Glad to hear that you are recovering from the Covid Glencairn, and so sorry about the water damage. I hope you can bring the models back to the way they were before the flood, they always look so good in your pictures.
Thoughts are with you.

IanS, (Dave) Journeyman and (Bob) Puddles Thank you for you kind comments.

When we heard the downpour we could hear water 'coming in'. I covered 'Clarence Dock' with sheeting

I think I have managed to save most of the layout at Clarence Dock. I know I wanted a rain effect with puddles on the ground, the 1-1 weathering has helped. :lol:

After a clean up I ran a few diesels and all is well.

Thank you Richard.

Some buildings to build on the layout, but a small price for what could have been.

Hi David - glad to hear your on the road to being fully recovered - the model can always be patched up. I hope the water damage generally was not to severe.
