Since my last blog I have had a few up's and down's. (Down for Sydney, up for Home).
A few weeks ago, on a Monday Morning, my wife had an early appointment, so after Breakfast I said, you go, and I will wash the breakfast dishes, and make the bed.
I made the bed alright, so that I could get back into it. I strained my back, pulling the bed cover up into position. There I remained for the following 5 days.
I started to come good just in time to travel to Sydney for the Train Show at Rosehill Racecourse on the June long weekend. The wife and I went down to Sydney on the Friday, show on Saturday, home Saturday Night.
I must congratulate Epping Club members on an excellent show, all good quality layouts worth viewing, well laid out and plenty of room to move.
At the show, I was able to pick up some detail items I wanted, Split Rail Fencing, Signals, Level Crossing Signs, Ground Point Indicators, and on order and not too far away, Yard Lights for Campbelltown. These lights are "dummies" as I am not going to run 2 wires around the entire layout just to light these up. The other thing was that the dummies are in packs of 2 for $11.00, the lit ones are $34.00 each. I need at least 5 or 6.
I have assembled the Signals, Level Crossing Signs and the Split Rail Fencing, and they are all in position.
While in my stupid mood, I went around and weathered what required weathering, Fencing, Stock Yard, Coal Stage, where ever the brush would reach.
It's surprising what a difference the weathering makes to an object, when viewed from a distance.
When the lights go in, I will post some up dated photos, but thought I would just keep you informed of what has been happening over these last few weeks.
Cheers for now.
