Trains have been running on it for some time now (with a serious reduction in rate-of-construction)

I know that feeling only too well as, if I'm going to fit point motors (and it's my intention) then pretty much everything has to come up, and with decrepitude catching up with me I'm not so sure it will ever go back together again :uneasy:

Oh and seeing the work of Ray Taylor and his partner tipped it for me.

Mostly space..
I had 00 when young, but have always wanted N as it seemed more realistic.
Now I am starting again with a view to building it with my grandson.

recently my neighbour asked me to have a look at a hornby 8f he had found when clearing out his late fathers house. i cleaned it up and got it going.  but it was like holding a concrete block compared to my n gauge locos.
i used to be indecisive...but now i'm not so sure.

At least you didn't say "building it for my grandson" as we all know that's a poor excuse ;)

I have a terrible 'I want that' mentality when I see something interesting. I was in Edinburgh last year, (for a cup of tea at Hollyrood House), and was out early the morning of the event for a wander with the camera. I made the fatal mistake of wondering if Harburn Hobbies was in the same place, spotted the Farish Highlander set in the window and that was me away down the road, justifying to myself that it was a great idea to buy one.
I eventually got one from TMC in March this year, just as Covid-19 was rearing its ugly head. I hate YouTube, it's cost me a small fortune since March but, probably saved a fair bit too in making my own scenery out of sponges and lichens gathered up the woods... :)
