         I’m currently trying to decide if I should heed the advice of friends and fit a heated floor downstairs…..but if I allow any more complications – I may never get this ruddy railway built….! Anyway….I’m assessing the added cost and delay at the moment….


    Our house was a new build around 12 years ago, so no comparison to your venture. But we have underfloor heating throughout. I realise that the comparison is of limited relevance, but the experience of underfloor heating, and not having carpets, is exceptional!

  2. Marvellous inspiration there, @Mikkel. Now I need to research whether I can get a stable into SR of 1938! :D

    maybe the HMRS or similar. It would require more thorough research though.


    My only suggestion would be to clearly delineate the stables in the photos and maps. You have in most later cases, but I spent a long time over Westbury trying to figure out how the two images related. I thought that I had the stables nailed (I had, confirmed when I scrolled down to the third image), but it took some time to match that up with the map...and come to the conclusion that the map wasn't totally accurate, unless the cattle pens had moved and the good shed demolished, of course.

  3. As something tends towards infinity it becomes everything, and its reciprocal becomes nothing. But infinity doesn't exist in real terms, so there is no nothing only things that aren't everything.


    Alternatively, there's the difference between specialists and generalists:

    A generalist knows less and less about more and more, until eventually he knows nothing about everything.

    A specialist knows more and more about less and less, until eventually he knows everything about nothing.

  4. Dave, we should all aspire to something, no matter how little that something is. You've just taken it to its logical conclusion, and I think you're doing a fantastic job. Soon your non-blogs will surpass your blog entries.


    You might even start a trend. I for one am thinking of my own non-blog (since I have little enough worth blogging about at the moment), so I will look to you for tips.

  5. So impressive, it makes me want to cry over my own inadequacies. :(

    A friend of mine, who used to live in Northumbria, and I were on a business trip to Canada, and we latched on to a tour of a forest (or something that I can't remember). As the tour guide pointed out that the trees were almost a thousand years old, Mike turned to me a grinned "oh, so almost as old as Whitby Abbey then!"
