..it's all slowly coming to fruition mate, bits and bobs of furniture being moved from folks place today (where i sit and type sir) ...and yep, it's all good, a few delays here and there, but in the greater scheme of things and general stuff etc, am pretty pleased with new location, woman and two dogs that come with it lol, and lots of yorkshire tea! :D 8)

(proper update soon to, have bought a 'multi-card reader- SDHC support' thingame-wotsit for a quid from pound-galaxy and can now with some tweaking, move pics of stuff to the pc here and at my new place.. been getting my goat not being able to do that for weeks now!... minor issue.)

Right so, pics. progress, electric and lighting installation etc, to follow soon.

Just a quick update.. spring approacheth soon and i am looking forward to sorting the shed out. It has become a little cluttered, what with more stuff from my old place of residence needing to be housed. everything bar Rosie the cat.

Here is an image of the general chaos that is currently my shed :oops: :lol:

I bet you'll find some long forgotten treasures as you work your way through that lot.

That photo is a fantastic argument in favour of open top baseboards. In my experience any clear horizontal surface attracts clutter like a magnet. Dispersing clutter is a darned sight harder than accumulating it in the first place.

It's taken a little bit of time, and a change of scale to better suit my eye balls (Back to good old double zero!)

General bufferstop Sir!! The boards are clear for inspection! (kind of) always tonnes of stuff moving from place to place like the sands of the Sahara Dessert in our place, but here is a quick and informative, informative film which i hope all veiwers will find informative etc about current developments in my second shed. more info to follow, this is just a quick vid of the first train making it's way around a quickly put together loop, and guess what it is?? ..could it be a 'Terrier' ??? :shock: :shock: :D

A momentous occasion properly celebrated (with a big mug of tea) and recorded for posterity, or at least until the next computer disaster :D

Bit of a sort out in me shed this afternoon during the inclement precipitous weather conditions. Here's the triang class 31 rumbling round with a small goods service (incidentally it is up for grabs with other stuff in the classifieds, see thread for details), so far trains are going from nowhere as such to nowhere as such, plans developing, i hope to have a working trackplan to share here soon.

Finally tripped over this thread and had a very enjoyable read.

A lot wiser man than I was before (although not sure about anything relating to model trains though)....

:D cheers chap, yes, must admit, looking back over the last 5/6 years, some of it confuses me as to what i was doing at the time (good reason for that.. let's just say it's been 2 and a half years since any alcohol has passed my lips) hopefully my thread will start to develop along the same fairly logical lines as all me other fellow forum members, to whom i owe an awful lot in terms of providing mojo (enthusiasm) ideas, tips and tricks and everything you need to know to really bring a layout or scene etc, oe of my continuing issues is that my imagination tends to far outstrip my ability to concerntrate and actually 'do' if that makes sense, many mountains to climb etc etc.

proper update in coming days.

thanks for looking.

Hi Terrier
Sorted shed!!! I thought they where a myth.
Don't panic we have all got our ambitions mixed up with our capabilities at one time or other :oops: :( .
Time a bit more experience and that sudden flash of brilliance :idea: that shows up from time to time
usually cures that problem.
If you can imagine something then you can slowly work out how to make it work.
Steady lad hold the line.
regards John

:D Cheers John, and apologies for the million day delay in reply/update.

something new on the horizon.. it may look familiar?? :shock:

(still got the n gauge one kicking about somewhere? i know this isn't the for sale thread, but if anyone is interested in inheriting my old n 8 arch viaduct, drop me a line, i've been looking to patching it up and offering it to all and sundry on the bay of fleas, but too much to do)

i've done a piccy hash-up of what i'm looking to create, still haven't properly settled on a plan, but it's all coming together.
