Well that is the move done and dusted, have to say that it went extremely smoothly! This was the scene on Thursday last with Allenshaw packed in the car for a move to a temporary storage location at my caravan


I have had a look in the loft of the new house and it is very low and narrow, but very long! Access is a big issue as the hatch (in the bathroom) is very narrow due to the spacing of the joists and all the ceilings are higher than a standard room and would not be accessible by an off the shelf loft ladder. It would not be impossible to get something up there but I think that it is going to be a (very) long term aspiration. The local model railway club, Kyle MRC is having an exhibition in the local town hall this weekend and I am planning to go down and talk to the members about joining, ans seeing if I could get Allenshaw stored at the clubrooms, as I think that this would be a more workable short term solution.

Will keep you informed of how I get on this weekend.

This Signature Left Intentionally Blank, but since I have written this and I intended to do it, this Signature is intentionally not blank. Paradox or What?

Good to hear that things went well and hope you get something sorted with Kyle MRC - but you'll just have to get something running somewhere in the house!
