Good to hear all is well, Mike, and that the great folks at the NHS are looking after you.

There is medical evidence that we have a finite number of heartbeats in our lives, so faster/more heart beats shorter lives.

Possibly your body is saving up the missing beats to let you live a little longer  :D

Thanks all. :thumbsup:

Ive done some calculations and can confidently  :worried: predict that at current resting heart rate I will now live until Im 104. This is unless I die of any one of 17,265 (approx) other conditions or causes in the meantime. :D

Photos from the Lincoln Model Railway Exhibition Ive just returned from will be posted later. May be poor quality Im afraid as my phone camera is pretty naff.

So you might see the Class 23. :D

I've also heard that everyone has a finite number of heart beats, so look on the bright side, you now have some extras to add on at the end.

The recent strong winds ripped a section of aging felt off the shed roof, leaving the bare planks exposed. As it is on the far end of the far side of the  shed, it was invisible when approaching. Last night, I nipped out there to play trains do a bit of work and spotted a damp patch on the roof lining. The good news is that the water that had got in had been mainly diverted along the top of the insulation and only a little had reached the lining below and so no damage to either the lining or the layout  :claphappy: I re-felted it today.

Phew, Steve. Glad you nipped that in the bud.
Hope you used stout fixings on the felt as we're in for another 'hoolie' today, I believe. :uneasy:

I've always felt it was worth while using felt adhesive to glue down the felt to the roof as well as nailing around the edges.

It's not going anywhere at the moment! I may cover it with a single EPDM sheet when I have the time, the weather and the money. The trouble is that the three rarely coincide.

In light of the recent medical posts here, I'd like to say a public thank you to all members of the forum (and you know who you are) who posted their concern and best wishes either on the forum or by pm during my recent extended stay in hospital.

Rest assured they were very much appreciated, and lightened up days when depression set in. In all their wisdom, the doctors finally let me go on Thursday, and although I have a moon boot, on crutches and still in a lot of pain, it sure beats hospital!!

Once again a BIG thank you to you all.  :beers: :beers:

This great forum is more than just model railways, for sure.  :thumbsup:

Good stuff George.

You can finally get back to the business of getting better. Mind you, your being in hospital did not seem to slow you down much posting wise.

Best wishes
