Re: Summertime, and your printer's seem idle?

Those black propellers look very good. How did you get them to print so cleanly? I tried using supports but mine turned out like your grey ones Yes, I agree. I did look at the possibilty of volunteering when Phil first asked, but decided that the propellors would prove too difficult and kept my fin...

Re: GVT in miniature

Looking good Rik.
Looking forward to seeing the alyout in due course.
I've looked at drawing up an SM32 version of the loco, several times, but never quite got around to it. So it will be interesting to see your running one day.

Sorry Peter, we were there on holiday a month ago, so sadly won't make it again until next April/May. ( had a great day though)

I imagine this to be early 50s Dorset (though sometimes it’s a 2022 heritage line).
No reason why you can't have a flexible calendar to go wth the traditional flexible ruler! :lol: :lol:

Re: The Railway in the Valley of the Mill

That is an absolutely superb picture, well done to both of you.
It actually looks like a real narrow gauge train in a real narrow gauge station.

Re: 5" gauge Tiger

Success! Took some time but was worth it. Of course the engine is rarely run backwards but when shunting or moving to and from the steaming bays, reverse is needed. (And, even if you hardly use something, it just has to work.) Absolutely right. It would have been criminal to build a beautiful model...

Re: Semi-scale BR: The Modernisation Plan

To my eye, either 2 or 4 car units look best. The 2 car looks like a self contained 'DMU' and the 4-car looks like a train, whilst the 3 car looks as though there is something missing. However, they all look good. :D

Re: Peckforton Light Railway - Video Library

Very cleverly put together. The old and new videos were woven together so seamlessly. I've watched it a couple of times but not really thought about the ages of the shots until I read this comment from Greg, and then something dawned on me! I had noticed that the viaduct looks a bit bare when it fi...

I think you must be referring to one of the lonicera plants.
I don't think it's Lonicera, I've got miles of that myself.
