Now that the Saint Cloud train show is out of the way I can get on and do a bit more work on Gonou. A couple of weeks ago my level crossing arrived and it has been waiting patiently to be assembled. As with any T gauge stuff, the parts are small. So small and delicate looking in this case that I was actually worried about cutting them off the sprues in case I broke them. Luckily these worries were to be unfounded and the items came off the sprues very easily indeed. The crossing barriers and warning light poles come ready painted and before I assembled the parts I painted the roadway and the track. Everything goes together really easily though I did find it necessary to drill out the locating holes for the parts a bit so that placing the parts in them was easier. All in all it was only a 10-15 minute job to assemble it.
It looks the part and will do for me. Now I have to work out how I will make one to sit on a curved piece of set track at the other end of the layout.
Now with this finished I am at last able to fix all the trackwork in place on Gonou and I'll be able to run trains again.
