Steaming from the past to the Future

 So, it took a little longer than planned but I did finally had my exhibition back in May.

I had around 15 paintings, many sketches as well as a running Demo of Weardale and Teesdale.

It took 15 years to do, but it was worth it. :)

6 months since it was signed off

How time flies, it has been 6 months since the route got signed off and I breathed a huge sigh of relief.

Since then I have been working on the next 12 to 18 month plan, helping new staff and looking at new tech.

It is also coming up to 10 years since i joined the rail sim project and it has played a huge part of my life.
I still play the game every day and route build on a small scale most evenings.
My latest fun thing to do is make small fictional dioramas out of each route pack to see what I can come up with.
I'm not sure I have another route in me, but I do hope to start my Bishop Auckland oil painting set soon.
I turn 44 in January which leaves me 6 years to fulfill my dreams of putting on a show in the Bishop Auckland town hall before I turn 50.

I may well keep my blog going to keep folks that are interested updated with my art.
