There is not much more of this virtual modelling I can stand before I need to get physical again! What’s more, there are some parts of 622 that need to integrate with commercial parts.
So tonight I took to the garage, knife and tape in hand, to dig through the pile of boxes that I have dubbed “Mount Flood.” I found only one of the items on my list – some coupler boxes. I’m hoping the boxes that contain the existing parts of the locomotive, and more importantly my scratchbuilding supplies, are somewhere deep inside the mountain in a great vein of train stuff. Hopefully the renovation will recommence soon, and we can get back to regular modelling.
