Fence not yet fixed in place properly as it needs a bit of touching up as well.


Talking of fences, the viaduct side fencing, which looks somewhat wonky here, is being fixed in place gradually with the aid of some very short pieces of 1mm brass rodding and down the other end now looks like this:

The advert on the front of the tram in the link is interesting.  "Gorbachev Vodka." ("Wodka Gorbatschow")

a reasonable approximation of a 1990s Berlin tram stop shelter, complete with Berlin map, and period "Wodka Gorbatschow" advertising, which I scanned in from a magazine I've been keeping around for over 30 years in the hope it would be useful.
