Hello John and what a pleasure to see you again,
 
Sorry to hear of your hospital stay, which must have been even more of a worry during the pandemic, but you are home now and in planning mode, so throw another log on the fire and as Matt said, enjoy some planning.
 
I too am using some slow throw point motors for the very first time and am just back off to the layout to progress the wiring.
 
Keep warm, stay safe and speak soon.
 
Best
 
Bill

Hi John
Good to hear from you again. I hope the operation went well and wish you a speedy recovery. Whatever you do do, dont rush things now you are home......slow and steady should be your watch words for the next few months

Best wishes

Good advice there. Rush back in to things and you'll set yourself back.

Hi John - good to hear from you again and I too hope everything went well in the hospital and that you're  well on the way to making a full recovery.

Hospitals to me, are like insurance - one tries to avoid both at all costs but, if or when the need arises, they're an absolute godsend.

I too think those who work on the "front line" in them deserve to be put on pedestals - they're never sufficiently appreciated until we face something like Covid.

If there's anything positive about 2020, it may just be that it taught us all who and what were actually important in life and reminded us what we could quite easily do without.  That really was an interesting lesson - in fact, the whole pile of humanitiy ought to be turned upside down - as one might do a compost heap .............................. :hmm

I quite agree Peter. The trouble is with the amount of imbeciles that put us all at risk because they don't believe in covid, or that it's a government conspiracy to control us, won't wear a mask etc.

Hi Guys

Many thanks for your positive and supportive comments, which are always reassuring and very welcome.

And so much better than a letter I received yesterday from my travel insurance company addressed to my executors!

I keep wondering if there is something I have missed in my recovery.......... and I was thinking I had survived the operation.

Glad you are back around. I've been reading and keeping up even if I haven't been adding a message!

Hello to everyome and apologies for the fact that I haven't added anything to this topic for such a long time.  I have had a continuous and never ending set of medical appointments since my operation and that, added to the fact that I have been suffering from a lack of energy, means I have only made one or two cursory visits to layout over the last few months.

I am hoping that might change in the next few weeks and that I will be able to add to the story, though I am suspecting that there might have been some deterioration in some of the trackwork.

It's great to see you posting John. The layout will be what it is so take your time and nurse that health back. We can wait for an update. . . A day. . . Ok mebbe two  :twisted:. No in all honesty take it steady, bite sized chunks rather than full on and end up knocking  yourself back !
Cheers

Matt

Just take your time and let your body dictate how long it takes to recover.

It's been said John - great to see you back but don't rush into things.  Fun though railway modelling is,  your health is so much more important and, unlike your health,  it won't spoil if it waits a little longer ........

Hi John, nice to hear from you. I’ve been catching up and hope you are steadily recovering in strength and enthusiasm. 
I hate to say it, but over the last few years I think that you have made more progress on your layout than I have on mine! The shed make over is a positive step forward and it will keep the layout safe for your occasional visits.

Keep keeping on.

Best wishes

Hi John

Great to hear from you again. I know from my own recent experience how frustrating and tiring a constant round of medical appointments can be. I do agree that the best antidote seems to be plugging away at the layout whenever one can......albeit at a reduced pace. Slow and steady is the way to go.

Looking forward to hearing more about Chelford, Oxsea and Battenham

Best wishes

Well I still haven't managed to get any real time with the layout over the last few months but I have managed to purchase some new items to experiment with when (and if) time becomes available:



I have purchased some items from Modelu to try to liven up the loco and shed areas.  Unfortunately they don't come ready painted  so I have purchased some new paint colours which will hopefully do the job.



I have also purchased a couple of fairly new products, some internal carriage lights to add to the EMU suburban units I have.....



.... and some automatic Kadee coupling units from Precimodels.....



I also purchased one of the latest Bachmann Hall models (Burton Agnes Hall) and had hoped to be able to try out one of the latest TCS sound decoder offerings in it but the decoder won't fit in the loco and I can't gain access to the inside of the tender, so I guess I will have to try Plan B!

Hi John

You have been on a shopping spree! :lol:

I hope you will give us a "how to" and review of the Preci Models uncoupler. I bought one a few years ago but never got round to fitting it and now its languishing in the "maybe when I get round to it" box - one step from the bin - perhaps you will inspire me!

Best wishes

Wow - you have been spending John !!

It all looks interesting stuff and I too look forward to seeing what the couplers will do - never seen or heard of them before so it's even more exciting for me - at the moment, they just look like a frightening number of wires.

I like the look of those ModelU figures but, following my recent experiences of buying stuff from UK, they can wait until someone goes over ................ :twisted:

I know "Burton Agnes Hall" quite well - the real one, not the loco, as it was only about 20 miles from where I used to  live.
