So I went to the Wexford Model Railway Exhibition on Easter Sunday which was great and I bought a triang white insulfish wagon and a triang blue circle cement tanker which i am very happy with my purchase of.
While I was out today I located a suitable piece of wood in a garden centre/hardware store out near the aldi's heading South out of wexford town. The wood might not be an ideal choice because it is not mdf or ply but it is wood and it is roughly the right size to build something on so i shall have to save up to purchase the board. However there was nothing to tell me the price of the board and i had no time to ask for assisstance. So that looks better then.
My mother might be sending me some money in a few weeks as a late christmas present (the last money she tried to send just before christmas as a present never turned up in my bank account
i was going to use it to go see MCR in Dublin) and i will hopefully be getting the new railroad class 33, a sodor scrap co wagon as they look very pretty
and old slow coach so i will have a three coach train. Still I am desperately short of coaching stock and money, having spent pretty much the last of my railway savings (a big jar full of pennies) on dinner for tonight as we ran out of food a day early.
Don't you just hate when life and poverty get in the way of building a layout.
(Edit: In fact i think i might use the money to buy a baseboard and order ballast, by a syringe and pva and a brush etc etc so i can get the big board sorted)
