What a lovely layout, and it looks like it probably operates as good as it looks!

Another summer on the Knackered Valley
It’s been too hot to run trains lately but a couple of weeks ago I was able to take some pictures. This year was a challenge flower wise as I had to mail order annual seeds instead of going to the garden center. Fortunately, I have planted many perennials in the last 10 years so that only the containers need spring planting with annuals. Obviously, this wasn’t a hedge against a pandemic lock-down but rather a concession to aging knees and back. The various evergreens have matured and filled in the “hills” with only the occasional light pruning. I am glad I got my Spectrum locos (a Shay, Climax and Mallet not shown) when I did as they appear to have disappeared from any of the Internet sites. At least new in the box, although the Climax still seems to be available. I doubt Bachmann will ever rerun these locos again.
Knackersville has a modest Main Street. Some of the Piko building signs have held up in the Sun and some have not. Go figure.
