Re: MARCH 2020 Quarterly Photo Gallery Entries

Andy( and others) I have a similar issue and I've asked Tom about it. It's odd because he sent me a screenshot which shows the thread orientated in reverse to the way mine comes up. i.e his has the current entry thread at the top of the list not the bottom. He suggested using the 'orientation' symbo...

Re: MARCH 2020 Quarterly Photo Gallery Entries

I for one have not done so yet and I am sorry I haven't, but the standard of the photos are so very high and I feel as other members I am thinking, are a bit intimidated, You may be right Rod, but we did discuss this very point b...

Re: Ringbalin Light Railway

Hi and welcome. I see you've been a member for quite a few years, but now that your railway is progressing, please keep us updated. A blog together with interaction on here are quite compatible, just take a look at Rik's 'Peckforton' input.

Re: GRR - Light Railway Extension

Although I can see why you might want to do it, sidings at the back, i.e. furthest from the operating space, can make coupling/uncoupling wagons very awkward.

It's going to be tough to choose a favourite this time!

Andrew
To be fair, it always is! Just shows the excellence of the railways, photography and imagination of the membeship.

It would be nice if more members participated though.

Re: Battery charging advice please

By coincidence this morning I have been looking for some info on power tool battery packs and came across this video for rejuvenating dead drill batteries https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CtngXAZPNqY

I did sucessfully use a similar technique on a loco battery some time ago.

Re: The Charlwood Light Railway (CWLR)

I still can't see them Rob unfortunately..... :( How Strange! I’m not really sure what to suggest. Imgur seems to be having some problems at the moment. I’ll attach the links to the imgur gallery directly instead; I'm not sure what is going on either but I think it must be something to do with what...

Re: The (Windmill Hill) Welsh Highland Railway

Nice pictures Andrew.
BTW if your train crews have eyesight so poor that they need trackside notices that big, you really should send them to the opticians! :lol: :lol:

Happy New Year to you too, Rob.

I love the two B&W photos, especially the second one. :D Not quite so sure about the purple ones though. :shock:

Re: The Leawarra Nayook Railway

Lovely pictures Grant, thanks. The trackplan is useful as well. Like Rik, I've also been wary about weathering. My attempts in years gone by have never really satisfied me. I think its probably due to me being too impatient and wanting instant results, rather than slowly building up subtle effects. ...

MARCH 2020 Quarterly Photo Gallery Entries

Kjell has proposed that the theme for March 2020 will be: «Winter on the Garden Railway» As he says,"There is a few weeks left of the winter. Hopefully there be some white days before end of March 2020. And if not - you may have some pictures taken in previous winters." So please lets post your entr...
