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

Nearly there

You know that bloke that carves things on a pin head? He did a crown for the Queen and has a resting heartbeat of about 25 and carves in time with his heart while holding his breath.

Yeah well that’s not me. When I was in my youth doing Airfix aircraft I always hated the small fiddly transfers. In those days I had good eyesight. Now I don’t have good eyesight and I still don’t like doing fiddly transfers. Therefore the “FR 59” on the clock side and “RhFf 59” on the engine side was plenty for me. The “To load 5 tons distributed evenly” and its Welsh equivalent can sod right off given I’d have to do it in 1mm high letters.

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.
