2) I honestly think I would enjoy the hobby less if I wasn't involved in with this forum   :NGF:
It is a truly excellent resource. I don't know I'd still be soldiering on without somewhere to come and ask stupid questions.

So sorry for being a drama queen yesterday 
Far better than chucking it all in the bin... Then when SWMBO calms you down, you've got to fix: a) what was originally wrong and b) the damage the bin did as everything clattered in... (Been there, done that, got the T-Shirt... )

The great thing about N gauge is that it is small and you can get a lot in a small space. The bad thing about N is that it is small and fiddly.

I have a free standing LED light circle with a magnifying glass in the middle which I find is essential for working in N gauge.
My other railway is G scale - not at all fiddly but everything has to be made very strong. Every scale has its good and bad points.

To be honest I am feeling a bit sheepish now after some sensible words from SWMBO

It worked!! Nice one, Biggy. You can now have parcels delivered left, right and centre without getting the Spanish Inquisition as you have full permission (you did get it in writing, didn't you? :uneasy:)

Sometimes you've got to just vent

Please do not attempt this after consumption of a laxative :no:

If I'm trying to chip a loco that wasn't designed to be chipped, well fine. On my own head be it. But we shouldn't have to puzzle the construction and assembly out, then struggle with hidden clips or trapped wires so as to end up breaking things when carrying out what is supposed to be an end-user task. And a selling point for the loco, for Pete's sake!

It's just poor design.  :veryangry:

I couldn't agree more. It is very frustrating when things that should be simple aren't. Especially if any damage caused is then non warranty 😤
Not sure its supposed to do that

Congratulations @Biggy for getting back on track!

I know N gauge is fiddly and as a long-sighted, cack-handed, electrically clueless pensioner embarking on the N adventure I know I will have to rely on the services of all sorts of folks, from the wonderful SWMBO, to the proprietors of numerous railway model emporia, to good friends, and to the inestimable powers of the collective brain-power of this amazing Forum.

You have all these at your side, so share the load and get back to enjoying the joy of it all.

Onwards and upwards indeed. :thumbsup:
Mike

I've been there several times but I'm too tight ar..fisted to chuck things in the bin. :o Glad you've decided to stay.
