As you can see, a real mixture of bits and bobs :D

But of course, you know how it goes, you have an idea, buy something, then that idea changes so you sell it and buy what you need for the new idea lol, just that i never seem to have the time to actually get my ideas finished before i come up with a new one and start the whole process all over again, hence i've got a loft full of so much stuff :wink:

The current Loco count is 136, so i really must have another sort out soon and get some of them on Ebay too lol

Next job really is to take all the track up and remove everything from the base boards, extend the exisiting boards where required and then it will be ready for the new 3 era track plan (yet to be finalised on paper, but well on it's way in my head!)

Shall keep ya posted as always :D

Ah an Airfield you know the way to my heart! :lol:

Actually I have this idea of a Southern layout set in 1940 at the height of the Battle Of Britain. Few Hurricanes being fueled up backing onto a railway line :)

PANIC!!!

We've got a leaky roof and although it has not effected the layout so far, the roofing man is telling me they need to take apart the plaster boarded attic ceiling to remove the sprayed on foam insulation from the underside of the tiles before removing them from the outside... it sounds like a messy job to me, plus my layout will be open to the sky and rain!!!!!!!

CRY.... think the re-design has just moved on a phase.. a very unplanned one!!!

CRAP no way i can move it all to the spare bedroom!!!!

:(

Looks like panic is over, when the roofers saw my attic they realised that neither they nor i wanted them to be up there for fear of damaging something, so thay are doing the work from outside only... that's the plan anyway :D

On another subject, i have some more locos etc up for sale on Ebay, so take a look at the following link:
