The news regarding your wife's health must be a worrisome burden John and I offer my heartfelt and sincere best wishes for happier times ahead for you and Mrs John.

We're all rooting for you both, so do what you need to do and come chat when you're able.

Best,

Bill

Sadly my wife, who many modellers will have met at shows we attended, has been diagnosed with pancreatic and liver cancer.  The prognosis does not look good.

The ongoing situation with my wife has meant that I haven't been able, either in terms of time or concentration, to do any modelling over the last month or so. 

What I have been able to do, though, in short bursts, is to go through the stock list I have on a spreadsheet, in particular locos, updating on where they are located (boxed, on the layout, in storage, awaiting repair or on the workbench), whether they have been DCC'd and if so what decoder is installed, their DCC loco number and their value. I have been especially surprised at the number of DCC locos which haven't been used for some time which now don't work for one reason or another. 

This activity is also worthwhile doing to update the value of your layout, not just to include locos and rolling stock but also all the peripheral accessories, of which there are probably many including scenic items and electronic additions (including loco decoders, accessory decoders, point motors, block detection, mimic panels, etc.), not forgetting the control system itself, in order to make sure that everything is covered for insurance purposes.The results can be surprising!

If you don't have a record of what you have or haven't updated it for some time then this is a very worthwhile task - I found a number of items I had bought some time ago and hadn't recorded - especially if, like me, you are planning for the future and possibly passing on the task of disposal to someone else.  Experience has taught me to always expect the unexpected.

John,

May your God give you and your wife the strength to get through this difficult time.

Its a sobering thought that after years of modelling and purchasing items, the day may come when the layout outlives us and disposal falls to the next of kin.  Having a detailed inventory is sound advice and should make this task easier

Very sorry to hear your sad news John, please accept my deepest condolences.

Lost my Mum at the age of 95 at the end of March, and I still find it difficult some days.

As many have said to me, life goes on.

I know that won't help a lot, but I'm sure all the forum member's thoughts are with you.




Ed
