That is it I'm afraid. Can I thank again Chris Nevard for taking the photos and Model Rail for letting me share them.

Great photos. I love all the detail your layout has but surely the wheel should not have wheels nuts when off the tractor :wink:

The axle probably broke and the wheel and hub fell off. 8)

DCR fan,

You are right of course there should just be holes were the studs came through.
The layout has been exhibited over sixty times and had thousands of hits on this site, but you are the only one to notice this.
Sadly there is no prize for pointing out my mistake.

Regards Peter M

So my Mum was right, I am 'special' - the only hole counter in the world. Not one of the boring majority rivet/bolt/stud counters :lol: :lol: :lol: :roll:

Maybe the Stub Axle fell out or sheared off and the wheel was 'rested' there for repair later?

This will be my last post on this thread.

After a great deal of thought I have decided to give up my internet connection.
I live in a tiny village and the use of aluminum wire in telephone system causes all sorts of problems. Of late as the cost has gone up the service I receive has got worse, being very slow and often unusable.
As my only income now is my pension I think the money saved could be put to better use elsewhere.
I have enjoyed posting pictures and accounts of my layouts and will keep the PC for keeping and downloading my photographs.
Thank you all for the interest you have shown in my efforts over the years.

So sorry that you've had to come to this decision Peter. I will miss your updates from the farm. I hope you will still be able to stay in touch with the NG events through various societies etc that I hope you will be able to keep up with.

I had to draw my own horns in a couple of years or so ago for the same reasons - (income - absence of!) and give up membership of several societies and associations that I very much valued and also drastically cut down on magazine input but I have steadfastly held on to the internet connection, I wish there were some way that you would be able to as well as it really can be a bit of a lifeline.

Best wishes

Mick

Peter, I too am sorry you have to take this course. I have always enjoyed your work and will miss it.

Edited to add...

Your work has been an inspiration to me and was probably the most important to my decision to model in Gn15.

And...

Maybe you could just give us an update once in a while from a library or other public access point.

Peter,

Hope this catches you before you pull the pin. I will greatly miss the updates on your unique and interesting layout. I hope you can keep up with us occasionally using public free wifi sites.

Today I was sitting in an airport with group of work colleagues and we were joking about the need to revise Mazlows Hierarchy of Needs. We agreed the modern generation and probably many of the not so modern generation would believe internet access would be one of life's must have needs :shock:

Thanks for all the inspiration and banter over the years. If your ever in New Zealand ...... :D
