Re: The Hollycross Railway Company!

I'd just 'roll' the lengths of filcris for a couple of days, they'll adopt (and pretty much keep) a curve in no time. Looking very good though - there'll be no bending down on your line! 8)

Re: (WH)WHR Buildings

Through the nail? A very painful injury :o Very early on in the building of my garden railway I managed to introduce two of my fingers to my circular saw :roll: I strongly recommend that people do not try this at home, work or anywhere else! The most embarrassing part of the whole palaver was fainti...

Re: New beginnings of a small railway

Great selfies, but you seem awfully young to be building a garden railway... Good luck with the build, looking forward to seeing how it progresses - and first train celebrations too! All the best, Andrew. :lol: I was going to suggest that you make better use of the DLH (Daddy's Little Helper) - he ...

Re: Small balcony garden railway

Lots of wonderful detail, and I particulary like your crane. Is that from a kit, or a scratch built item?

Just to add my two penn'orth Phil (and add another Phil to the mix :lol: )-
You could stil ballast with SBR, and either leave small holes at the board junctions to act as drains, or simply drill through the set SBR on the board junctions afterwards.

Your crossing keeper is clearly a man who doesn't enjoy gardening :lol: One wonders what he's doing with all his spare time now he's finished his lovely paving?

Re: Lymes Disease

Interesting Phil. Late May Bank Holiday I was at Kingsbury and got bit on my left arm. I was left with a red rash that became very hot, burning even a few days later [but NOT targetlike. Red, growing and even grew outward in a little tail until I was given some antibiotics by my doctor. I did some ...

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

Lovely job Peter. I love cutting slate, but it does make a mess doesn't it? I take it you've left the roof slate full thickness? I split the ones I made to about 2-3mm thickness, using a stanley knife blade. Very satisfying but tedious, and only a 60 to 70 per cent success rate :oops:

Re: 'Refurbishing' the Bridge over the Greta

I don't seem to have noticed the last 2 comments on the thread, so apologies and thanks to Rod and Derek for the kind remarks, and I love the new word Derek - defurbished I shall add that to my dictionary! :D I have pretty much finished the bridge now and it has been fixed in place (with Stixall).

Re: Lymes Disease

Sorry to hear about this Phil, I know you said you were under the weather, but this sounds really nasty. Fingers crossed for a full recovery. Thank you Philip. My fingers are crossed too! :D I managed another hour in the garden this morning. Trying to get finished photos of the bridge is proving di...
