Hi Al,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your preparations for Stevenage with us. I would be a nervous wreck.

I had hoped to make it but unfortunately it's not possible but will make special plans for Peterborough. I must see your lovely work in the flesh.

Hope you have a great time.

If in doubt, take a hip flask.

Cheers weave  :beers:

4 days to go. The four main scenic boards are bolted together ready for loading into the van. There's just a little bit of tidying up on the Erpeler Ley board with some wiring I'd forgotten about and the two end boards will be ready too.



In other areas thirteen stick boxes are packed ready to go. There's just one more to collect from Barrie Haigh who's been servicing the spare locos for me.



Tomorrow I should get around to packing up the tool and other stuff I might need to keep the layout running all weekend.

2 days to go and not a lot to show you tonight. The small wiring issue with the Erpeler Ley board got resolved, and the rest of the time was spent sorting tool boxes and cable boxes.

The Erpeler Ley board has been lifted down onto the floor ready git loading into the van. The other boards will follow it tomorrow.

1 day to go and this is looking scarily like I've got this organised.

We're all but ready for loading into the van.

A good night sleep tonight ahead moving it all to Stevenage tomorrow, and hopefully it'll all go back together run without too many issues all weekend.

They are home made.

Nothing more exotic then Fulscap box files from Office Depot with foam stock trays brought of ebay fitted inside. And finally sheet foam from Dunelm Mill laid over the top. Each box will hold a 12 coach train.
