We're going out there on Friday for the week.
Looking forward to getting over to Morgins area, only scratched the service before.

Im off in a couple of weeks for 3 weeks there, looks like tons of new stuff built, last years Pleney closure seemed to spur the builders on a bit and they built the whole new Blue run on Supermorzine, previously SM had been ok with one Red and a few unofficials runs but the new Blue quickly became a mainline like the Les Chanennes Red.

Now this year theyve built even more, previoulsy Mont Chery was rather neglected with only a Green run and the old Black WC run which was rather knackered, this has now lots of jumps/gaps as can be seen above, look a bit challanging ! and of course a whole new Airlines run as well, which looks above my skill level.

Can't wait :)
