On Tuesday, Mini-me2 slept for the first time in a big bed. This may seem an odd way to start a post about model railways but bear with me.
Until Tuesday, the spare bed was in my office. Not only was there the inconvenience of being chucked out of my office whenever someone visited (I work from home a minimum of 3 days a week), but also it was the elephant in the room preventing me from building up the rest of the baseboards for Penlowry.
The spare bed is now Mini-me2’s bed and when people visit he will be chucked out and will sleep in the bottom bunk of the bunks in Mini-me1’s room.
So now my work won’t be disturbed when people visit and I get the added bonus of the space I’ve been planning for.
Today’s job was putting up the other half of the original scenic section. It would have gone a lot smoother had I not made the joint leg too well and the screws holding it together not refused to come back out for adjustment, but following some persuasion which proves how well the boards were built in the first place, the two halves are now up and some drawing out of the new track plan can begin.
(And yes, I know Tower Bridge and the Roman catapult aren’t quite to scale but they were both good fun to build).
