A Minories of my own – 14 – slow

Not much to report.  I’m back to fighting fit after my vaccination – little in the way of side effects – but haven’t been able to get much enthusiasm for track laying.

I’ve added some more rails….

Added the bases for the rest of the points – together with frogs and some rails….

And tried out the plain track jig.  Easy to use and effective.  My patent chair picker is in the foreground.

I guess that I’ve paused now as I have 14 point blades to file and fit.  Not my favourite job,  but having made one, and rejected it, I think that with the Finetrax jig it’s not too bad a job.  I just need to get on with it.

Still, I’ve made some money selling surplus model railway stuff this week, and come up with yet another layout idea!


Train spotting isn’t the same nowadays.  Not only have the Merchant Navy’s gone, but also school caps!  And you could almost eat your lunch off that platform….

Back another 20 years, and the electric train was something new, and special….

Perhaps I’m just suffering lockdown cabin fever?  I’m beginning to drool at the thought of a full English breakfast and a nice cup of coffee.  And the ESNG faithful are getting desperate for curry…..
