Red letter day

Yes indeed, the class 37 is all but done!
Screen shots to follow on the RS.com website.

Now that it is out my way I intend to take a rest from modelling locos in my personal time.
The 101 and 03 will be built in work time over the coming year.

Not only am I going to take a rest from locos, but the forums too.
While I have enjoyed the banter with a few (and made some really good friends) I think now is a good time to back off a little and leave them to the users to have a good old moan, after all there is nothing wrong in that!

A new beginning is just around the corner and I just don't think I want to go over old ground with the usual suspects, no good will ever come of it.
I'll still read them of course but I'll refrain from replying so please don't take it personally if I do not respond.

To those that have helped and encouraged, thank you.
You have made the last 2 years worth while.

So onward and upwards...
Hopefully with this news my blog will become a whole lot more interesting and be updated on a much more regular basis.

Hi Derek, I for one have enjoyed the banter with you on UKTS forum and have very much appreciated your input.

I'm sure the freetime you do get, especially after RW's release, will be better spent on family, friends and of course Wear Valley.

Very best wishes,

Paul. (Blackpatch) :)

Hi Derek
Good to hear about the completion of the 37.
I think it's a wise move to step away from the forums. A lot of bile and personal hate spat out at all and sundry, so for the sake of your sanity I don't blame you.
Good luck with the upcoming release of RW.. many of us are looking forward to it.

Sorry you're not going to contribute so much to UKTS, although I can't say I can blame you.

Just remember that many people, like myself, have always valued you input and found your comments interesting and entertaining.

Here's hoping you'll change your mind one day. And don't forget Henry...

Best regards,
