Introducing a new blog by yours truly.

Soldiering has taken a back seat of late. I've been given the delightful task of looking after two young (pre-school) granddaughters for four days a week. They keep me active and by the time I hand them back I'm too tired to do much. I'm left with one weekday to myself, as MrsJ keeps me occupied at the weekend, so not much gets done.

I have, meanwhile, slowly been planning a model railway for the garden shed. Rather than bore anyone with details here I started a new blog under the title of Joppy's Model Railway Trials and Tribulations. This isn't really intended as a social endeavour but is a kind of diary of my efforts. It is quite boring at the moment but should get better as construction begins.

In the meantime, if you want to check it out feel free. No compulsion.


  1. I look forward to reading this. I am still swithering about starting or not with my railway project...


    1. Beaten to it by an expert. Thank you, I was still trying to work out the grammar.

  3. Hi Joppy - I've left some comments on you Train BLOG - hope you can sort out a 'Followers Gadgit' for the Blog- I'd certainly enjoy following your progress on your OO9 project. Regards. KEV.
