.......So there are more themes available for more videos then?
Thanks for the vote of confidence, Graeme, but I think I've prevailed upon the goodwill of my YouTube audience a bit too much lately. Though I might do a summary of the the previous year's progress from now at the start of each new year.

Prevail away my good man; everyone loves a "how I did it" video or is that just me.

Not the most exciting video, but a quick tour of the latest version of my computerised freight management system. This one uses Google Sheets - reason being I wanted something which I could run on my phone or tablet out in the garden as well as on my laptop. It's online meaning they synchronise, so any changes on one device are replicated on the others. More importantly, it's free!

It's not the prettiest of user interfaces, but it does the job - and (I might have already mentioned this), it's free - providing you don't mind selling your soul to Google.

Anyhow, y'ere tis .....

No, not yet. It'll be a few days. There's quite a bit to describe.

Very interesting Rik I might give it a go, just not sure about writing 'scripts' I have always struggled with computer/micro-controller programming.
Will wait to see what is on the blog

Hi Graeme
I'll post the code in its entirety so all you'll have to do is copy and paste it. You might then be able to tweak it to do what you want it to do.

70 wagons! And you pack them all away. That's amazing.. It must take quite a while to get each wagon out into the correct place?

Really like this way of doing things, brings reason and value to your freight operations. I've used cards with my 00, but never with the garden railway, I need a few more locations really..
