Monsieur Meteo doesn't know what to say for the forecast here but there will certainly be some railway activity wether indoor or outside.

I have started to think about the portable layout for RailExpo in November and with experience gained from the last visit I am building a proper portable engine depot with a sector/turning plate.

Something for the weekend? Portde10

So this will occupy some of my weekend especially if it rains!

...and you?

That’s looking very good Carl. Very Happy Very Happy

I am doing plumbing. Connecting up a 1,000 lt water tank inside the celler to the toilet system via a pressure pump so that we can flush the toilets with either well water or rain water.
What rain????? havent had any for 5 weeks. sunny sunny sunny

I've fitted a metre square concrete slab alongside the line which will be the scene of a travelling fairground and freak show. We've built some swingboats and a chair-o-plane and some of the weekend will be spent adding to them. I'm playing tomorrow night and sunday lunchtime, teaching sunday morning. Swimming the rest of the time as the pool is still at 28 degrees! Like to know more about your system Peter, presuming its similar to Brians?

I have 2 tanks outside Mikey that feed the inside tank.

The inside tank is also supplied from the well if required. The pressure pump does the distribution.
