Yes it's a bit like a one drag fag at the moment. I shall follow this with interest and see if I can get the seeds or plants here.

Are you sure it's not Triffid, Giant Hogweed or Deadly Lampshade? :uneasy:

Or the much feared Purple Dangler? :goggleeyes:

Chiltern Nurseries sell the seeds under the Latin name of Teloxys Aristata. A Google search produced several different names, confusing. I shall order a packet and sow them in December. Northern European plants seem to germinate better then as it's not too hot. I promise I wont smoke them. ::)

Not much happening at Geominster recently mainly due to an impending house move. It is time to live somewhere quieter and nicer than where we are at the moment so destination Cotswolds is in progress.





Geominster needs reducing slightly in length to fit this room but can have an extended section creating an "L" layout. Started planning this but I will leave the alterations until the move is complete.





The heritage line now has six Dapol Schools locomotives, all running well after slackening the screw attaching the front pony wheels a quarter turn

Good luck with the move.
Looks to be a fine house.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Not far from Moreton-in -the-Marsh it is a small village about two miles from Chipping Campden next to National Trust Hidcote. 👍

Good Luck with the move.  Look forward to seeing the alterations once you've settled in and get some spare time to adapt the railway to its new home.

Here is the first plan idea for the new home for Geominster. I need to trim about 400mm from the present length of the layout and intend shortening the mainline station slightly to accommodate the change and allow the mainline to continue via a viaduct and then a tunnel to return to both Nelevator and also the heritage station. I have included a couple of holding sidings which will be behind the viaduct, As the door is in the bottom corner there will be a near 360 degree view of the viaduct and should make an excellent visual feature. All subject to change of course.
Geominster was my first project which has now been dismantled.
