Thanks guys. I've been researching/writting for the past 10 years now so I'm having a well earned break for the next couple of years.

More time to concentrate on N Gauge :wave:

Wait until you come to use it and need a quick appointment.

I've been using that system for a couple of years or so,it's fine for booking appointments a few weeks down the line and works well,but if I need to see a doctor the same day I have to drive to the surgery for 8am and physically book an appointment at reception.

Never been able to book on the phone at 8am,the calls are always answered with the "to use ringback" blurb and I never do, so the phone disconnects at their end and it's several redials with the same outcome before I eventually get through,then I'm always told there are no appointments left for that day.

I'd like to know the secret of getting through on the phone like the people who have got the appointments.

Our pharmacy is at the surgery so I just phone them for repeat prescriptions.

Do you know when you have one of those days when absolutely everything that can go wrong does go wrong?

Well,today for me has not been one of those days.
I got up at 10,and did a bit on the layout,then got ready to go to my dads for dinner.Around 3ish I went home and started working on the layout once more and everything I've done has been absolutely spot on.I'm now testing or playing with it now and soon I will be getting ready to go out for some beer.What a marvellous day its been.Watch someone mess it up!

Not really altered it much but I thought it would help the transition onto and off the gradients from the upper level.
Sitting here waiting for the drizzle to stop so I can cut some more baseboard wood to size.
