0Raccolta di disegni modellismo ferroviario

In the last few months I’ve made a col­lec­tion of mod­el rail­way designs as pos­sib­il­it­ies for a new lay­out. Whilst I wont end up build­ing most of them I thought I’d share them here in the hope they might inspire oth­er people.

I grow toma­tos, cucum­bers, chil­lis, lem­ons and olives in a south facing con­ser­vat­ory.  Nel corso degli ultimi 5 years I’ve suffered with a range of ver­min attack­ing my plants, it seems to be a dif­fer­ent type of pest each year after I’ve conquered the pre­vi­ous pest.  Below I cov­er a few suc­cess­ful ways I’ve found to con­trol a range of pests.

Ci sono un sacco di “must see” liste per l'Europa, but they all seem to fol­low one or anoth­er stand­ard for­mula: either selling hol­i­day links, or a blog­ger pick­ing out their favour­ites in their own coun­try.  Many of the longer lists tar­get US read­ers and include lots of loc­a­tions in the UK, which those of us in the UK can vis­it at a week­end without the time or expense of a more sig­ni­fic­ant break.  Below I will try to bring togeth­er a healthy list of the places I’ve loved and still want to see in Europe, exclud­ing the Brit­ish Isles.

This post is inten­ded as a com­pre­hens­ive start­ing point for plan­ning any trip around Europe.

I have recently returned to mod­el rail­way­ing after a hiatus of over a dec­ade. Since I last mod­elled, things have changed con­sid­er­ably, with the wide avail­ab­il­ity of mod­el­ling soft­ware which allows lay­outs to be care­fully designed in advance — ensur­ing the design will fit in the space, and that the required track is avail­able.
