    Default An important announcement from komata

    Some of the memberhip may have noted my absence from the site over the past few weeks.

    Don't be concerned; I' m still an 'N' scaler (and always will be) although I will admit that I am currently experimenting with 1:43, 'For a bit of a change'.

    However, that is not the reason for this IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!

    Rather, it is to inform you, my nSn friends and coleagues that, as I write this, I am in our local district hospital suffering the consequences if a quadrupple (that is 4) coronary bypasses.

    Arriving at this point is a very long and odd-ball story, with which I will not bore you!

    I am not 'sick' (just a bit sore) and thaks to the brilliant effirts of the hospital staff, my totally amazing family and our numerous incrediably-supportive friends, I have come through this experience with flying colours.

    So be not concerned my fellow nSn-ers; I WILL RETURN!!

    Just not immediately.

    Thank you.

    AN UPDATE

    I have survived!
    I am now home, have a zipper-like scar down my chest (sorry, no pics ) and are both very tired and very sore.

    In 1:148 scale, the result of all this is a monorail with a scale rail width of six inches and a total track length of 60 ft.

    It has been a great 'adventure' and as already noted, thanks to my wonderful family, incredible surgeons, and amazing friends, I have come through it successfully!,
    BUT, now the real work starts! I am having to learn to climb stairs, to sleep, to monitor myself, consume seemingly vast-quantities of pharmacuticals, learn how to lift things (and how heavy and how high). Even how to work on my model trains!! (Awwwwwww!).


    This is all new to me ('unknown territory', if you will), and those who know such things tell me that there will be up days and down days, perhaps even 'N -scale' days and, no doubt 'long silences'. Despite such things I hope you will all bear with me if I suddenly 'vanish from sight'.

    'Model Trains still rule' (and N-scale ones' especially), it's just that other events and things have got in the way...

    Thank you.
