Hi all, I'm finishing off the area around our chapel. One eyesore is the floodlight, which will have to stay until the room is decorated, plus fitting floodlighting from the ceiling. It all has to sit properly in my mind, so even areas that are difficult to see, like the back of the chapel, it is all fenced, with a gate access, trees as well as grass for John to cut. This view is as if you were climbing on top of the petrol station roof. It's not safe for climbing, crawling boards must be used.

Hi all, Dry, warm & sunny days are best when we are out enjoying them, I have been out today, but as I've explained previously, early morning light & evening light are so good for colour matching. I'm gradually working my way around our railway, rejuvenation area by area. Bramble Lane station the latest to get some brush. Bramble Lane was the first station on our railway, but nowadays constantly faces closure. The station house remains the area admin centre, as well as the need for the box to control the gates. The introduction of the new service to Rugby via Gosford Green is hoped to improve the fortunes & revenue. Well, it is in my mind, hey! I'm also so aware that it will soon be Pam's birthday, as well as her first anniversary of not living here anymore. It's not superstition, but Pam loved our railway looking smart, so hopefully I will have completed the rejuvenation before the end of this month.

Hi all, Bramble Lane station virtually complete, including rhododendron bushes, an invasive plant but is so colourful, producing flowers in so many different colours even on the same bush.

Hi all, hello JLR, My daughter-in-law Angela has always wanted a VW campervan, so true to the fiction of our Hall Brooks story, she has one, parked outside her new home. Her home was originally the home of my late best friends Ted & Jean. In real life, Jean worked with Pam NHS style, whilst Ted was a Co-op dairy drayman, from Swan Lane in Coventry. I do hope Angela enjoys her campervan. PS. I'm just doing the egg sarnies now.

Hi Wearethemods, They are produced by Oxford Diecast specifically for both 4mm/ft, as well as 2mm. They are usually available off eBay.
