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

Rik, you are most welcome to visit, especially with your camera! The video which you took and expertly edited since your previous visit is here.... www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHWWkVZi1p8
It would be wonderful to see another showing my 'mix and match' stock.

Re: A brewery for Beeston Castle

Hi Rik, I did get a mate to print the windows but as there are so many printers about at the moment I'm sure there will be someone out there who can help.

Re: A brewery for Beeston Castle

Absolutely beautiful work Rik, it is a stunning looking structure and well worth the wait.
The final detailing will make it 'real' but the windows will be a chore unless you can get them 3D printed.
I have used printed window frames and they look just fine, they are also an economical solution.

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

It would be wonderful to meet up again Rik, you would be most welcome. I have a special reason to get the railway looking at its best as soon as the weather improves and a perfect opportunity to record the line in action with all of the recent stock builds. The 3D figures are the best available IMHO...

Re: The Quarterly Garden Railway Gallery

'...Not sure if you are wanting to enter it for this quarters Gallery...' Thank you. I thought this one was a laugh, that's all. I'll find another picture for the Gallery. As far as I am concerned that picture captures all that is best in spontaneous and natural photography. It could be a serious c...

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

Oh dear Peter! SWMBO has a 'thing' about the colour purple and she has said before that I should build a purple loco. I am going to be in so much bother when she sees this magnificent creation of yours! Cheers pal! :lol: I like to see colourful locos, especially those of non-standard design. Let yo...

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

Hi Rod, it is always damp and often cold here in West Wales so we have made the workshop as user-friendly as possible with insulation and multi-fuel central heating.
My elder son is a plumber, perhaps that has something to do with it?

Nice work Jim, the roof has come up well.

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

The loco is all-but finished with just a nameplate to add to the tank sides, a name has yet to be decided and I am on the hunt for something cheap and cheerful! I think there is a manufacturer who has a range of stock names available, but I can't find them..... any ideas please? ...... IMG_6169.JPG ...
