With a heart rate of 150 Kevin, you were certainly tripping the light fantastic !!!

When my ticker started to ignore normal requirements, it accelerated to 140.  They plugged me in to a whole host of funny looking TV screens and other gadgets and wouldn't let me out until it had droped below 100, which, in the event,  was only 2 days later.

Hopefully, yours will do the same.  They'll put you on some kind of daily Smarties and Robert will be your mother's brother ......................

Take things easy - no prizes for being first in the box ......................

Cellulitis is a right bar steward Kevin, you have my fullest sympathy.

The antibiotics aren't great either, found out earlier this year I'm now allergic to penicillin, terrible rash and was affecting my breathing. A call to 111 at five o'clock in the morning, after no sleep through itching, suggested antihistamine or a trip to A & E. Fortunately the antihistamine worked, but it does prove sometimes the cure is worse than the illness.

Hi Michael. Thank you for your reply. I am not so certain? I had asked the doctors if it could be something to do with asthma. With my heart rate as it is/was? maybe I should have been born a Hamster ? Best wishes Kevin

Hi Ed.  Thank you for your reply. Indeed, this is my third “ bout “ first in 2000 when we removed house, second whilst on holiday in Canada, and now. Sounds like you have either been a victim or Kev someone that has.Best wishes Kevin

Hi Petermac. I should be so lucky? I am now full of beater blockers and antibiotics. It has been suggested that the Cellulitis caused the infection that affected my heart rate, no more running up and down stairs all day. Best wishes Kevin

Hi Ed.    Re your Cellulitis comments? You haven’t been lumbered with my other medical condition ( that I am taking Beta Blockers) because that really is a PITA, I have managed to get a phone call appointment with the Doctor on Tuesday afternoon, but I am impatient. Best wishes Kevin

Back on antibiotics as it's flared up again :sad:

Let's face it Kevin, as we get older we start falling to bits.

Have you managed to do anything on the layout?


Ed

Hi Ed. Thank you for your reply. I don’t seem to have any energy to get back up the stairs.. I did try, but, this old heart of mine is giving up ? And I don’t want to push it. I am hoping that the Doc will fill me I’m on Tuesday?Best wishes Kevin

Hi All.         Bull in a china shop approach on model Railways,          
When I returned to Model Railways after fifty odd years I didn’t stop to ask advise of the forum. Not even did I go to a local model shop, but I left it to the misleading information online. Even if drew a plan on the back of an envelope it would show me the errors of my way. I settled on a plan? But soon realised my plans wouldn’t work, even though I had purchased a push pull unit , wrong again. Then came the Inglenook idea which which I have stuck with, until the idea of a Branch Line came along, back to square one, But I didn’t think it over? No space for a run round , it looks like I will require another board of at least four foot in length, then there is the “three way point “ I purchased one but couldn’t work out how to fit it and wire it. Then came my Hospital inpatient weeks, say no more.     Now I have to get my finger out and sort of start again? or at least adapt my original plans. Best wishes Kevin

Great to hear from you Kevin, I bet Peckham has missed you as much as we have!
I think it is the curse of the model railway builder, you describe.  There are so many possibilities, so many things we could do that it can stop us do anything.... well, that was me for a couple of years when I too decided to return to the hobby - although "return" is a bit of an exaggeration, I had a Hornby train set as a boy.

And then when we start, we think of all other possibilities.... and as for taking advice, well, it seems simple doesn't it, designing and building a small railway?  For us novices, it's not until we start that we discover all of the pitfalls...

I've only just completed my circuit of track after two years because I made mistakes, changed my mind, made more mistakes: and even now I look at it and think how I could do it differently.  But if I keep thinking like that, it will never get done.  And when it's all finished, I can either go back and replace some of my early modelling efforts or I can rip it all up and build a new one...... or just enjoy the finished model.

One thing I did do before embarking on Faversham was to make some small modules, to practise some skills and learn some basics.  Maybe you could stick with your small shunting layout for now and get it finished.  Then you can step back and decide of you want to build that branchline.....  Wiser people here may ehlp you to design something that can be extended at a later date if you want to.

Happy modelling!

Michael

Hi Ed.    Good News? I have to go through another procedure Thursday 16 January, tomorrow/ today?Hopefully if I get through that without a problem, there is a slot open next week for the team to finish off the job that all the tests were about. Removing a “ Vein “ from my leg (I think it is called a bypass) . Best wishes Kevin

We'll be thinking of tomorrow Kevin, so good luck with your bypass. I trust you have been well briefed on what to expect and that everything goes well.

Very best wishes,

Bill

Good to have you back Kevin. Hope tomorrow goes well. 
I’d stick with what you have and get something working before switching!

Hello Kevin, been there, got the Tee Shirt.
No worries, it's a routine every day procedure, I finished up with a row of staples down my chest, and watching pink elephants walking across the ceiling with the morphine I was on, I wasn't in Hospital long and I'm fine now.

I'll not say good luck because luck really does not come into the equation, its so routine.

All the best,

BrianT.

Hi all.   I have heard of staples before whilst in Hospital, but I prefer using them in garden work not being used on me.I hope it is as easy as I have read. It has got to be done, leaving without a choice and be happy that the NHS is still in existence.      Thanks everyone for their support. Best wishes kevin.
