I like the idea very much and look forward to seeing it all fixed down. :thumbsup:

Just a quick update from Geominster, I have been busy and not had a lot of time for layout progress but I did make this little video showing the GF Class 40 sound and Dapol silver bullet wagons. Not one for rivet counters so look away now :-)

I have now bought two more wind turbines and waiting for the PCB controllers so they can be erected, and once that is done I can work on the area around Nelevator and restock it ready to work. Still plenty to do but the dark days of winter will allow more time to be spent on scenics, some of the hill and farm area needs planning and completing and the town is desperate for ideas and work to be started.

Geominster was my first project which has now been dismantled.

Having learnt so much from Geominster this is the new project.

Smashing vid, George, but I'll try not to think what that train of Silver Bullets cost :goggleeyes:

A bit of an update but more of an explanation. We have been expecting to move for a while now so nothing much has been done at Geominster, a few items prepared for the proposed alterations but really waiting for the move to become confirmed hopefully very soon but suspect Christmas will delay things so it might not be until the New Year.

So a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all and hope Santa delivers the goods.

Speaking personally, if the move could not be made before Christmas I'd rather hunker down and do it early in the New Year. Fingers crossed you get the result you want, George.

It has been ages, we moved last day of February and Geominster came downstairs over the bannisters and to store, all 3.6 metre length of it. Thanks to Tim for his hard work and help.

The downside is that now it is in the garage it is too big to negotiate the stairs or first floor window to reach the room assigned for it.

A new Geominster is being planned with many new ideas and a few old pieces re used. Watch this space for details soon.

Thanks for viewing, nice to be back.

Sad to read of the end of the line for Geominster. Very much looking forward to new Geominster! :beers:

Thanks, will post the initial plan soon. I hope to have four lines running at same time, so the grandchildren can have a taste without having to watched too closely and as I love to watch trains running will also please me. Looking forward to starting but probably not till autumn but may find time to construct the baseboards before then.

Let's hope the Nelevator survived the move intact! :uneasy:
