Penlowry

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

Quiet but busy

1 Comment

I always know when my boys are up to no good. They go quiet. I wouldn’t say I’ve been up to no good but I have been busy – mainly because I’ve been on holiday!

T’missus, as is her way, hit the nail on the head when she said my office / railway room had descended into chaos. She was right, but I’d have labelled it a right sh!thole!

So some organisation has gone on (as well as a fantastic night away – the first without the MiniMes since they came on the scene – to celebrate 10 years of t’missus putting up with me).

Cupboard under the baseboard for the scenery materials made out of the remains of the kitchen peninsula we removed some time ago.

Organised the stock.

Went to Driffield steam fair.

Perused the Patriarch’s library.

Erected a display cabinet for those things that don’t fit the Penlowry timeframe.

And gone through a load of old memories.

Oh and done some preliminaries for another model…

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 and Beamish. In addition to my heavily railway themed life, I am interested in rugby, cricket, reading crime novels, falconry, and medieval re-enactments.
