Why not indeed - I didn't want to because of pending legal action but as that will prob come to nothing I will get working on it!!!

Well apparently the tubes have now been stuck on, so there's a few more minor bits to get done and it'll be on its way to me

I'd better start writing to Santa for all the extras i'll need to kit it out. First on the list being an engine!

Well here it is I now have my work cut out for the coming weeks, no perhaps I mean months! After a long trip to Wolverhampton, and a delayed return crossing on the ferry due to F9-10 winds, I have at last got it home and into the back garden. And I have to say, I'm rather chuffed. It's really not that easy mentally working out a colour scheme and layout, but I'm pleased with my choices. I'm now back in the warm having been making tents all day (I always wanted to be a scout!) so that I can work on the fit-out over the winter. +1 C today, but that's pretty cold for these parts. Rare we ever get frost on the ground, but we did this morning.

More to follow......

In looks neat, Erin. That flash of maroon sets it off nicely.

Looking good - perhaps the wrong time of year though??? Why not try to find the infamous "old empty barn" - you know the one with nothing in it.........

Cheers JW. It was a new colour this year, so thought I'd give it a try. They had to specially order some in for me.

And Codders, I'd love an empty barn, but they don't come cheap, and most are full of Jersey Royals being chitted ready for planting very soon.
