That's the one, many thanks for your help. I can't think why my searches couldn't find it, but now I can log back in and indulge myself catching up with new chats.

Re: Searching for French forum

No, not that one either. I should have written it down before getting the laptop repaired. It carried a fair amount of narrow gauge in it.

I've tried looking for Howard Martin's Avalon Line website using the reference given ( http://www.theavalonline.com ) but get directed to some sort of food oriented site. My query is - have I got the wrong address or is the site not up and running? I will just have to go the old fashioned route and ...

Sleeper Depot Film

One of my old school mates has used facebook to put up a short British Pathe film of the old GNR/LNER sleeper depot at Hall Hills in Boston, Lincolnshire. It is very interesting to see the mixed standard and narrow gauge trackwork (some of it very complex), as well as the processes of production and...

Re: Wait a minute, when did I become ...

Exactly. My wife tells me it's our 40th wedding anniversary this year, so why do I still feel (and, so she says, act) like a nineteen year old. Was it Einstein who said that time is relative?

Grumstick and Dipplewick

Missed the Spalding exhibition last Saturday, when I was hoping to see the Grumstick and Dipplewick. Does anyone have an idea when this layout might be on view again? preferably in easy reach of East Anglia.

OK. I've dug the box out from the pile of (useful one day) tat that covered it, and started thinking it back to life. Before I get stuck in, though, I need a (scale) six foot wrought iron garden gate. I may have to fabricate one, but does anyone know of a source for that type of thing?.

Unfortunately the box has sat on a shelf in the shed, slowly accumulating detritus, for a while more. A 'proper' layout and a couple of model boats have had priority. I may get round to more work on it during the winter months when I can bring bits indoors to work on.

alternative to an ironing board is an old knitting machine table. I have one sitting in the shed that is 48inches x 15inches, though they seem to be more 12inch width ones around than that. I just can't decide what to do with it at the moment. Quite a few on e-bay.

I like that station shelter. Where did you come across the drawings. I have an extensive collection of volumes of "Woodworker" magazine, from the early 1930s to 50s, and some of them contain designs for garden sheds and shelters such as this. I missed out the underseat storage cupboards f...
