Chronicling the development of my 5-gauge 4mm scale model railway with a few off-topic insights thrown in for free

The big sort

I am slowly sorting through the boxes of STUFF. Everyone has boxes of stuff. T’missus called one of them “The box of doom” but frankly that one was child’s play compared to some ice had to contend with over the last couple of days. I am refusing to put anything in the loft without looking at the contents first. I think this is a sensible plan in the long run but the pain in the short term is pretty bad. 

Occasionally, however you do come across some gems. 

The picture shows one of the ‘box diagrams for Allan Garraway’s railway. In my earlier post when Allan passes away, I posted my incomplete diagram which I had started drawing to replace the ones he’d drawn years previously. Here is a photocopy of the original which I was copying. 

  
I’ll put this up one day in my man cave. Not because it has any value, but because it reminds me of some great times. I’d say they were JGF but they were too good for that!

Now in my fourth decade, I am a rolling stock engineer and have worked in many different locations including a 7 year spell in Sydney, Australia, where I arrived with a suitcase and left with a wife and a son. I am now based back in my home county of Yorkshire where I juggle full time work, being a Dad, and trying to fit in railway modelling and visits to volunteer on the Ffestiniog Railway. In addition to my heavily railway themed life, I am interested in rugby, cricket, reading crime novels, falconry, and medieval re-enactments.
