The title of this post is true in many respects. Sadly of late, not alot of time has been spent on modelling due to the many commitments that come with a busy life; work, travel, family and other activities. None the less things have slowed down just a little bit recently and the modelling may begin again.
Construction of the layout has been slow, mainly due to shifting house (another time-sapping activity) and having to re-jig the track plan a little to fit the new location, but these things have been over come and I am again satisfied that I have the basics of a track plan that I am happy with. I will dedicate a future post to the track plan and more layout construction.
Through all this, I have made some new acquisitions, both of these will run "under the wires" on my Victorian Railways themed layout - an E Class electric in VR Blue & Gold as well as a Single Ended Dogbox Pilot in the unmistaken and unmissable Met Colors of Green & Yellow.

Just another photo of this lovely little locomotive of the Victorian Railways.
Both of these lovely & striking models were purchased ready to run from Sam's Workshop.
