  1. Can empathise with how It is an absolute nightmare for anyone involved with organising any public events, small or large....'we' have charitable garden open days and these are impossible under current guidance and rules....just have to sit tight and wait in hope for better days......the old adage of 'hope for the best and plan for the worst' holds firm these days! Regards always and keep safe guys... Bob
  2. Posted only tongue in cheek this...and just to lighten the mood.....Sad either way for sure. (Warley) - Cancelled or postponed? Regards always... Bob

    Hi.... Mea culpa! Hope you're well my friend.... Yes, I'd did realise the error of my ways only last evening when I could see that the box was up in the air somewhat...so will have to correct that faux pax. Regards always Bob

    Evening Guys..... Hope you're all well....? Have fashioned a retaining wall out of some scrap pieces of walling for next to the signal box....intend to infill and then produce a small grassy bund covering....any suggestions on how to produce this effect easily...? As it is such a small area, leaning towards using a paper mache technique with newspaper/ pva... akin to this? Regards always Bob

    Evening Guys...Hope all are well....? A few further images of how I see the basic structure and layout of Cambrian Street station itself to be panning out....undoubtedly there'll be additions, deletions and tweaks as we go along though...... Comments appreciated as always...... Regards always Bob

    Afternoon all. hope that everyone is safe and well...? Just a small piece of 'fettling' on the Cambrian Street to ease back into it..... Have cut away the required amount to shape the back edge of the 'local' platform..... ..and as an aside....as 60th birthday present to myself I have aquired something that I have long sort to obtain.... an exloco condition Stourbridge shed plate....it is still grimy and sooty too... Stourbridge being my 'local shed'.... Regards always guys, stay safe please... Bob

    Hi Guys, Hope all are well and safe....... Now that the 'lockdown garden revamp is complete'........(almost).....evening time can be spent 'tatting' to keep under control......if as is hoped a resumption of possibly a day at least will be permitted back on the SVR at Arley in the not too distant future...... ...and of course .........the serious stuff can be revisited soon hopefully? Regards always, Bob
