Just putting together some Kato lineside/yard huts.  Kato 23-226 from Keith at Traintrax contains 4 kits, so just one to go :)

I'm still making progress, despite the hot weather.  I wouldn't have been quite so keen if I was still playing in the old loft, but with all five windows open the current mancave is officially the coolest room in the house :)

All the unballasted track is a recent addition, three Kato 20-202 #6 turnouts giving access to four new sidings at this spot.

I've also knocked up a stylish portable lever frame to give control over the new additions before they get plumbed into the DCC side of things :thumbsup:

Hi Steve,

All looking good.

Is Keith at Traintrax going on a cruise with your money?  :D

Great stuff.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Why is the black kettle trapped under the plastic case? It looks quite harmless to me.

Also, the orange 201 series next to a 101 is in principle correct, but the 101 should be yellow for accuracy.

It's already escaped from the rails so further adventure has been terminated ;D

To remind me to replace the decoder I stole from it.  So far, itís not working :no:

Ho-ho.  That would be a slippery slope.  Before long Iíd add a Maranouchi subway set and the world would have yet another Ochanomizu Station layout to contend with :D

Ok, how does this happen.... idle saturday morning, catching up with forum threads in between work meetings.... catch up with Capital lines and 3 hours later find myself with a £1000 (admitedly 50% postage at this stage) ... in an unfiltered (wallet strength filter followed by SWMBO filter) shopping basket! 

Capital lines should have a (w)health warning slapped on it  :D

there were a couple of loco's that caught my eye ... so they have bumped the price up!  I haven't asked for a combined postage yet, so that will bring it right down ... but I am only half way through the 4000+ items they have listed  :laugh3:

I should say ... I was just slapping everything that caught my eye into a shopping basket ... will go back through and do a cull when I reach the end of the listings :)

Arrived from TrainTrax yesterday but not even opened: a pack of 10 intermodal wagons :goggleeyes:




Also arrived yesterday, and the reason for my intermodals still being in the box, is Molly.

8 weeks old yesterday, a female Sprocker Spaniel who is our latest little beauty :heart2:

Used to have a spaniel too, beautiful dogs, so friendly, mad as a hatter tho, and Molly looks lovely.

Cheers, Timmo

Hi Steve,

What a lovely looking dog.

Now, being sensible for once and for Molly's teeth. You might know this but I've been told by vets and many other dog people that one should only throw/give absolutely knackered tennis balls to dogs. New or slightly new ones are an absolute disaster for their teeth. Here endeth the lesson but thought I would share.

So jealous of your layout and your new little puppy friend.

Cheers weave  :beers:

In Dog We Trust - wonderful little pooch, Steve. Though I'd never heard of a Sprocker Spaniel before. Thank you, I've learned something new today.

I had not heard that tennis balls were bad for dogs, Weave. Consulting Dr Google, it seems that the danger lies in their propensity to chew them causing either worn down teeth or a choking hazard. That makes two things I've learned today.
