A very big happy New Year 2019 to every one in from dawn under, sorry I didn't get back , have being very sick since new years eve, Went into shock at my doctors clinic high fever, up to the Ipswich hospital where in a 4 bed ward , now idea when I be coming home , got a blood infection .I get more info on it , can be very dangerous, one those bugs, that like to attack to organs, one was the heart the doc's are worried about. Echo couldn't show a lot they could see, Monday I be going down to theater to have a tube with a camera to look at the heart and main valve to make sure it is not on it .

Not a come at a good time, yet another set back, won't be able to get stuck back into Camdale, since I was starting to make some big progress and on the bridge as well, hope there be good news Monday and when I be home .

Sorry to hear you've been incapacitated since New Years Eve Tony. You certainly pick your times - don't you realise inebriation is supposed to be the condition on that night?

I'm not sure whether you're still confined to a ward or have manged to make it back home but I do hope all is well and I wish you a speedy recovery.

Hi Mick,  didn't have much choice, I went into shock and had to be rushed to hospital from visiting my doc new years eve, still in hospital , waiting on a procedure, which has yet again canceled to tomorrow now.

They are trying to keep on the antibiotics thought the drip as long as they can, very frustrating, now wait till tomorrow comes.

Yeah and  thought I was finely getting some progress on Camdale and cop this set back,still won't be able to do much when I finely go home, Camdale will have to wait a while .

Catch up on some of my projects and finish them off, ship is the biggest project night time slot, can't wait to get back to it, starting to lay the keel of the next section.

I am finely home from hospital on Friday, still under the hospital till tomorrow, can't do to much at the moment too hot outside, going to be losing some plants soon  in the garden if we don't get rain.

I have decided to pull out an old project I started a few years back and didn't finish, have decided to finish it, the loco is a DD35/B loco , have started in cutting the center of the loco and replace the solid bit with a hollow tube. Was thinking of replacing the ends, will leave at this stage, cut the plastic packing of to top of the ends ,any ideas of pain striping how I go about that, only have the ends to strip off.

The loco is duel powered, looking at replacing the old motors for new ones

Have finished the new center piece of the shell roof , turned out well,  if I need to run wires through I can now, tossing If I replace the two ends or have a go at stripping the old paint off, a few layers to tackle, don't want to sand because of  where the lights go 

In the second pic there is a grove line lining up with the walk way I will do the same, yes I will paint the loco in Union Pacific colours to match the DD40/A loco.

Get back to the layout next weekend depending on the heat, be light duties finishing the spiral corner module , being a stinker of a summer, my plants are dying lack of rain and me not being here for two weeks , they get a hose this afternoon
