I was trying to write a smaller version of broadly what I think i am
doing, perhaps I am not implementing it correctly. I have one model
which I have coded as a class, there were a few parts which could be
used separately (sub-models). So I decided to make them separate
classes in separate files which I *thought* I could just join up into
one package at run time. This way I could also use these modules

So in the dummy example

the other file is imported

from other_model import OtherSubModel

amd om = OtherSubModel was me making an instance of it? And then when
I called the *run* part of this sub-model I was passing it the
parameter file. I am sensing I have this wrong?
