So sorry to read about the despicable actions of your former tenants Kevin.
Hopefully you will be back to normal soon with a new set of well behaved guests.
Meanwhile, those lights on the level crossing gates are amazing - an excellent way to relax.
Might I suggest a session in one of your harbourside hostelries as an additional tonic  :beers:

All the best
Martin

Amazing work, Kevin. Those gates are a marvel in 2mm Scale.

Many thanks, Kevin, for the lovely Windmill Hill mug which safely arrived, on the 15th, as I posted, here, the day after.

Smashing bit of modelling with the gates, Kevin, and I'm so glad you got rid of those  :censored: who have no respect for the property of others.

Yes, glad you got that nasty business sorted. Have a beer for me!!  :beers:

As to how you did the crossing lights, I already know -

Black magic, that's how!!! I can't see any fibre optics or wires!  :uneasy:

 :hellosign:

Thanks for all your messages ..... Thankfully I am getting all of the tenancy deposit back, which covers new carpets, and towards a professional clean, then out with the paint to redecorate ready for showing.

Before I forget, over on the electronics page I will put the gate lights tutorial up. I will do that now, then come back here and put a link to it  :thumbsup:

Sorry I missed your post Chris .... with all the hassle I've missed a few things here, but glad you got the mug safe, and thank you for all your help   :D

All bet wishes
Kevin

Hi All,

After putting up the gates tutorial, I went back to the house and cleared out 14 bags of rubbish, so things are getting there.

Currently chillin' out with a big bottle of cider, pizza, and got a couple of films to watch on youtube  :D :D :D

Have a great Easter everyone  :claphappy:

All best wishes
Kevin

Very glad that you got that very unpleasant situation tackled. Have a great Easter weekend. I hope there will be some trains running.

I see in the July issue of Railway Modeller they are starting a series on micro layouts. As such I have PMd Kevin and urged him to put Windmill Hill forward for inclusion. The forum has a great record of supplying layouts to feature in RM so fingers crossed.

The last I heard from Kevin he was "chillin' out with a big bottle of cider, pizza, and ... a couple of films to watch on youtube". He deserved the break but now needs to face the challenge of spotlighting Windmill Hill at RM. Full speed ahead, Kevin! You also deserve wider recognition for an outstanding achievement.
