Just watched this, what fun! Yes, some of the trains were a little fast at times, but it must be a tough line for visitors to drive, lots of steep gradients and sharp curves. Did laugh every time the little green diesel with the loud horn appeared though, reminded me of the bit at the end of the Gre...

Hello again, It's been a while, but there's a little more progress to report on my (WH)WHR. I've just taken a week off work and between rain showers and various jobs around the house I got this small wall built: http://wklr.webs.com/photos/undefined/Yellow%20brick%20wall.jpg It's from bricks recover...

Hello, Recent weeks have seen some progress with the (WH)WHR slate wagon fleet - it's quadrupled in size to a magnificent, errr, four! The initial Binnie wagon has been joined by a second and I've also purchased and constructed two of Mat Peacock's pvmr 3D-printed kits for the FR 3 ton wagon. So her...

Very nice! I particularly like the balcony carriage. A bogie version of the same would be nice too. I reckon you'd get quite a few takers if you were to offer those commercially.

Looking forward to seeing the finished product,

Andrew.

I rather like the red ends myself. Canadians aren't known in general for the accuracy or prototype-ey-ness of our British railway models (we're better at it than Americans, however) so take this for what it's worth, but here's my van, it's an IP one: I doubt we're much better at prototype-ey-ness (...

Thanks for the photos. I'm not far from Exeter but was working yesterday, but it's nice to see what I missed. To make up for it I went to the Avon Valley gala today, great fun. The short run works as an advantage at a gala because the action doesn't get strung out - with four locos in steam there wa...

Now thee's a coincidence! When I saw Michael's post I started searching for one or yours Graeme, I knew it was something you did well. I got called away and now I've returned to my PC to find you'vereplied yourself, excellent! Really like how your carriage is coming along Michael - my first thought ...

The van will be painted in the same grey as the flat wagons, to make a uniform frieght fleet for the railway. What the brake van will be painted in hasn't been decided just yet. Ooh, how about the same colour grey, but with red ends? I love red ends on a brake van... http://www.ehattons.com/images/...

Ah, it's nice to see that again! It must be at least 20 years old? I've been thinking about it recently because of the new Swift Sixteen release. I met Gordon a few times when I was very new to the hobby, he always seemed to have something interesting to play with and could build stuff at a most pro...

Very nice! I've almost finished a less extreme modification of the same kit, to make it look a little more like the Ffestiniog's bogie carriages. That's going well enough, but this looks like really satisfying "bash", looking forward to seeing the finished model. Are you planning to use the balcony ...
