Si , Woodrowe fellers..

The story is about as fun as the modelling..more so..?..when i am flat about producing..I am getting better at enjoying the books..the internet,,..speaking of which..back some time ago..years..,..I must admit to..cannot deny...w/o the actual age shewing..

I wanted to know about some mysterious wee trens in wales..virtually nothing available here as far as informations..it wasn't till about 1989 that I was able to get the JIC Boyd series on the rlys of wales.volumnes 1- 5 ..?..and even then I had trouble concentrationg on the written word..liking "pitchers"

The photographs were not so big..and not so clear....the fotos were good quality..but it was that I had no idear of context..where and whot this stuff was..relating to things..probably reading in detail would have helped..

Hard when a brother is driven to produce more and more in the work place with no rise in pay ..work harder..be expected to work harder for the same rate..a bit of philosophy thrown in , complaint..maybe...

A great set of books along this vein is the series of little fictional..{ some historical} by the "Frog" ..Brian Clarke...one is " Slates to Churchwater" I suspect these books are available..probably on line now..they of course only whet the appetite..I wish he would have done more..more / work harder for him..no rise in pay..I suspect...

Of course..we can make our own stories ..our own lokeys and wagons..lay our own tracks..in our own worlds..we have a forum to send in and share..or see the sharing of others..

So then..great stuff...

And there is rumoured to be a 18" gauge , four wheel passenjare carriage under way in Beatty , Nevada ,...parts are gathered..shop is available..weather a bit soft today..but it is starting..and progress will be shared..
