Merry Christmas 2021

2021 has been a year of challenges, setbacks and the odd major problem. My family and I have worked hard to get through the year. We feel blessed to have made it to the end of another year.

We hope that Christmas finds you and your family in as good place. That you and your family are well and able to enjoy tomorrow to the fullest.

I look forward to bringing you more content, including the final post of the Metra layout series, covering the playing of the operations game soon. There are a few more similar layout ideas I want to share in the new year too.

In 2022 I’ll be completing the Evans Hollow industrial switching layout. I look forward to sharing the rest of the build with you.

I’m going to take a couple more days off before I begin the next post. The road out of COVID-19 has been harder on me and my family than we planned. I hope you’ll bear with me as I continue my recovery.

It’s our hope that you enjoy the holidays. I’ll see you in the new year. Thank you for being a part of the blog and for coming back time and again.

My family and I wish you and yours a safe, joyous and a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. All the best and we’ll meet again in early 2022.

Andrew and family.

Delays

I’d promised the final part in the series “Operations on a Maintenance Centre Layout”, how to put the ops system in play, by the end of November. And then I got COVID-19. 


Work in progress

Despite being double vaccinated, I still managed to catch this damned virus. And it has not been fun. So far, I’ve spent a week in home isolation, not really able to talk, coughing most of the time. After a week of that, I hurt everywhere. Every muscle involved in coughing is telling me to stop. Today, for the first time, I’m finally able to talk, quietly, and not cough. So there is some improvement. But I’m a ways from being out of this.

The final post, “Operations on a Maintenance Centre Layout (Part 7 – Op till you Drop)” will probably not reach your notice until Christmas at this stage. I apologise, however, the tank is empty and I’m just trying to get through the day.

Here’s hoping that you and your families are all well. So far, no one else at my home has caught the virus. For which I am very grateful. I hope that remains true for you as well.

All the best and I hope you’ll look forward to “Operations on a Maintenance Centre Layout (Part 7 – Op till you Drop)” in a couple of weeks.
