Back Again

Well folks following a few years of health problems, loss of interest as well as some considerable damage to the railway, and with loads of encouragement from friends and colleagues in my local G Scale club, I feel it only right to at least take a look into the possibility of resurrecting part, if not all, of The Gnome Valley Railway.

This image was taken way back last Easter following a visit from my grandchildren. Whilst playing out in the garden one of them climbed up on the layout, not thinking, and unfortunately found a weak spot that collapsed under him. Thankfully he was not hurt but did expose quite a lot of rotten wood. On further inspection, it was found that the rot was indeed considerable and in many places around the layout.

A little more done.

A little more done.


In too much discomfort this morning to get out to the train room, so I thought I would bring you up to-date with progress.
Don’t know how to put text and photos in same post.    Sorry.

Cold and Tired

Cold and tired
Just got back in from doing some Christmas shopping. I’m sat here trying to think of something nice to tell you all but I’m just too damned cold. talk to you another day.
First day at the holiday villa, been out to do shopping so as we can eat when needed. Now it time to test the pool.
