Fortunately it is a tunnel and not a box. The cat would want to sit in it if it was a box and you would never get a train through.

Little news:
1) All the signposts of the Ferrovie dello Balconia are now provided with wide feet so that they stay steady in the grass.
2) Ed Steam drove some laps through the garden to try out his locomotive. He took advantage of the opportunity that the Ferrovie dello Balconia was not present!

Protection of a by-pass track / passing track to:

— RETB / BR. Radio Electronic Token Block, as used in Scotland.
— SNCF. Security signs following the french prototype.
— ERMTS. European Rail Traffic Management System, the new european security system. The sign at the switch is like the English example, which is slightly different on the continent.

You should be ready for drivers from just about anywhere! Very nice looking signage

The new coal storage facility for the Ferrovie dello Balconia is ready. From now on, we will no longer be dependent on other railway companies to replenish the coal reserves of our steam locomotives. The water supply of the locomotives was already assured, at least, as long as the ladies are not swimming! The coal storage is accessible by stairs. On the platform there are 3 compartments for the storage of coal. Depending on the stock of coal, the compartments can be closed with shelves. The topping up will be done with wicker baskets, but in the long run there may also be a small crane.

An excellent addition to your railway, Marco, and very nicely photographed.

A crane for loading the coal will certainly save a lot of hard work.
