Title
Wales Chain POSTPONED due to my laptop now being out of action :(
Notes
Hello and welcome back, to another mega-chain!


This time we cover an equally important Rail corridor......The Welsh Marches.
We will cover the area from Holyhead - Cardiff Central which encompasses 45 MECHANICAL ABSOLUTE BLOCK SIGNAL BOXES
(In Order they are...Holyhead, Valley, Ty Croes, Gaerwen, Bangor, Penmaenmawr, Llandudno, Deganwy, Llandudno Junc, Abergele & Pensarn, Rhyl, Prestatyn, Talacre, Mostyn, Holwell Junction, Rockliffe Hall (Panel), Gobowen, (Nantwich, Wrenbury, Whitchurch, Prees, Wem, Harlescott, Crewe Bank), Crewe Junction, Severn Bridge Junction, (Abbey Foregate), Sutton Bridge Junction, Dorrington, Marshbrook, Craven Arms, Oninbury, Bromfield, Wooferton, Leominster, Moreton-On-Lugg, Hereford, Tram Inn, Pontrillas, Abergavenny and Little Mill.

In Addition, we also have:
- Llanfair P.G. Which is a Gate Box Overseen By Bangor
- Llanrwst (Nth), A Signal Box Working KT/OTW
- Panttyffon On The Heart Of Wales Line, Working NSKT & TCB With Direction Levers
- Plus Llandudno Junc, a Panel Working AB
- Plus Croes Newydd Another Panel Working AB and TCB To Chester
- Chester, Newport & Cardiff PSB's


As usual, we run the default 2015 TT from start to finish, but with Excursions, Test Trains and more!

So for this chain it is ESSENTIAL you understand the basic's of Absolute Block but if you don't there are 3 power boxes for TCB Working.

Can I have Gaerwen & Bangor?
Thank you!

Yep Course!

Can I take Prestatyn / Abergele ? I probably won't do 4 hours straight so if somebody else wants it... Otherwise I don't have any paid sims in the area (though I might get Shrewsbury one day) so unless Steve wants to divide North East Wales that would be it.

So when is this happening now that it's being postponed?

Whenever I get my laptop back/get a new one, and if the saves are not salvageable then I’m afraid the Wales chain may be over and we’ll start again with London! But I’m not posting a game until I know when I’ll be back to hosting :)

Sorry folks though think TJ will run a few games each Saturday until I return!

You could hold a poll to see if folks would be okay with starting the chain over, too.
