I’m a lifelong model railway enthusiast, currently building an S scale model railway in my train room. I started planning for this layout in mid-2011 and construction began in October of that year:
I co-hosted The Model Railway Show, a podcast about the hobby. That podcast is now on indefinite hiatus, but you can still listen to all the shows by clicking on the badge, below:
I also have three Border Collies:
I’ve been training the eldest to work sheep, which is the job for which Border Collies are bred. He’s getting a bit old to be running a large field and managing livestock, and my second eldest dog never really showed the instinct, so in early 2016 we adopted a puppy from a strong herding background. I hope to take him further. If we ever get good enough, we may compete in herding trials. We’ll see…
How to reach me…
There are several ways.
If you have a question about something specific on the blog, I recommend that you comment on the relevant post. You can do this on any of the blogs I write. I check the blogs at least once per day and I read every comment – promise!
A couple of notes on this. First, your comment may end up being moderated – especially if you’re new to my blog. That’s not me – that’s an automatic thing. Second, your comment will become public under the relevant post. I tend to not edit these – although I will correct spelling or capitalization mistakes and I will often replace raw URLs with a linked piece of text, if appropriate.
For general inquiries, you can use this contact form. This is new to my blog and if it generates too much spam for me, I’ll trash it. But we’ll give it a whirl…
