    Please let me know if there are any problems. I should mention for anyone looking for these mdels on the DLS that I have correctly used 0 as "zero" when naming models, not "OH" as commonly pronounced. Earlier gauges/scales were named 2 and 1.

    Thank you very much Ray. As soon as the new furniture is available I'll modify 'Lynborough' to use it. I guess I could see how it looks on 'Rugton' as well since the present 00 table and chairs do tend to tower over the line a bit and make it look smaller.

    You are quite right about the '0' versus 'O' designation of 7mm scale and it should indeed be properly referred to as '0' since at the time of the first model railway trainsets becoming available '0' was regarded as being the smallest practical size. As for Gauge '1' and '2'.......... no don't start me thinking in that direction.

    I hear what you're saying. These days I see all kinds of damaged and rusty old stuff being offered for sale at stupid prices when once upon a time nice items could be found at pocket money prices. When I was living at my Mum's house while doing my social worker training I used to lay track all over the place on the floor. I think my Mum thought her daughter had gone back to her second childhood.

    Back then I was 9/10, it brought over the older cousins and even the dads from their magazines or TV. Everyone was on the floor laying track, winding up engines or sorting out scenery (the creative ones got the cards out and setup their own tunnels/stations/platforms). However, some took longer to get up off the ground than others

    Tell me about it. In many ways I still feel like the woman I was when I was in my twenties, - until I have to get up off the floor then I feel like I'm in my seventies.
