An update and a short running session ...

I had hoped to be running track powered locos by now, however the necessary works have not been done to bad weather, a badly sprained foot and two nasty bouts of flu.  I've only just caught up on the normal jobs in the garden.

The garden planting has matured nicely and the railway now looks like it belongs in the garden .....

Managed to get a nice little running session in a couple of days ago when I got home from work on a nice sunny evening

This years outdoor works will focus on getting setup to run track powered locos, on battery only at the moment.  I have to dig a couple of shallow trenches for wiring and power supply - hopefully I'll get this done before our clay soil turns to 'concrete' due to  the summer weather.


  1. Looking very good this year. Hope that you are feeling more chipper now. Is that windmill Playmobil? I could do with one for 1/32 Little Wars Danish army.

    1. the windmill is from the Sylvanian Families range (made in 1980's+), there are a couple on Ebay at the moment.

    2. Thanks Allan, I have got my eye on a 'collection only' one not too far from me.
