Congratulations on winning the prize ... and on abandoning Nick. Incidentally, I recently received reports that Nick was made to stand in the corner at the airport. -- Russ

  Going to OntraxS for 1,5 days.
  I just need to escape the disastrous situation at home to regain a bit of myself.
  Also the first time interested in modeling again in 2,5 months.
  I hope the feeling and love for it will return.

 Jacq ,

     I hope you are able to get some pleasure from going to OnTrax in the very difficult situation you are in . I am sure when you are ready your interest will return , but for now you have more important things to think about .
     Looking forward to joining you for the BIG one in Dortmund . I guess I had better start earning some money to pay for all the goodies I might find there .

It may help to get away for a couple of days and divert your attention. -- Russ

Thanks for posting the link , Jacq . It looks as if it was a really good show . I am glad to see that you managed to get some pleasure from the time you were there .

   However , I am a bit concerned that Alan is becoming  an " operating whore" ( pardon my French ) and is not fussy where he goes and plays trains and will go anywhere where he can twiddle some knobs ! Are we really sure we want him playing trains on your layout as he is getting a bit of a reputation . If you know what I mean !

Thanks for the link Jacq.  Certainly looked like another well organised and supported event, and enjoyed by many.  The photo series was a great coverage of the show.

Cheers,
Dan

I very much enjoyed the photo coverage and captions. The layout looks excellent and I am glad it won an award. It must have taken a lot of work to set up and break down the layout and also to deal with the crowds. The museum seems elegant and a good place for such an event. Congratulations. -- Russ

Jacq's quite happy with the arrangement. He collects the pimping fees. I thought he did the same for you. 

Looking forward to the big show in Dortmund !

Here is something a little off topic, but very closely related to Jacq's work: Over on one of the German forums there is a guy building some amazing N-scale stuff. Recently he has built the gravel yard from Jacq's Dreimühlentalbahn entirely from brass.

In N scale no less? That's absolutely depressing! Good photos, too. -- Russ

I'd say that is the nicest N scale stuff I have seen. I would not have guessed the scale. Nice to see the sun works as a light source even at 160 times too big.
