Hello there, thought people might be interested in keeping an eye on the blog a friend and I have set up - it covers all of our projects from toy steam rebuilds, home brewing, general restorations, experiments and anything else we find interesting to do! It's not a very big blog so far, but we have a few pages of interesting write ups and will keep updating as and when things happen!

The blog is still being (relatively) regularly updated. You can read about a model steam workshop, home brewing of mead, the construction of a garden railway, the restoration of a ploughing engine all among other interesting things on just the first page!

Thanks Mike! I don't update it was regularly as I'd like now I'm back at university, but I think there is enough to keep things interesting!
