I've just made a batch of ginger and cranberry Welshcakes.

 

The thought of those ought to boost your mojo!

Morning Buddy, How's the mojo after your break in the fresh air of Wales, any plans ?

Need to un pack some bits, but other things taking priority at the moment, I may go into TOPS later for a bit.

 

Cheers

Bits unpacked and I've been back into Tops. :sungum:

 

I wasn't completely convinced by Dore End, and so whilst away I looked at and doodled MANY alternatives. 

 

Not able to find a suitable plan, and also the fact that even the 25 struggled with some Buffer locking on the curve, and so I was going to add a link to the Locos to make the coupling loops longer, but that would have looked STUPID on the strait bits.

 

So I've gone back to the original idea of just using one side of TOPS.

No wonder old Bodgit's been quiet over the last few days!

You've remained very quiet about that big grey block on the other side of TOPS.

 

I've had my magnifying glass out, and await any announcement with interest. Whatever

I bet those acres are getting the old grey cells working overtime.

I have too, and I think I can just about read what it says . . .
Would I be right Mr P?! ;-)

That’s a bit drastic!

You need a more fluid source of stock! While I develop a new model rental service, maybe you should go into partnership with someone in the weathering trade. You can extensively test stuff from their queue, then just give it back when plans next change!

Well, if you weren’t happy, best to change it now. Looks like the mojo is returning
