I'm radioactive  :confused1:
I've been told not to cuddle children or pregnant ladies for the next 24 hrs....

It wasn't the nicest test I've ever had! They ran sommat into my arm for six minutes which made my heart race (and made me feel :censored: awful) then they injected radioactive stuff that looked like wallpaper paste. I then had to wait one hour for the heart muscle to absorb the radioactivity, then it was into the scanner.

I have to go back for another one next Wednesday, but won't have to have my heart speeded up, just radioactive.

I managed to fit in an hours worth of ballasting when I got back. I'm itching to get on with rewiring the main module so that I can run trains again, but it's not worth starting it until I can spend a whole day on it.

No need to re wire.
With all that radio activity you should be able to get away with just touching the track. You could save a pretty penny on electricity  :D

My Mum had a radioactive injection last week but she never mentioned itching as a side effect :uneasy:

I'm itching to get on with rewiring

I did say I wouldn't hug her without using a geiger counter first ;)

I remeber changing samples in stainless steel cells from the neutron beam in Dido (at Harwell).  I never thought anything of it until I pointed a radiation monitor at one after I had changed it.  It went off the scale!  :-[ Fortunately, the next day, when I checked it again, the reading was zero. Phew!
With kind regards

I've had heart trouble all week - the doc gave me antibiotics for my chest infection, and either they or the infection itself have upset my heart.
This is EXACTLY the scenario from four years ago when I had my first big heart episode!
Next time I see him I'll have to ask which antibiotic he gave me four years ago - there might me a connection.

I've managed to do a bit of work today, stripping out the power bus on the main scenic module.



So many loose hanging wires!

I now have two buses fitted (after this photo), so that the next time I feel energetic enough I can re-wire the two main outer track circles so that I can at least run some trains when I feel like it!

We had to pull out of our last scheduled show with our scenery shop ( at Maldon) as I was too ill.
We are going to give it a try at our club open day tomorrow and see how I get on. There will be plenty of friends there that can help us if need be.

I've managed to load the car up ready, so that's a good start!

Thanks guys.

Well I survived  :D

I had an angina attack after unloading but my GTN spray took care of that quickly.

We had a quiet day with the sales, but this was just our open day, not a full exhibition.

I managed to pick up three really nice books on early diesels, 20 each when new, absolutely mint for a quid each.
A PD Marsh set of white metal schoolchildren (for my school) for a quid.
A pack of 20 on/off/on DPDT switches very cheaply for my isolated sections.

...and I'm exhausted  :smiley-laughing:
