I’m so sorry for the recent lack of updates. For the last couple of months, I have been suffering with some shocking sciatica down the whole of my right leg.
Even with the garage being really cold at this time of the year, I have not really fancied doing much modelling at all in the warmth of my house. I have occasionally painted the odd wagon but that is all. My lovely wife is not a fan of paints and thinners in the house!
I must now try and get back to some serious modelling. I also need to have my strength sorted for the new exhibition season which will start very soon. My 2 layouts have appearances throughout the year.
Prince’s Street will need some rapid progress soon as it makes its first public appearances this year. There is much to do at either end with the station and bridge areas needing the most work. 2 Dapol signals arrived today and I hope they will really bring the station throat to life . I firmly believe that its the little details that bring a layout alive and and hope this ethos will shine out when people see my layout. I also have lots of wagons half built and now need to bring a few to completion. These include the snow ploughs, the TTAs, the Shark and the ballast wagons. That’s 11 unfinished projects for O gauge not to mention a few OO weathering jobs to have to get done!
