I have been totally stopped on railway projects since February thanks to finding myself in the middle of a Church Planting effort which has absorbed a vast amount of my energy over the spring and summer. Anyway, the situation seems to be stabilizing a bit now, so I might be able to get on with both the S&CLR&T, and the outdoor line - except now the annual vacation is looming. <sigh>

It is funny how that real life manages to get in the way of model railways.
I know the feeling Peter, I have been suffering with parish related issues for the last few months. It was only last week I got into the shed for the first time since January.
Either times have changed since Rev Denny's time or you two are doing something wrong! He managed to build a garden line AND an indoor one, and still earn his daily bread. Mind you, Rev Awdry must have had a fair bit of time on his hands, and Rev Boston's flock must have had to pretty mych fend for themselves while he looked after his locos and traction engines... Guess they weren't running three parishes and the local food bank back then...

Hope you both get some modelling done soon!

All the best,

Andrew.

Very different now.
If at first you don't succeed, use a bigger hammer!

Good to hear from you again Peter....know what you mean about holidays....it's an unusually hot summer here, I'd be happy to get hot in this country (near a railway) but Mrs B feels the need to fly somewhere warm. To be resolved!
I usually quite look forward to the end of summer holiday, but this year things are more than a little nuts. Firstly, I have taught three courses back to back at the Theological Institute, and that has eaten time like nobody's business. Secondly, the missus has had some health issues of the more annoying than serious variety, which has meant plenty of time at the Quack Shop. Thirdly, we have had to have some work done on the house - additional electrical outlets, and a repair to the aged central heating system. All of which stress seems to drive my ocular migraine into overdrive with the result that my GP is packing me off to a neurologist. The latest circus is that the vet where I usually board the dog is moving while we are supposed to be away, except now they are not - maybe - so that means Plans B & C have to be reformulated.


I could really use some railway time, but every time I think I have a clear evening I have something comes up...


Very frustrating!

Traffic Pattern? What pattern? Spuds out; grain in, but cattle, sheep and passengers are a lot less predictable.
