It must be me ? Finding my blog is almost impossible.

I've just spent 10 minutes trying to find my Blog, there used to be a link found by ones name icon, but I can't find it now. Perhaps they're old hat and destined to vanish ?

Thought I'd add what I've been doing since lock-down, O.K it started before that.

With my mate Derek we made an inglenook shunting puzzle layout, always popular with club members and went out a few times without myself, or Derek present. It was

damaged and I then put my foot down at the end of last year saying it would never go out again without me being there.

There was then pressure for us to make a specific Club layout. It fell to me as the requirements are very exacting and it was supposed to be a club project. Just before lock-down I was presented with the 48" x 16" layout board.

I laid the track, tested, and sorted out the problem resulting from using Frog Juicers. In the very limited track the frog juicers were creating spikes that disturbed the locomotive decoders. I had to make up a small circuit to dampen out the spikes. Wasn't expecting that little problem !!

 

After 5 months it's almost finished, scenics as well, just tidying up now, although the list of minor jobs is longer than I'd expected before I began putting it on paper !!

Here we have a few pictures :-

 

The Headshunt end.

A rescued building from a 'late' club member, salvaged from a dismantled layout.

I wish I could do better signs, but 4 point type face is my printers limit and I can't do white on a black background that's readable.

Just before 12.00, waiting for the gates.

It's the driving that counts !!

If you click on your user name at the top right of the page, a drop down menu will appear. Click on "profile" and this will open a page with a link to your blog. A bit long-winded but it's how I do it.
