I had an ex who was interested in model railways. And when we parted he left me his stuff as he was off to foreign climes, so I put it in the loft and forgot about it.
Around 30 years later I was in that loft and noticed the stuff gathering dust in the corner and contemplated doing something with it. It seemed to have some value if I sold it, but then I wondered about actually _playing_ with it in some way – I've found that the older you get the more one misses 'playtime'.
So instead of selling it all I've been on ebay to add some bits – mostly track – and toyed around with designing a new layout on SCARM. Maybe soon I will actually … build it!
