Good day, I first joined up on the Gnatterbox in 2005 and was quiet a prolific builder for the next 5 or so years. My problem was that I found I was getting in a rut and needed a new outlet and have gone on and built a couple of 7.25 inch trains. Also bought a retro classic car. The thing is my Gn15...

Summers are always a slow time for railroad modeling.


Had to chuckle at this. Summer is my modelling time, good to get inside out of the heat :D
