    Great news Toto. :thumbs: Sleeping should be much more enjoyable now,and you may as well get plenty of it before getting back to the grind stone...! Hopefully you will be able to report on some major progress with Luib Bridge.

    Cheers, Gary.

    Thanks Pete.
    A weight of my mind. Shed duties will now resume.
    Track, electrics and some soldering of Copper clad and track joiners etc. I can smell the burning already.

    Now here is something that Toto would like, but somehow I don't think it would look right on Luib Bridge... :avatar::avatar:

    Once again ........ bad man. The answer is ....... no ........ ahem ....... Paul ......... how did you say the modular extensions work again ?
    Not this one Gary. in saying that 2018 is a long way off. You never know what will be on the go by then. I can say that there will be another addition to the O gauge fleet soon though. Something that you will approve of. :avatar:
    cheers

    :facepalm: restraint grasshopper, restraint, place the card in SWMBO hand bag - its safer there, that is probably the only time anyone would say putting your plastic in the other halfs handbag !! :avatar:

    Well, back to grind - still clearing up after round 1 of the house moves - son done, daughter half done - our house like a war zone, including the man cave / railway room / everybodies tip

    There's a silver lining (so I'm told), I'm being allowed to take SWMBO grocery shopping, it just keeps on getting better :giggle:

    Well,
    Luib bridge may get a little push on as I may be visiting the messiah's this weekend. I'm a bit apprehensive about making a couple of joints with the copper clad ( on the baseboard join ) where the points meet the join.
    Its not in concrete yet but I have sought outline permission from SWMBO. Oh ........ and Paul knows as well.
    The rest of the track laying is a doddle. It will open up a whole new list of to do's. :avatar:
    anyway ..... I'll keep you all updated.
    cheers
    Toto

    And there may even some work done on Viccy Road - a move from the indoor man cave to the shed for paint work / bracing for the legs and backscenes.

    I've got the bacon in, and will get the rolls and donuts in - brain food :avatar:

    Yeah but no tinnies. I'm driving. :avatar:

    I may be able to fit both baseboards in the jallopy and the dowels could be fitted.
    I must remember to pack the rail joiners as well as the copper clad.

    Better get a list going.

    Cheers
