Amazing what you can do in a lunch break while working from home ;)
Plus the half hour each way I'd have spent walking there and back of course...

Well, you did say you were looking for new angles!

I really like some of those low level shots, particularly the one of the timber wagon and green carriage...

Cheers,

Andrew.

Re: RWLR - Robin Wood Light Railway

That last picture's very poignant Tom!

Glad the cats have found somewhere else to sit, even if it's not quite as pleasant for them as your permanent way...

Re: (WH)WHR Buildings

Evening all, I finished the paint job on the tunnel mouth this afternoon, so it's now back out in the garden awaiting a little landscaping and planting to soften things a little: Tunnel painted.jpg On the whole I'm pleased with how it's turned out. Ideally I'd have had a bit more space to work with,...

Re: The start of my garden railway

I once had a very poetic looking guard made from various bits of leftover Star Wars figures - I think he had a kind of waistcoat and great voluminous shirtsleeves which would have been most impractical when coupling up etc. He took a dive from his van during a derailment on a raised section of line ...

Hey, Gerald! I'm not Rob, I'm Andrew!

Glad you like it though, thanks! I'm hoping to crack on with painting today...

Re: The Afternoon Mixed

Really like how, once again, you manage to show such a consistent, self-contained universe Aha! You've hit the nail on the head! Would it be wrong to mention the Isle of Sodor in this context??? I agree with Philip too about what effective backgrounds the buildings make, just right. Cheers, Andrew.

I should lend you my Silver Lady Rik so you can make a video of a live steamer around your line!
I was thinking about that - it would be fun to try to recreate the same moves and schedule with live steam...

Re: The Afternoon Mixed

Very good indeed, thanks Rik! I'd say it was so good that it brought a tear to my eye, but I think that's the onions I was chopping as I watched - I'm supposed to be cooking dinner... I'm very impressed that the line's looking and running so well so early in the year. The stretch by the stream is lo...

A little more progress - primed and temporarily back in place prior to final painting:

Re: (WH)WHR Buildings

Good morning! With warmer weather approaching I'm looking forward to running trains semi-regularly, but first I'd like to get the area around the tunnel sorted out - it's currently a complete mess, and it's where the signal box will end up, so both projects are kind of linked. As reported here, I cr...

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

I think I remember reading in one of Peter Jones' books about maintenance of a garden railway and how much time could be occupied just keeping it tidy. I recall that too - I think I remember an article when he put a ratio on the amount of time that should ideally be spent maintaining what you've al...

Re: Semi-scale BR: low cost tank wagon

on to the next one! Excellent - keep 'em coming! That's a beautiful finish you've achieved - which I reckon goes a very long way to detract from any non-authentic features? Kind of like a slick magician using misdirection... That's intended as a complement, hope it comes across that way! Cheers, An...
