Happy birthday to me!

Well, it’s that auspicious day again….  Not very important when you get to my age….

I’ve got several posts lined up for this week – some from Allan and Simon on safari, and some more Stuttgart pictures of that spectacular Danish junction.  But today it’s my birthday.  I started the day by being treated to breakfast out by Mrs Bartlett, and completed it with a Chinese takeaway with Michael and then another ESNG meeting.

In between, there were the presents…..

I took advantage of Strathwood’s 3 for the price of 2 offer.  These two Southern Mogul albums are the only ones that I am missing for the Southern.  Illustrating every member of classes N, N1, U and U1, they show every of the many variations that turned up.

My third book is full of EM1 and EM2 electrics.  I’m never going to model this trans-Pennine line, but I love the pictures of electric locos on long trains of coal wagons.

A couple of Wagon Yard SECR wagons….

I also treated myself to a new music streamer.  A footprint not much larger than a CD case, and it’s based on a Raspberry Pi board inside – and works very well indeed.  Fortunately, I can transfer all the lossless files that are on my old one, with a little bit of editing – I’ve got as far as ‘L’.

Some useful presents from Chelle and Maxine.  My old pair of slippers seem to have got too much use through retirement and lockdown and fell apart!
