Good afternoon all

It’s a sad day today.

After a decade the layout is being packed up and placed into long term storage (otherwise known as “the loft”) and it’s future isn’t certain.

All good things must come to an end and the imminent arrival of Mini Skyline means we are one room short.

After negotiations with the management, the former railway room is to become Mini Skyline territory and I am merging railway activities with Mrs S and her Rainbow / Guiding work in a newly refurbished office.

It’s not all bad for n gauge in this house though; the negotiations resulted in planning permission for the new exhibition layout (around which part of the office has been designed) and I still have plenty of N gauge projects to be working on.

As for Filton TMD, one of two things will happen:

1) It will be sold off at some point.
2) It will remain in storage until such time as the Mini Skyline shows any interest in resurrecting it.

To all those who have read, commented and / or given advice: Thank you!

Hopefully it won’t be too long before the NAPA TMD thread become more active, and I should have some workbench activities to share.

Finally, come and say hello on the N Gauge Society stand / neighbouring “Depot de Camion” at TINGS!

Well in theory it will be stored ready to show, so time will tell on that!
