Thanks chaps!

Now all I need to do is keep it more or less up-to-date,which I will endeavour to do as and when something interesting comes along.

Looking forward to the 15th and the chance to meeting a few other members!

Nearly a disaster today...

I decided to get Kanjiyama out of the shed and into the garage to do some titivating, and to make it easier to load into the car on Saturday. I got to the shed only to find the heavy-duty padlock I use for the bolt had finally seized up.  :veryangry:

After much tinkering around, oathing and cursing, I had to resort to removing the screws in the bolt to open the door; and finding the right screw head was tricky (the bolt used star head screws).

Still, after spending time fiddling around with the lock and dodging rain/hail showers, Kanjiyama has now been erected in the garage. Hopefully I'll grab a couple of hours during the week before showtime on Saturday.

The lock on my shed seizes up every winter. In fact, this years seizure was discovered only this afternoon. I've developed a very quick technique with pliers, screwdrivers and copious amount of Wd40 for solving the problem. I suppose one day I'll get round to buying a new lock!

I think this may be terminal!

Still, things were worse last week when the car went wrong. I was having nasty visions of having no car next weekend; however it turned out to be a burned out rotor arm. Duly fix...phew!

Glad that you managed to 'break in' to your shed.
We have had our front door seizing up occasionally with all the rain. The problem is that we have quite a heavy security set up so at one point thought that we would be sleeping outside one night!!

I have now eased the door lock.

Next door though are having to go through their back garden to gain entry as their front door has completely seized!!

See you Saturday.

A good day was had at the open day on Saturday and fortunately there were no issues to report, with the layout running faultlessly once the points were properly cleaned!

A few pictures of Kanjiyama are below...

Absolutely gutted I let the meet-up pass me by. I hope you're bringing your layouts to more shows in future! I spent some time going through both the threads in your signature and I dayum I am jelly. Some wonderful, masterful work.

Thank you very much!

Yamanouchi Oshika has one 'date' this year - Rotorail at Fareham in April; whilst Kanjiyama's next outing is to the Berkshire N Gauge group's open day at Wokingham - 5th April.
