Re: Coal bins for Beeston Castle and Peckforton

You're really enjoying this new found material I see..... no stopping you now! The bins look very realistic, proper coal too. Question.... what have you used to stick down the coal and is it on a support material? I used a thin layer of coal on a polystyrene base and the birds pecked away until the ...

Re: Ballasting track

Not being in the least domesticated (although fully house trained) I would never have considered a kitchen baster, but similar in many ways to my own method of using an Evo-Stik Resin wood-glue container (the old type before the fancy non-block (????) top was fitted).

Re: Peckforton Light Railway - First running session 2019

Well I certainly enjoyed it Rik, I had a smile on my face the whole journey. You have a great variety of stock to choose from and they all look the part.
It certainly is a busy line you have there, how you manage to control them as well as filming is a mystery.

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

With the coming of better weather and the changing of the clocks I have been reluctant to start a new project working in 'our' kitchen and waiting for the right time to set up my workstation in the 'Engine shed' again. I have now made the move and straight away a new idea sprang into the void inside...

Re: The Candleford Green Light Railway

Welcome Paul and congratulations on the start of your railway, the setting looks great and your plans will make it look good once established.
