Train Things Happen
During property inspections you see and experience many strange things, but this was a first for me. I was asked to inspect a 5 year old house in Beckton, East London. From the outside it looked like any other property in the road. What could possibly be wrong with it? The inspection was going well until I looked in the roof space to find that the occupier had installed a massive diorama train set. That’s not unusual you might think...but to get that train set to fit, he had cut nearly every truss within the roof space which left the roof with little or no support. How the roof didn’t collapse I have no idea.
