Excitement and Confusion

The 'Festival of British Railway Modelling' last weekend in Doncaster produced a first for me - the purchase of an O9 kit from a manufacturer at a (very) mainstream event! It was good to see John Flower of A1 Models back behind his stand and he was happy to sell me his the latest version of the O9 loco kit, a reduced height version more suited to a 15" gauge passenger carrying railway.

Things have been rather quiet on the 'Up-cycle' front lately. The board sits unchanged and although the scenic features are slowly being painted, there is a dawning view that the work so far is a step on the path rather than the destination itself. I will expand on that idea another time after some further thought and experimentation has taken place...
