Re: Another milestone reached

Hearty Birthday greetings from me too, I hope you have a great day and enjoy the occasion. My own next birthday will be 70, but not just yet. You have much catching up to do! Thanks guys, I have to say that I found 60 more painful mentally than either 40 or 50. Alas, no train pictures as I've been ...

Re: Another milestone reached

I'm 60 tomorrow but that's nothing compared to 500,000 views. That is a milestone to be proud of.....60 isn't :(

Re: Meanderings in Dorset and Devon

Slow on the up take sorry, still wrestling with 4mm. I hope you enjoyed the Gartell railway, it's owned by my wife's uncle and aunt. Had the privilege of driving an ex peat works lister along the line in the late 80s when still under construction. I can still picture "old" Mr Gartell as his dad was ...

Re: Wadebridge Light Railway

Welcome aboard George. That's a cracking railway to start your introduction :D I do love that little turntable, I wish I had taken the time to build one at the end of my run round loop. As Andrew said good planning and engineering pays off, as Mr Impatient I can vouch for that...

Re: Vale of Fairway

I'm about to flog a load of OO stuff from the 80s - it's not worth much any more, but it takes up a lot of space! It's BR Western Region stuff I've still got hornby vdas and lima hoppers from the 80s in the attic, I even started upgraded to bachmann 37s before the garden bug but even they are dated...

Re: Vale of Fairway

It's busy alright, the top picture has a six foot skinny bramble growing across the track. The upper track is lost under the crazy nasturtiums I can only ever see a 4mm layout being a 4 x 1 foot micro affair. Cheaper on locos! The loco I got is missing a buffer and a window so at £130 seemed a cheap...

Re: Vale of Fairway

We'll you never know when it's going to strike but a few days in Cornwall has caused the 4mm bug to resurface. Experimenting with dcc and sound at my age! The sunny weather has made the garden railway look inviting so had a tidy of the overgrown waterside station area. Joe on the wagon was kind of r...

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

Love that strangely roofed side shed, it looks so real. Something you see in real life but rarely modelled. Genius!

Re: Lymes Disease

Hope you make a quick recovery and thanks for the heads up. I've seen Facebook warnings (American ) and always dismissed it. We do have ticks a plenty down here as there are free roaming sheep in the village and woods. The dogs have been spared the last 18 months through a change from frontline to b...

Re: A stream for the Elderbury & District Light Railway

I agree with the above comments that you can't beat running water. it looked a photogenic spot before so should look good when it's done.
