What a typical British summer this is. Yesterday Jake and I were playing at the Clanfield RC Race Truck with our 1/8th Truggies, and generally breaking them... (A new centre diff for Jake's Sabertooth and a rapid removal of a shock absorber and then my exhaust on my Habao Cage) but it was at least 22 Deg C and warm, by comparison a visit to Norman and Mary Tyler's to run on their extensive 32mm gauge track was - to say the least - damp. Still, a good time was had by all, Jake enjoyed being driver and signalman respectively and a new video clip of my Caradoc (as yet un-named, ideas anyone) hauling various goods stock around Normans railway, courtesy of the GoPro Hero 4. Proof of just how damp can be seen by noticing when I was reviewing the footage that I had a large raindrop on the lens, but by then I'd recorded too much to re-do it!
Tomorrow hopefully brings dryer weather as Chris and Lin Harrop are due to arrive for a steam up at my own Chibanxi Railway, and then the caravan looms for a week away in sunny (hah!) Shropshire. Watch out for the next blog which will no doubt concern the arrival of two cornsnakes, Willow and Tango.
Also due to make an appearance soon is Jake's first video posting of his tutorial on how to prepare for your first snake, which will be here as soon as I've pasted the clips together, you can also find it on You Tube.
Being a new website (one week old and counting) come back soon to see how it grows, I'll try and find my old Chidham Light Railway articles as well and repost them here, as some of them were actually quite helpful! (so I've been told anyhow)
