Just caught up with things - fab job there sir! You are making stonking progress and it must be such a good feeling to see your efforts in the flesh and ready (almost) to use!

Cheers guys

Off to bed in a mo, but before I go, I forgot I took this pic just after I first connected the rails up. I did infact have to take them up again, but this was the first moment at which there was literally a continuous loop running round the garden!


Sorry the pic is a tad small and you'll have to squint! The HST is in platform 3 though it the completed loop was actuall through the adjacent platform road!

Good night :)

Hmmm, well, guess who was up at Dawn's crack first thing this morning. Not that I couldn't wait to get up anything :roll:

Not that Dawn seemed to mind too much either. She made me breakfast ;)

Tried to get back to sleep but couldn't. Eeh, just like being a kid all over again. Only with less hair :? The H&SE(FB) were on duty in good time. I was impressed with Kashie's dedication despite her maternal responcibilities. Little Drew provided the releif and Kashie duly p*ssed off to feed little'un, as well as ensure the latest member to join the fold had learnt up the latest section of the manual ;)


The last shot is the view I am currently enjoying from my PC desk :) Who's a lucky (albeit hard-working!) boy then?

Cheers all, have a good day

Hi Tim !!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've been looking forward to this day as long as you :lol: .

A long hard slog but worth it in the end. By the way, what is the view like from the top of Everest :lol:

I had heard that the route up Everest was strewn with debris and your photos now confirm this fact :wink:

WELL DONE !!!!!!!!!! There's going to be acres of fun for you and your trusty helpers in it. Let's see some detailed photos and some decent video.

My Very Best Regards
