The life of a consultant sometimes can be detrimental to progress in other areas.
In this case, instead of specifying my railway, I’m currently spending a lot of time in London writing technical specifications for new trains. It is what I’m good at, and I enjoy doing it so I can’t complain.
In the odd times I have been back home, however, I have made progress with the MiniMes’ layout, much to their delight, including completing track laying and building a Superquick platform with MiniMe the elder. So I am now under increasing pressure from a couple of small tour de forces to get it finished. Next job is to complete the wiring up and then finish the – basic – scenery.
