Re: Remodelling Bulkeley Station

This will be a lovely rustic station area. I do like the bridge, and is that a charming wee cottage I spy atop the rockery.

Re: Semi-scale BR: almost a 2MT

There's something about a well proportioned mogul (or a 2-6-2T). This, like the N class, is a winner.
Looking forward to whatever rolls out of your workshop next.

Re: Semi-scale BR: almost a 2MT

I've fallen in love with this one already. A classic example of the maxim that the character of the thing is what makes a good model more than exact dimensional accuracy. It certainly has the utilitarian chunky appearance of the 2MT. What thickness of styrene sheet do you use for the for the main bo...

Do I detect an outbreak of Suffragettism ? !
I like the cameo of the Gent getting caught by 'the missus' ogling at the blonde.

Nice signal cabin too :)

Re: The Leawarra Nayook Railway

Next time you weather a loco maybe you could do a 'how to' video. You've absolutely nailed the technique.

Re: North East Victoria Railway

The DH looks great. It must be a heavy beast. I like the green coach in the background of the workshop photo. Is that a freelance model or something specific? Your mate's Sentinel railcar is a beauty too.

Re: Workshop/shed

It's a nicer workshop than mine, and mine took me much longer than 3m 43s to build too.

Re: The Leawarra Nayook Railway

You have to admire this railway. One of the most atmospheric garden railways you are likely to see.

Re: TVT - The lost Tribe

Good to see this rural Aussie scene, full of character. The bauxite coloured van is an interesting item. Is that rolled up 'blinds' I see there? Not sure what they're really called but it's a nice touch.

Re: Semi-scale BR: Strictly Bulleid*

...I reckon an N or U class mogul would look great... There’s the Schools class, too - which I’ve always thought actually looks (especially in profile) like a full-size toy train, if you know what I mean. Very impressed with your Southern Mogul. Captures the spirit of it nicely. The N is probably m...
