Not a lot done this week as my first grandchild, Joshua Harding, made his way into this uncertain world. He's a little belter, much Thomas stuff will be bought soon. Now the excitement has died down, the connecting rods will be milled, the coupling rods are done. I will be posting pictures (when able) of the scale of the problem and the completed rods. The scale of the problem has grown after Winchester Railway Modellers' clear out, I have acquired the basis of my proposed O gauge plank, this being some track, 4 Peco points, a transformer, controller and some structures. The layout will be designed round these, so should be a fairly painfree process.
