Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Very nice JMORG! I particularly like the WHR brake (I must get round to building one this winter!) and the "porthole" bugbox, a lovely looking carriage, I think. I wasn't too sure about the ("Prisoner" inspired, I think???) livery on the WHHR 4-wheeler either, but I agree, it looks great on your mod...

Re: NEW FWLR LINE

Great to see some progress on your line Rod, and that's a very smart turntable. I particularly like the chap watching on the bench - it reminds me of the turntable at Minehead, where turning engines feels like a real spectator sport... Look forward to more pics in due course... All the best, Andrew.

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

Despite the open sides, so ample ventilation, there is also a vent on the roof for some reason?.... It looks a bit like the clerestory in 19th C carriages, where the oil lamps went - perhaps it's for sheep/tigers who are afraid of the dark? Very attractive wagons, they'll look great in a mixed good...

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

That's quite a wagon! I wonder if it was ever built, or was just an idea on a drawing board?

Re: North East Victoria Railway

Wow, that was quite an update! It's all very impressive (I DO like that 4-wheeled brake van...) BUT that big diesel is just phenomenal, what a beast! Incredible detail too - it must have taken about a week to print?!! Thanks for the update - I look forward to seeing the stock in action out on the la...

Re: The Cockatoo Creek Tramway

I like the busy shed scene.

I'm guessing you didn't have any hands free for photography while you were double-heading two manual locos - one of them a Mamod?! Sounds fun though...

Re: 3 D Printing 16mm models

What I have worked out is that there are errors in the drawing I used. I took the drawing from the 7mm associations book on the Festiniog rolling stock, and it shows a central external frame vertically in the central panel. I note that photos of the original coaches - and my own photo of the replic...

Re: 3 D Printing 16mm models

I recognise that wagon Philip! It's a nice prototype, isn't it? And you're making a lovely job of it... I haven't done any more drawing yet, but I spent lunchtime today collating photos (I'll send them to you) from which I should be able to work out some measurements - but the floor's about right, s...

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

You lot are making my mouth water with your Skylarks and Corris brake vans, both of which I'm fond of... That does look like a splendid kit, looking forward to seeing how it turns out...

I was hoping we were going to see a Double Fairlie in LBSCR style "Improved Engine Green"...
If 'Improved Engine Green' has a hint of maroon, then you're in luck!
Works for me!

Re: 3 D Printing 16mm models

Good advice! I wish I'd read it before I got stuck in to building the floor of my wagon! Several hours later I've got something that looks reasonable - although I've no idea if it'll make a viable print! I'm attempting a model of an FR tipper wagon, built on the chassis of a 3T slate wagon - see: ht...

Re: 3 D Printing 16mm models

Thanks for the thoughts chaps, and the offer of help Philip - I'm looking forward to have another play with it, maybe this evening. I drew something that looked vaguely like a tipper wagon body yesterday (from memory, just to practice), but think probably I need to get stuck into a project and see w...

Re: The Leawarra Nayook Railway

I've just spent two and a half days doing nothing but shunting trucks and Pass. stock around Leawarra yard. Two engines in steam, amazing how long gas and water last cut right back. Engines also look good just sitting in the sun with a wisp of steam at the safety. Only time an engine left the yard ...
