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

Propelled into productiveness

I’m not quite sure what has come over me. Whether it was staying up until 5.30am Friday morning to watch the drama. Whether it was getting 12 hours sleep last night to recover. Whether it was conducting a 5 year old birthday party. Well whatever it was I’ve had a burst of activity. 

I’ve had my eye on a knackered old plastic tub that t’missus has had since before we were married. It was cracked and assigned to the rubbish but I couldn’t part with something with so much potential could I?! 

Instead I cut it as shown to remove the cracked bit and got myself a spray booth. 


It even still has one handle as a handy carrier. 


Add in the milk tankers and off I went.

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.
