It’s taken 2 years but I spent another £3.90 on another piece of flex track. This meant I could correct the length of one piece and abandon the sections which were cut to allow the boards to seperate. The joins were causing the rails to continually pop out of the sleepers.

New total = £162.51



I should finally have some train time again having completed a Ba(Hons) (provisionally a 1st) in music production.

Now how to sort out pictures

Hi MrH saying welcome back seems to be a regular if not frequent happening. Congratulations on the degree no matter what the class. Has Seren maintained her interest in the layout, my two Lady Controllers, the big one and the little one still both take an interest, but they ask hard questions these days. Look forward to seeing some construction soon.

Seren plays with them more than I do at the moment we have a big loop in the loft which she will turn on whenever the loft is open although she wont do the track cleaning up there! At some point I will get something that can be dragged around by a train and it will make it interesting for her!

I'm sure that my Senior Lady Controller (I'm a step grandad) manages me in the same way as her mother manages her dad, her other grandad, sadly no longer with us, was an astro-physicist, my wife's a maths graduate who programmed computers that needed a whole office floor to themselves, and now writes computing textbooks and exam papers, what chance have I got :shock:
