Recommended Posts

Just a heads up, Jon Grants got Sweethome Alabama at Hull exhibition next weekend.

 

 He's been adding some extensions to each end of the layout,i've seen and worked the left end (timber loading point)

don't know what he's doing with the other,think he said something about propane tanks, will have to wait and see on Friday setup,god know's how long the layout is now,if he keeps on extending we'll need a artic to move it around!!!!.

I think I might have to see about making the trip - inspiration and such. :)

Come along and have a crack, the layouts worth the entrance fee on it's own,i'll be the one with the beard and silly hat,come to think of it we'll all be wearing silly hats.

Ah! the dulcet tones of John H's Banjo,they send me to sleep every time i here them!!!!,or is it the numerous pints of beer,can't remember which,to be honest,i don't mind the Banjo playing it adds to that Southern feel the layout has,it's those unionist spies yo've got to watch out for with there scissors!!!

Well he's finally done it,Sweethome Alabama has won a trophy at Hull exhibition,for best scenic

layout(i think),cracking weekend,though a bit tiring (must keep out of pubs with 16+ hand pumps)

the extension Jon has added, add that little bit more to the operation.

Sorry about the lack of NS loco's,these photo's were take on my rest periods and it always seemed to be CSX,it now take 3 operaters to run Sweethome,one on the main,one swiching the local industies,and one on the lumber train down the branch,that leave's one spare(rest,or look round).

 

If you have any question about the photo's i'll try and answer them.
