No steam though,it was just to hot.
Be forewarned, I`ll post later in the year about a breakfast meet(bacon,eggs,mushrooms,fresh fried tomatoes,fried bread,beans,fried potatos and sausages.plus toast) at our place,possibly in February next year, when we should still be in all day long minus temperatures.The outer loop of track will have been laid by then.Bring your women along,if they get bored theres the woodburners to keep going and plenty of logs to chop.

I'll keep the whole of February free although it's best (for us working dads) if you could do it during the 'vacances d'hiver' - winter school holidays (for zone C) Samedi 17 février 2007 Lundi 5 mars 2007.

Thanks.

Hi Van

Suggest you start a seperate thread if this event is firming up, others might miss it buried here!

BTW can you reserve my place also. Caro won't be coming if the "wimmin" are chopping logs tongue

First the bad news,the meet we were hoping to hold in February/early March will have to be put back.So running steamers on a cold frosty morning is out for at least this year.Track laying has been delayed for a number of reasons,including me working for longer than I had planned(just got home after 5 weeks and a day on the road)and we have discovered that we need to rebuild a couple of internal chimmey/flues in the house.I like to think I am in command of everything I own,but building a railway while Sue lives in a cold house is a no no.I did suggest she buys some extra woolies but the reply was to say the least a bit blunt and to the point. Rolling Eyes So we will have to arrange something for later in the year.

Just read my above post,and it suddenly dawned upon me that the trouble with women is that they have no sense of purpose or any priorities in life

That's a shame Van I was just starting to prep my Edrig and my taste buds, ready for the visit

What are you a man or a mouse? In that situation you could be either a divorced man or a happy mouse - eek eek Wink We understand, I guess that lorry load of blocks is going in the chimney rather than under the track?

In that case and you a need a winter "steamy" session, head on over here!

Welcome back van, I was beginning to wonder where you'd got to. Good luck with the repairs and no worries about open day.
