Lockdown project
« on: March 27, 2020, 05:45:27 PM »
Hi guys,

Working on the ASSumption that most of us will be (un)gainfully (un)employed over the next 3 weeks, what is it that you plan/hope to accomplish with regards to your layout (if you have one), or other railroad related project, over the lockdown period ?

I am hoping to get a layer of dirt (not the dust it is presently covered with) down in my yard and to get the yard trackage weathered.   And if someone is prepared to brave the lockdown authorities and come and do the ballasting, you would be more than welcome .........

Steve   :-\

I also have a few things planned, will see what I can manage.
I also need to sand and varnish the garden bench.
Also still busy with two jobs and want to try and finish one of them.

Methinks not such a good idea.  Imagine how many hours are going to be spent sitting on your butt when the time could have been productively applied to futhering layout progress !

You have to do research. Very important. On the couch, in bed or on the patio. Jörgs' garden bench is just perfect for such activity.  :biggrin:
