Re: Widening back to backs

I can't help with the problem any more than others have said. However it has been in my mind since you first posted the underside picture, that sooner or later the drive band will need replacing and you'll have to get the wheelsets out, so finding a way to do that will potentially kill two birds wit...

Re: Coronavirus projects

Folks, may I suggest that everyone starts their own individual thread for these various projects, please? It's going to get very confusing and difficult to follow if everyone piles them in here all mixed up together. There is are some fascinating work going on which it would be a great pity to miss,...

Re: The Afternoon Mixed

Thanks Rik, I'm envious as always! I did enjoy seeing all your various constructions in situ in the background as they would be seen in 'real life' rather than when they are the foucus of an article. The weathered castle mellows into the background beautifully now and the brewery adds scenic depth e...

Re: A stream for the Elderbury & District Light Railway - FINISHED

I also have a stream about 4 metres long, and discovered that during the very windy whether we had water loss was at a peak, even though it was cool, wind drops water loss drops off. I did find a black bird and a wood pigeon bathing in mine, and water everywhere, which again will count for some wat...

Very nice. As a total non-expert in Esso tankers, I can't see anything wrong with it at all!

Having built a raised railway gaps are good for drainage.
Agreed, but I was referring to the front tringle not the rear gap.

Re: Ringbalin Light Railway

Coming on well, it's a great feeling when you get on a roll!

Just a thought, if it were mine, I would be sooo tempted to fill in the triangle between the RH corner at the end of the low level section and the first angled board joint on the brown boards, just to make it 'flow' visually.

Re: Semi-scale BR: signalbox

I see wht you mean about the evenness of the colour on the real stone, so perhaps I was wrong with my suggestion. You've certainly done a really good job of matching the original stone colour, thats something I always struggle with myself.
