Chronicling the development of my Cambrian and Narrow Gauge 4mm scale model railway

Quiet but not idle

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. 

If it looks as if Toby is in dire peril, the board is to be placed on the floor and slid under the bed of MiniMe the elder so derailment won’t mean catastrophe.

Having now officially reached middle age, 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 to two rascally mini-mes, and trying to fit in railway modelling, assisting the GWR 1014 County of Glamorgan project, and visits to the top left hand corner of Wales. In addition to my heavily railway themed life, I am interested in rugby, cricket, reading crime novels, falconry, and medieval re-enactments.
