#Bloganuary today prompts us to write about a favourite childhood toy. I went out to the garage and pulled down the box that stores the remnants of my old Hornby O gauge train set. I think I was about 6 or 7 when it appeared under the Christmas Tree. I had hours of fun laying out the track in various configurations on the bedroom floor, using cushions and empty boxes as hills and tunnels. It started my love affair with trains, and here I am, six decades later still waiting for the space, time and $$$ to build a decent layout! One of those things I’ll get to when proper retirement starts, I suppose. In the meantime, one shelf in my office is dedicated to keeping my appetite whetted.
Toyin’ with my mind
A track looking for somewhere
Locos ready to chuff
A model railway fuses carpentry, mechanics, art and spirit!
