So nice to be back to normal for just a couple of days, while the plaster dries :idea:

I need to clear my layout as it gets used for putting things on. I have a little work planned on it. Actually, I can put the layout up in the barn to paint it. Saves the risk of paint fumes and getting paint on the carpet or clothes.
Looks like you have some projects lined up.

You must have good eyes to work on N gauge. I thought I was struggling to focus. Recently I believe I have found the cause (Via another more concerning issue caused by an allergy) and my eyes are starting to focus sharply again.
You have quite a production going. Do you get time to breathe? :D

For anyone who has a BL, its worth removing the smoke generator while you have it stripped down and cleaning it out, check fans are ok reseal and refit. just a tip to keep it clean.
