Re: The Leawarra Nayook Railway

I've just spent two and a half days doing nothing but shunting trucks and Pass. stock around Leawarra yard. Two engines in steam, amazing how long gas and water last cut right back. Engines also look good just sitting in the sun with a wisp of steam at the safety. Only time an engine left the yard w...

Re: The Railway in the Valley of the Mill

Great work, I do envy the fact that you will have great background for photos on that bank. Don't envy that ground work though, still it appears as though formations will stay put. Looking forward to more.

Re: The (Windmill Hill) Welsh Highland Railway

Beautifully weathered Hudson bogie opens with a heavy load, coaches with full length steps, and a nicely shaded Penlan halt, what more could you want!
Great show Andrew.

Re: The Leawarra Nayook Railway

Thanks Fella's, much appreciated. Started some overdue maintenance today, some may have noticed that the wood stack outside the Crib room, and the goods yard ground levels at Nayook have taken on a bit of a lean. Problem, the stakes and sleepers forming the wall have past their use by date (been the...

A few shots from today's run with the Hunslet. Full sun but a cool breeze showed up the steam for once.

blue engineering bricks.

Well I learn something new everyday, thanks Rik for the explanation and the links. I didn't want you to think I was criticizing your brick colour. We have clinker bricks down here but they aren't completely blue like those engineering bricks.

Re: Bone Works

Very handsome building Rik, going to stick my neck out! the brick colour, is that some sort of flint brick, or is the local clay that colour. Just interested!

That's one hell of a modelling project, very well carried out. Surprised at the white linen suits, suppose it's no different to marine engineers wearing white boiler suits. I always find researching period clothing for our modelling time frame very interesting, have never taken it to the extreme num...
