It has long been the assertion of members of the SMRS Armchair Section that they are using said armchairs as an essential means of respite from frenetic modelling activities undertaken in the domestic environment. They cannot therefore be expected to burn the 4mm-to-the-foot scale candle at both ends. Evidence of said activity is generally hard to come by, as it remains locked away in a loft, cellar or back bedroom and rarely sees the light of day.

However a garden railway is by its very nature exposed to the harsh glare of an autumnal Indian summer, and one in particular in a leafy Ormskirk suburb was captured on camera by your roving webmaster. Retirement brings many benefits, the ability to work on 32mm tracklaying uninterrupted for hours on end being just one of them.
