Battery help please!

Hello all, I'm hoping someone can offer some advice... Not having had a working railway for a while I'd not used my Andel Moelwyn for 18 months - when I did come to use it the battery had died. Both Andel and Strikalite have offered advice but the problem is that I'm entirely clueless when it comes ...

Very nicely done - that planking looks great. Like the shelter too.

Cheers,

Andrew.

This is looking fantastic, really enjoying watching the line grow. Love the way you've incorporated the tree into your station site. I'm looking forward to the next installment...

Hello! I agree that it would be great to bring her back to use if possible, although I guess their Baldwin is going to be the priority after Russell - they've already got a new boiler I believe? Gelert may not be part of the WHR's pre-preservation story but, like Mountaineer and The Ladies on the ot...

Hello! Those wagons remind me of some early ones of my own. I purchased a Mamod goods set when I was 13 and over the next 10(?) years gradually made a few changes to them. The first one was a scratchbuilt open wagon with curved ends, Southwold style - the only Mamod bits that used were the frames an...

Nice video, thank you. I really like seeing trains pausing and passing each other instead of endlessly charging round and round. If I can finish my line before the kids are too old to be interested I'll be looking to enlist them for some family running sessions on my end-to-end line. Your wagons are...

I have to avoid looking at books about trams... I think I could get REALLY into them... A fleet of 4-wheeled single deckers or open-topped double-decked cars trundling round the garden in ornate liveries would be quite something... Plus the odd quirky service car... And a depot, with the cars all li...

Hello!

Like the factory!

Not only two trains running, but shunting too, very impressive. If you're going to run two trains then Regner locos are a good choice, so slow runing and dependable, I'm very fond of my one.

Cheers,

Andrew.

Me too! It just looks "right", despite not being to scale - a useful reminder that a ruler isn't the only tool for creating realism...

Wow, what fantastic progress! I reckon I average about a yard a month, but I'm hoping to improve things over the course of the gloroious summer we'll surely have this year... The quarry section's looking great - I love that you're using your own rock. My suburban back garden doesn't yield much in th...

There's one propped outside the goods shed at Dunster that's home to the West Somerset PW Dept. I'm guessing they don't have any immediate plans to use it...

This Everything except Princess and Livingston Thompson... and probably Mountaineer... Which wasn't mentioned in the article... Yes, I wondered about Mountaineer... Princess and LT seem fair enough, but it would be a shame if Mountaineer was left unloved at the back of the shed. Guess we'll have to...
