The tidy up closes
It came down to four possible layouts (six if you count the ongoing). Starting at the bottom left: the Teachers box and above are unbuilt kits, the Rhiw BR diesel stock, the ex AOTC GWR stock and buildings done for the GW book. Upper level: transformers and other control stuff and lesser used tools, 7mm NG and 009 bits and bobs and finally top right the old Einsford Mill USA stock which was highly cheap mid 1990s but would be extortionate to replace. Dury's Gap bits in front.
This all means that in theory excepting track,wood and detailing stuff I could probably get a decade of modelling out of this without parting with any cash. Bad for the retailer - good for me. There are essentially three easy-build layouts in there that could either use the Morton Stanley or Svanda fiddle yards and that's excluding the 7mm NG.
