@Leon
That list should keep you going for a week or two Leon  ;). Seriously, don't rush, do a bit as and when you feel like it. Until yesterday, I had done nothig on my layout for over three weeks - partly through being ill and then having my brother and his wife stay for a few days last week, but I must admit, it was nice to do a bit again.  :). I look forward to some photo's - as and when.  :beers:

I hope to post a photo of my rolling stock on the tracks soon after my return from the UK in June.

Leon

Well, it's the end of July and that photo hasn't been shot, yet! I was sick (virus or allergies) for two weeks in late April and after a week in Scotland was again hampered with a repeat of the same symptoms, but much worse. Returning home from England in early June the symptoms became worse and persisted throughout most of July. I've felt much better the last two weeks (despite a cough) and have done a little work on the layout most days. I've planted trees and shrubs, cleaned track, added wagons to the sidings, and testing some of my used locomotives. As mentioned previously, I made a mess of a few points, but they will not be replaced until much later. I've discovered, though, that the ballast is too high between the rails in some places, so I'm having to scrape it away. When I've set up all the rolling stock (four passenger trains, two mineral/goods trains, and mixed wagons and coaches on the sidings) I'll shoot that promised photo - after which I'll have no more excuses for not modelling my building kits. Well, there is one excuse! I must tidy up my craft table to remove all the scenery materials and tools for a clean, flat surface on which to work.

Sorry you have not been well Leon. There is no need to rush the layout, or the photograph, health comes first.   :beers:

Quite right. Get yourself well first, Leon. The layout will still be there when you're ready to tackle it

Yes, don’t rush things Leon.
Get yourself fully back to health.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I feel so stupid!!!

I've spent thirty minutes trying to create a new topic. I've looked at a lot of links and tried numerous searches without success. I know I'm losing it (if I ever had IT), but surely there could be a more obvious way to start a new topic. No? Or, is it so obvious that having done it twice before I've lost more of my cognitive functions than I realized?

Help, please? (Help and FAQ in the menu didn't!)

I still feel stupid, but I don't give up! I've found a link, finally, so maybe I can move on.

Hi Leon ... if you go UP one on the bread-crumb trail (where it says N Gauge Forum » Your Layout and Models »
Layout Construction » ) to the Layout Construction level, you will see the option "New Topic".

Hope that helps!

Cheers  :beers:

Hope that helps!

GreyWolf, it did help! Sorry for taking your time, though, as I'd finally found that link. Maybe my eyesight is a greater problem than my memory?

Chris,

I ran across a post on another topic thread that I thought you might be interested to see (if you've not seen it already).

"Given all the huge price rises I imagine the market has shrunk a lot. I've bought one pacer in the past 2 years, and I might treat myself to another Union Mills loco or two but that's about it.

"The bigger problem for the hobby I suspect is that the next generation of railway modellers are going to be building virtual models when they retire and the simulators world models are getting extremely high quality - even if not yet very editable.

"Good point. I ran into a fellow a bit older than me on a bus a few months ago, who I was very good friends with  when I was in a club here in the early nineties.

"He was an excellent modeller and an electronics whizz (he designed and built all of the club's handheld controllers - indeed, I have one on my layout).

"When I asked him if he was still into model railways, he said exactly what you said. He told me he was, but virtual railway modelling.

"He sold all his models years ago!"
