Well, Saturday should have been holding our annual model railway show, N Gauge SouthEast. Inevitably cancelled. But some people don’t give up that easily! Good one Christopher Tank Parker and we’ll make you wear it next year.
Meanwhile, back in the loft, I made a decision as to my N-club modules. I took a tenon saw to the 1200mm board, and it’s now just 900mm or so long. Still heavy, but a lot easier to move around. As I get older, it’s not so much the weight of the thing, but its bulk.
I refitted the N-club end plate, conveniently against an internal former. All the original sidings are the same length, but the main line is a bit shorter. And it fits better into the loft space.
I’ve also finished the creamery building. A bit rough in places, but an enjoyable build. And it’s not a shake the box job – it’s all my own work.
I now need to relay the track on the main line, that I trimmed back to enable me to cut the board. I think my Xuron track cutters are still in the church in the ESNG toolbox? I may have to rescue them on my next visit to check the building and mail box.
And to brighten up your day, obviously a prospective ESNG member on the right?
