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.
