Having become wary of the fact that my trackwork was incomplete, tonight I started off laying the magnificently-named Saxondale Junction. (I'm a bit of a Steve Coogan fan and, sadly enough, the name of this junction was part of the reason I chose this route!)
The final missing trackwork then remained at Radcliffe on Trent, (which only became known as Radcliffe in 1974 - not a lot of people know that!). The next four shots are the story of my evening. With profound apologies to anyone who has ever been anywhere near Radcliffe on Trent!
