Re: The (Windmill Hill) Welsh Highland Railway

I think I did lockdown wrong. Not only did I not learn a language or write a novel, but I barely ran any trains. What was I thinking?! You should be absolutely ashamed of yourself, :lol: Good to see your back on the straight and narrow, nice pics. those trucks do look the business. I reckon the loo...

Re: What to do with a tiny, barren wasteland?

Another great read Aaron, progressing well. It's always good to be able to run the first train on a completed continuous loop. Did you put any reo in the cement crossings?

Re: The Leawarra Nayook Railway

They've been out for years Rik, to the point that a couple have rotted away in the ground and I've turned a spigot on the lower end that was left and added a 1/2" steel tube to give them a bit more life. I also have two full loads of new poles for the flat wagons when the time comes.

There was some sunshine today, boiled some water in the Lumberjack.

Another superb weathering Job Andrew, I notice there's even a small cobweb on the right hand hinge strap, perfect.

Re: Full size railway reference and picture thread

Thanks for this reminder Andrew. I used to like watching the webcams as I'm not likely to see the railway in real life, but gave up after the camera's being repeatedly inoperative.

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

Another great build Peter and a very "jaunty" livery. It certainly was a time of elegance in design. I heard somebody say once, "they didn't have to make them that way, but they did".

Re: The Leawarra Nayook Railway

Have you installed a smoke generator in the chimney? I have both Rik, I've built a grate for wood firing which works OK and makes plenty of smoke. I thought I would try the smoke unit from my paddle tug, substituting the double manifold for a single one. It makes heaps of smoke (smells like a babie...

Re: A different 3D printed diesel

Fabulous job Philip, very nice proportions and crisp lines, the open cab is a nice feature too. That grill looks just like a pressed steel grill right down to the round ends to the holes.

Re: What to do with a tiny, barren wasteland?

Aye, been eyeballing roughly 1mm gaps in each joint. That's every 2-5ft, which I think might be overkill, but what's the harm? My track is all code 250 AMS brass Flextrack in 5ft. lengths and I have 2mm gaps in winter but that closes completely and pushes the odd curve in summer. I'm with Peter, no...
