It was a once a year outing, Castell Mawr back in the shed again.
While it does everything I wanted at the time, it has become something of a white elephant. Too big to have up and running
at home. I can just assemble on our patio which is high and catches wind, easily enough to take stock off !!
I really don't know what to do with it ? Jamie one of the original group of 4 builders/planners came down to Dorset from Cambridge
just to run it for a day, he had a great day and so did I.
Seriously though what do I do ?? I'm too old to hire just a van, so I need to have a van and driver to take it anywhere and with just
me and one helper it takes over 4 hours to set up. No it's not that complex, but to keep storage requirements under controlthe boards
are all packed tightly into pods. This prevents any but the smallest buildings being attached. Every vehicle, person, building, signal
has to be attached after initially getting all on it's legs and checking all electrics are working
Last year it was voted best in our show and this year missed out by just 3 votes, so people DO like it, but practicallities of something
this size when you're 77 say it's cloe to the end.
My Fiddle Yard is scenic exchange sidings
A busy builders materials yard

Could you break this up ??
