Re: Remodelling Bulkeley Station

Good work Rik, and the references to local history help to bring the project to life. Be interesting to see which option you go for. I also like the detail on your sketch plans - 'edge of known world'🤣

I think it would be an ideal job for laser-cutting in acrylic...

Re: Semi-scale BR: almost a 2MT

I saw the pristine 4MT 2-6-0 at the North Norfolk Railway not that long ago and now (along with any of the Bulleids, obviously) it’s on my shortlist for the Most Agreeable Looking Locomotive award. Ooh. Is that this one? 20180925_151019-01.jpeg https://youtu.be/Qh2NTv19lZM I was there in September ...

Re: (WH)WHR Buildings

I certainly admire your patience with the windows - well done. I'd be interested in seeing your technique once you get more strip. :thumbright:

Re: Wonderful G Scale garden railway

... Youtube offered me another cab ride of a Swiss-inspired garden railway. This one couldn't be more different, but it's still worth a watch I think. It starts off as a fairly typical garden line tootling about a slightly overgrown back garden, but wait until you get to 2:29... Unless you suffer f...

Re: (WH)WHR Buildings

Following this with interest Andrew. i have a plywood built small signal box that has been outside continuously since 2014, and is now approaching 'end of life'! This would make a good long term replacement I think. How have you constructed the window frames? Are they just butt joints, or are they m...

Re: Hand Powered Cart

Interesting choice for a scratch build Rod. Have you thought about a moving (motorised) version? With a couple of guys hinged at the waist to bend appropriately, I bet you could make a convincing mock up of the real thing. :thumbup:

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

I can’t imagine how you all manage to organise and glue the damn things into neat, equally spaced rows. I can’t even pick ‘em up... And another 'handling' method. I shape a small piece of blu tack into a fine point, and pick up the little critters with that. A light dab of plastic weld or similar a...

Re: Running Free

Quite a novel idea to lighten an afternoon running. I don't have such long or steep gradients, but I'm tempted! :P

Re: MARCH 2020 Quarterly Photo Gallery Entries

Really enjoying the winter photo's :D I'm one of those who loves snow - I'm so jealous of Newfoundland and their snowmageddon last week! Sadly proper winters seem to be few and far between in England lately. Here's my entry for this quarter's competition - "PW work cancelled today - heading home acr...

Re: My favourite TV moment...

I'm not at all impressed with today's so called 'comedians', particularly as they are now constrained by what they are allowed to say so not to be interpreted by delicate 'snowflakes' as being insulting to anyone, anywhere! Attached is my all-time favourite TV moment from the American soap, 'Soap!'...

Re: Workshop/shed

That looks great. Will you leave the weatherboard 'au naturel' or are you going to use a coloured preservative?
