No work on the layout today unfortunately due to my injuries. No way I can climb under the layout after removing the dressings on my leg. It does not look infected but a trip to the doctors to make sure seems like a good idea. I have redressed the wounds to keep them clean but they are still painfull. It is unfortuate I can not get access to the viaduct board from the outside of the layout, I could remove a corner module but there is no rush.

The next stage is to add scatter etc and bushes and maybe a tree or two, this is part of what I enjoy doing most on the layout. I also work on the hill to the right before fixing the factory unit in place. I will makes things difficult for myself If I fix the factory first.I have already knocked another of the telegraph posts off the side of the viaduct, for a second time, they are very flimsy.

Hi Chris,
Sorry to hear about your mishap but glad you are feeling well enough to continue modelling. My modelling work is shelved for now as i am under orders to sort the garden and a few jobs around the house. Still have time at some point in the day to check on the forum and see what is going on.

A update folks, Bad News the lower wound was infected, just going a little red round the outside is a clue, it was not getting hot though. I am now on a course of antibiotics, trouble is that is playing around with my guts and I already have chrones disease to contend with. Good news the upper wound is painful but seems to be healing ok, other small injuries incurred seem to be ok too. I just need to be patient and let things heal, its stopped me walking and doing my modeling. lucky I have more than one hobby in my old age, at least I can still play my music.
With reference to the railway modeling I finished the loading ramp which is in position, you can see it in position if you look carefully at my pics. luckily I did not fix the factory in place,I remembered I need to work on the hillside first when I can get to it.

Thanks everyone for all the good Get Well wishes.

As Father Ted would say "Go careful now'
Give yourself time to heal, Chris.

That's your problem Chris - you are supposed to use your hand for writing, not your leg!  :smiley-laughing:

Hi Chris.  For my longer pieces, I write it all out in Word first and save it.  Then I can cut and paste it into the forum.  I started doing that after I had a similar experience to you when I wrote it all in the little window and then lost it all.  :angel:
With kind regards

Hi everyone, last night I managed a bit of work on the factory unit and hillside. I put some scatter on the hill and some surrounding ground works.
I would have done more tonight but have removed the dressing off my leg wound so I need to take care with it, no on my knees under the baseboard seemed like a good idea. Some air to it should be good, now its looking a lot better, although still a little painfull.
Hopefully some more work can be done this weekend on the scenery around the factory.

Sorry to hear about your accident Chris.  Hope you recover soon.  I fell out of a tree whilst  picking cherries last week.  Left hanging by one ankle until I could manoeuvre around to pull myself back up.  No lasting damage just a bit of swelling and bruising.  Funny thing was my son asking my wife what I was doing climbing trees at my age!  The pupil has become the master eh?

Hi everyone, well on the way to recovery now, my leg is a lot better. The railway room is a bit out of bounds with this heat wave, although stopped the work on the railway I love warm weather and have been out walking.

A nice surprise today, some more goods stock and a surburban coach from Cant Cove, they seem to have been transferred by express, thanks Chris.
