Bob,

I still like what I see, street scenes are not always done very well-and I don't think you have to "try harder" there!

You have a long memory. Blackburn was prior to 1974, when I moved from Preston, and the layout "Owlcombe" (reprised MTI-60) and I appreciate your kind and complimentary remarks. The track was. I think. Firmway a predecessor of SMP and that I picked up secondhand and prior to it having a flexible(?) base. Hence the design; all the pieces were straight apart from one that was curved.

It made a very nice easily transportable layout that despite its small size, 8'x1', was fun enough to operate for the length of an exhibition, in fact it won an award judged as I remeber by Bob Essery. at the 1973 MMRS Christmas show.

Regards

John Flann

Hello, I am checking to see if you ever completed the Jaxcilli 3 layout. Do you have any more progress pictures? I am thinking of building one similar.
