It is a great pleasure to reply to you: one ‘young” old man to another. (Going into my 70th year!)
I thoroughly enjoy all of your mail and find it most useful and educational. I returned to model railways about six years ago when grandchildren started to arrive – eight at the present. The theme was/is ‘Thomas’ designed on a folding track board for table-top use, but also easy storage. I did enjoy the wiring. A few photos attached for interest.
Now that I have moved house, my next plan is to build a table 10’6″ x 4′. (Or 12’6″ if I am allowed!!) Table top planks in three sections will be removable with folding-down aprons to reveal the train track etc. You’re right: now I have a large ‘hall’ space so the set does not have to be continually moved – just covered for “table uses”.
Building of the table should start shortly.
Enough of me. Thank you again for all your support. I am most grateful.
Loved Peter’s wiring. I imagine there was a fair bit of head scratching going on there. And if you looked at it and wondered what was going on, take the plunge with this and get up to speed.
Don’t forget the ebay cheat sheet – some cracking stuff about at this time of year.
That’s all this time, folks. Please keep ’em coming.
