Allotments

Ok, so I finally got round to adding them to my own route, after all it is where they were made for!
Anyway, bottom of Cradock St looking back down towards Cockton hill school.
My Dad owned a large allotment here and One boxing day back in 87 maybe I remember making a shed with my dad, it was cold but we had a nice big fire to keep us warm.
Also use to walk Ben and Sam along down this old railway for many years.

Merry Christmas Everyone

To all those that follow my blog, I wish you all a Merry Christmas.
While not a religious man in any shape way or form, I do think it is a great time for friends and family.

I am not back to work till the 6th of Jan, so am enjoying being with the kids and wife at home, however 3 days in and we have all gone feral! :)

Hope to make the trip north (depending on weather) and hope to find time to build my route some more.

Here is the section of track looking towards the Station behind Eastlea Ave. Westllea Ave had not yet been built, it followed a few years later I do believe.
As you can see I have no winter version yet. I will be looking to improve on the winter views but  no time to do so just yet. So enjoy the summer view!

End of term feeling?

Still a week of work before I shut down for the holidays but having got a few big chunks of work out the way I feel my brain turning to mush!

I look forward to turning my attention back to my route soon, I was making some real progress instead of the virtual kind.

I hope all who follow this blog forgive my lapses and are still enjoying their own projects and the sim.

I still follow many projects across the tinternet, I am always amazed at how dedicated and talented many of you are.

Looking forward to enjoying the last weeks of 2013 and positive about 2014, I hope it is as good as it promises to be!
