Re: Railway Modeller - Brockhampton & Umbridge

Wonderful write-up and the pictures are superb, I assume the models were static so he could get that long focal length & huge depth of field making the most of the realism of your models! As I was sat in the cafe reading it over breakfast, I had to show it to the cafe owner - he was amazed at how re...

I love how you finished that Lineside Hut Oakley Quarry wagon. Well, I love all of them, but especially that one!

Re: Time to build a railway...but where?

The weather has been wonderful for a number of days now and I took the opportunity to set out all of my structures and accessories which have been in the shed over winter. A few recent additions have been made and it is such a great feeling to see them all out again after such a long time. Amazing ...

I've never been there but it looks wonderful.
