Some possibilities

When I finish a project, after the initial sigh of relief, ideas start rushing into my head for candidates for the next project. Let me take you through some of them, with pros and cons.

Bangor, extending to at least Menai Bridge and Bethesda Junction. This would be a moderate project, on the same lines as West Cornwall but smaller and simpler.

Pro: track plans and timetables are available, though we have little personal knowledge of the area.

Con: perhaps not complex or busy enough to appeal to customers.

Preston, extending to at least the first junction on each route. This would be big and complex, a long project, on the same lines as Perth but with a bigger station, two sheds and more traffic.

Pro: track plans and timetables are available, and a lot has been published about day to day operations, though we have little personal knowledge of the area. Complex and busy enough to appeal to customers.

Con: perhaps too big to attempt so soon after Perth.

Gwinear Road West Signal Box, as in our West Cornwall 1950 simulation. This would be based on Yarnton Junction, but a little more complex.

Pro: all relevant data is readily available.

Con: Customers have shown little interest in signal box simulations.

There are other possibilities lurking at the back of my mind, but not yet on the short list:

Bangor
Birmingham (LMS)
Bristol
Cardiff
Crewe
Derby
Southampton
Stirling
