Seasons Greetings

It has been quite awhile since I have posted to my blog. Unfortunately life has been very busy and I haven't had much time to work on the layout. Late spring and early summer are always busy on the farm with hay making and harvest but this year has been busier than most. A late frost did quite a bit of damage to our crops which added to our work load because we had to cut some of them for hay. With all that happening I just haven't been in the mood to do much work on the railway.
Soon the little church in Buckland will be ready to host Christmas services
We have now finished harvest and I have found some time to work on some projects that have been languishing on my work bench. I have had a Outback Models St Agnes church started for sometime and I decided I would like to get it finished. I have added a vestry to one side to make this very nice kit look a little different. I need to add a few more finishing touches ( like some doors!) and it will be finished and ready to install on the layout.
Hopefully this coming year will see the rest of the track laid on the layout and at least a small area fully sceniced.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a blessed Christmas and hope it is a time of joy spent with family & friends and a prosperous new year. I would like to thank all of you that have taken the time to read my blog and those of you who have made comments. I really appreciate your input and I hope you have found it interesting.
Merry Christmas & happy New Year
