While my son has been away at university I've been able to work on a scenic module in his bedroom. As he would probably like his room back at the end of this week, any progress on what will the town module of Strelsau (layout thread will appear!)will require use of the garage but I suppose it is getting quite warm now down here on the Essex Riviera.

So what will be on my workbench (also known as my computer desk)?
I've got quite a lot of German, Swiss and Austrian models that are currently DC but need to be converted to DCC. Fortunately this is really straight-forward with most of the models. I was really pleased that there are no vague instructions eg "remove the body". If the body has to come off the model is accompanied by a diagram and instructions in at least two languages. The body doesn't always have to come off, one Liliput 2 car EMU has a little flap underneath, so open, insert 21 pin decoder, move small jumper, close flap.

One good thing about doing modelling on the computer desk is that after fitting decoders I can test everything immediately thanks to the Sprog II decoder programmer that lives there. It is always nice after fitting a decoder to see the loco moving up and down a few feet of track.

"a few feet of track"

That's a long computer desk.

I do have a widescreen monitor! Actually I'm so easily pleased at seeing a train trundle across the desk track it probably keeps me away from the scenic stuff.
