:hiAfter "Time Out," so as to speak, when New Dawn has lain idle, two more years of Home Education with my youngest grandson, who is now 9yrs gives the opportunity to swing the axe on New Dawn layout and start afresh, so during the Summer/ early Autumn New Dawn will be dismantled, and rather than tear out the old boards, we'll raise new ones above to give a blank canvas in every way and we can wire between the new boards and the old New Dawn boards which is better as under New Dawn has been storage and dangling wires have been a pain. 

Samson and I will work on this one. Josh who worked with me on New Dawn is now 15yrs, so I expect he will come into the frame and Jacob who is 12yrs will probably come in via the technology side.

I still have all my DC engines and about three DCC, so the new layout will be mixed and as the boys have grown up, I can think differently towards it. I have a lot of kit that I have never used on the electrics etc. When I retired early I did go overboard on buying through car boot and ebay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So outlay will be structural and this time will need thinking through rather than the urgency which fired New Dawn 1 and 2.

Summer Hols in between dog minding and visitors will give the space I hope to dismantle.

So hey ho .............................. nice to be back! ................... and good wishes to old friends ..................... regeneration is possible like Dr Who BUT I can't get younger! Ah well!:roll:

:cheers
