But of course you do. The only snag is that you will have to collect them in person at the special YMR launch which will be between 14:48 and 14:50 on Rockall the day before the official publication date.

See you there :cheers

I now have the sort of space that I have dreamed about for building a railway in. A room 30' x 15', plus separate toilet and an office/store running to another 20' x 9' or thereabouts.

The only trouble is, it's for building other people's railways...

May I present, my new workshop!





It is in this block of buildings at a business park near my home



:Happy:Happy:Happy:Happy:Happy

I move in at the end of August.

Potential clients and timewasters welcome by appointment. :mrgreen:

Excellent, Ian.  :thumbs  Nice big access door and plenty of light.  The carpet looks a bit suspect, though.  :lol:

The carpet will be replaced by a nice easy to clean painted floor in the workshop area.

You'll notice the en-suite tea-making facility. :lol:

Currently I am finishing off the first commission (in the living room - SWMBO consented as it was bringing in funds) with numbers two and three to christen the new premises.
It's a funny old world when people will pay someone to do their hobby for them  :hmm

Not to the same extent Max as Ian & Dave Bentley are doing , only with decoders that I am aware of.

 

Good luck Ian & I hope it brings enough in to keep the wolves from the door.

I'll have one of each  - the workshop and the dog !!!

Great workshop Ian - an ex-poultry house ???  Looks like a farm diversification operation ? :roll:

The dog  ?  Great. :thumbs  A golden retriever ?  We lost ours this spring and are still trying to replace her but time slots and supply problems with the "manufacturers" are delaying things.  Maybe this autumn we might have more luck.

I really hope business takes off for you in a big way.  I'm sure you've looked into it but is there a market for building "shop display layouts" for retailers or layouts for shows etc. ?  I remember Hamley's used to have a large LGB layout running around their "railway" floor.  Somebody had to build it.

Good luck in the new premises Ian. I will try to take up your offer for a 'time waster' visit!

All the very best

Yes, it is an ex-farmyard, yes, it is a former chicken shed and yes it is a Golden. Wonderful dogs.

One of my confirmed clients is a university who want a city scene to demonstrate and test high-tech surveillance systems. You couldn't make it up...:shock:

That look s a really great place to build railways in Ian. I think i would invest in an alarm system if it does not have one.

Huzzah!


Congratulations and I hope the work rolls in [that woofer looks like a real financial liability, Bonio-wise, just be glad it's not a St Bernard....or two!]
