Especially if there was a lot of scrap lead or copper pipe attached to it

If you have an imersion tank you are quite correct that will be the header tank, you can move it to one side if youre handy at plumbing.

Best left well alone, avoid the chance for their Clerk of Works to perform a sharp intake of breath before citing several paragraphs from the tenancy agreement

eagle125 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Work on hold

My house was built in 1902/3 ,mining subsidence claims where sorted before i bought it .

Having built my layout in the loft i`m now putting it on hold

Temperature an `other` issues cause problems ,but in the last week or so i swear my house has moved a bit, 1 bedroom door is awkward and because my layout is in 3 sections and i can`t fit expansion joints !!!! i now have running issues
So i`m trying to plan my next step.

I have had my DC layout in the loft for 20 years. I have had no problems with buckling track work. There was a stage where I did not do any work/running for a while, but I am back working on it now, converting to DCC. It's okay in the winter, as we have gas ducted air central heating, and there is ducting in the loft. So in the winter our loft is not really cold, I normally end up in just a t shirt when working. I also have a HOe layout, which will eventually join up with the HO layout. Up there this morning doing some more rewiring.

I like this one. Interesting in that he disguises the purlin as a cutting.

This one by way of contrast uses low relief buildings and a wall.

This one has a photographic background
