Sorry, should have said, you won't find his name in the locomotive register, it's highly likely you'll see the name crop up in and around Milliedale on Sea

Leonard Freear was my grandfather, he was a draftsman,  engineer and mechanic.

At least three generations of the men in my family have been engineers in some capacity, I'm a designer making me the black sheep of the family, and I like the beer.

I was ordering name plates for my streamlined duchess Princess Eliza (my daughter) and there was space on the order for another set.

I also have a 3F and 4F named as Donald and Douglas :D

Bit of organising the to-do list

Feel free to chime in and persuade / help me to prioritise some over others or anything you think I should photograph properly and write up for the journal.

In no particular order:

Electronics for motive power
actually get a train moving under DCC power!
Finish testing MERG components for DCC control
purchase and build cut out modules

Electronics for signaling (and points):
Control panel (work out what MERG components for signal and point control, purchase and build)

Motive power:
L&Y 3d printed pug - paint, add couplings, afix to chassis etc
Streamlined City of Coventry - wartime black - paint and number
Streamlined Princess Eliza - Crimson - paint, line and number
LMS 10,000 (class 37 chassis required)

Rolling stock:
Trial and fit DG couplings - magnet purchased, test track needs to be built, and couplings.
Ransome & Rapier breakdown crane (and train)
push pull set

Buildings:
Metcalfe LNWR signal box (why the woodwork is green I don't know)
Sea wall
Scalescenes large station (midland)- under progress on desk at work
Faller post office (intended to be pub / station hotel)
Smart Models terraced houses (B&B)
Smart Models pier building
Smart Models engine shed
detail LNWR station building
detail and finish goods shed
persuade wife to finish cinema so I can build a back for it -need to build back for it
finish Metcalfe timber framed shops - need to build backs
Finish Severn Brass vicarage kit
finish detailing church building
Metcalfe coaching inn

Structural work (baseboards and the like):
Plan depot as this is actually missing from track plan
build raised trackbed
lay track

so, enough to keep me occupied without queueing up any more jobs!

I can usually have a cardboard kit going at work in my lunch breaks (currently station) but can't do anything involving solvents for obvious reasons.

Couple more things crossed off the above list (details in the other thread)

This thread is going to move much more slowly and possibly end once the first bit of track is laid (so after I've built the raised section) and kept more for reference of what is yet to be done towards having a working layout.
