Re: North East Victoria Railway

The DH looks great. It must be a heavy beast. I like the green coach in the background of the workshop photo. Is that a freelance model or something specific? Your mate's Sentinel railcar is a beauty too.

Re: Workshop/shed

It's a nicer workshop than mine, and mine took me much longer than 3m 43s to build too.

Re: The Leawarra Nayook Railway

You have to admire this railway. One of the most atmospheric garden railways you are likely to see.

Re: TVT - The lost Tribe

Good to see this rural Aussie scene, full of character. The bauxite coloured van is an interesting item. Is that rolled up 'blinds' I see there? Not sure what they're really called but it's a nice touch.

Re: Semi-scale BR: Strictly Bulleid*

...I reckon an N or U class mogul would look great... There’s the Schools class, too - which I’ve always thought actually looks (especially in profile) like a full-size toy train, if you know what I mean. Very impressed with your Southern Mogul. Captures the spirit of it nicely. The N is probably m...

Re: Snowdon Mountain Railway

Yes, its a great run. About 3 years back my better half and myself took into our heads to do a flying visit from Kent. Drove to the youth hostel (Snowdon Ranger?). Next day went up the mountain then drove home! We never seem to get much time off! :scratch: We nearly missed out on the trip because th...

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

A great video of a superb railway. Lots of interest there.
I was intrigued at the insect landing on the building at 3:48. Looked like a scale bird !

Re: The Cobtree Line

Yes, its the Lost in Space chariot, remounted on a 16mm powered chassis. It awaits a crew and some working lights fore and aft. Possibly a snow plough as well. Creeping Thyme is great and yes, we have tried it here but without much success. Just shrivels up and dies. Wrong soil maybe,; I know it lik...

Re: The Cobtree Line

I finally got chance to make a little more progress and the track is being laid around the south end of the pond. The Chariot inspection trolley was sent out to test the newly laid track. I think it needs fitting with a snowplough to clear away all the hazelnut shells deposited on the line by squirr...

Re: Two Dogs Railway

Always good to see progress on a new project. Improve your house and build a new railway at the same time. Sounds like a plan!
