Re: The Charlwood Light Railway (CWLR)

I completely understand on the time thing Rob. This month for me is even less with grandkids minding duties... :lol: :lol: Do my eyes deceive me Rob... 8) Are you using a cereal box for the cab.... :scratch: Ah but the good thing about Grandkids, as the saying goes, is you can give them back! :lol:...

Re: The Charlwood Light Railway (CWLR)

Some slight progress before I have to go to work. Only had about 30 mins to spare so it’s not much....

I’ve decided to go for a stepped running plate so that the cab sits lower.

Re: The Charlwood Light Railway (CWLR)

Thanks Rod! It’s sort of inspired by Tag Gorton’s latest loco, which is a coal fired DJB Emma with tender. There’s pictures and videos of said loco on DJB’s Facebook page. This will be a bit bigger though I reckon. I also have no specific plans, I’m just sort of making it up as I go along! I’ve neve...

Re: Railway Modeller - Brockhampton & Umbridge

Do you work in the paper industry? There is no point having both electronic and paper formats as the environmental impact is greater. Printed information generally becomes obsolete as soon as it's produced whereas electronic data can be updated. You could easily argue with your iPad reference what'...

Re: Railway Modeller - Brockhampton & Umbridge

I’m definitely going to have to pick a copy up! It’s always nice to see a garden railway featured in the ‘mainstream’ modelling mags, especially one as high quality as yours is Peter! It’s also worth noting that the paper industry is one of the most highly regulated and efficient industries on the p...

Re: The Charlwood Light Railway (CWLR)

I remember when my Silver Lady use to look like yours when it was new. If you are running out of gas that quickly it might be up too high or try refilling with gas once you have pressure (remembering to turn the gas off first!) I’m planning on buying a few bits and pieces for it this year :) The ru...

Not to worry though, as No.9 was on hand to go...

Re: The Charlwood Light Railway (CWLR)

Pity Rik's chosen theme for the current Photo Gallery is "On Track", if it was 'Off Track', you'd have a sure-fire winner!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: I could start an entire gallery of ‘off the rails’! Hi Rob, Agree with Phillipy on your photo. Was it taken when we had that heatwave last week. ...

Re: The Charlwood Light Railway (CWLR)

Great seeing photos of this fantastic line again. I just love the way it flows and I look forward every week to more from you Rob. The line is a strange one hey. Do you think it may have been this heat.... :scratch: Network Rail have an excuse now for running their trains late, the heat has started...

Nice Tram there Rob. It does need a respray you're right. Seems the previous owner was a little bit carrels with the grey.... :roll: Have you any idea what colour/colours you are thinking of doing. I am waiting to see how you get on with all the conversions you are planning. Please show how you go ...
