grand opening with a ribbon to break and all that. It doesn’t seem long since we had only bare track on the scenic side.
Complemented by the skillful use of recovered buildings from the old layout ‘Longroyd Bridge’. Lately the team have turned their hand to track painting, oh yes, the rust, then ballasting and painting the results in suitable mud and rust colours.
