Re: Thomas Inspects The Line

Thanks both. All of the filming was done on the one dry day this month. The green screen stuff took half a day and the facial animations half a day - I'm getting quite slick at it now. The editing took 3 or 4 hours. The thing that takes the most time is coming up with an idea for a film. All great f...

Thomas Inspects The Line

It's approaching the 2024 operating season for the Wychbold and Stoke Prior Railway (WASPRly) and there are lots of jobs that need to be done before trains can be run.

Thank you. I think I need to be a little less ambitious when I make the next video. This one took a-g-e-s.

Thomas and Friends in Paxton and the Runaway Trucks

Diesel is in disgrace. Not only had he destroyed Sir Topham Hatt's new paint store, he had also damaged himself so badly that he needed to be sent away for repair. His replacement is Paxton, another class 08 diesel electric shunting locomotive. He is a friendly and helpful engine. If he has a fault,...

I managed to do some filming this afternoon. Just checking through the rushes now. Lots of derailments and crashes. I hope I can salvage something from it. :D

Thank you. At times I wished I'd never started it. I've probably spent days editing it. 😁

Thomas and Friends in Devious Diesel’s Disaster

There’s a new kid on the block. He's an oily character and doesn't mind who he upsets. Unfortunately poor Toby is the victim of his cruel tongue. Sir Topham Hatt has had a brand new shed built and he's very proud of it, but with Diesel's couldn't-care-less attitude it may not stay in pristine condit...

Re: The Wychbold and Stoke Prior Railway From The Air

Your lawn is almost bowling green standard. Mine is, at best, golf course rough. As Greg says, an interesting track plan. I like the junction for the branchline. Rik Thanks. There's still lots to do to fully integrate the railway into the garden, especially on the branch line side. The plan is to e...

Thanks Greg and, as you can see, there is plenty of scope for further development. :D

Thomas is shocked by a new arrival on the railway

The peace and tranquility of the Wychbold and Stoke Prior Garden Railway is about to be rudely disturbed.
Thomas and his friends do not know what is about to hit them!
There's a new kid on the block, and he's mean.

Re: Thomas and the Christmas Lights Train

I'm pleased they enjoyed it. It has taken a lot of work to bring it to fruition since the original concept was suggested to me by my friend at Pine Tree Junction.
I think I can now take a rest and put the railway to bed for the winter.
Have a great Christmas and New Year too.

Thomas and the Christmas Lights Train

Passenger numbers are down, goods traffic has dropped off too.
The future of the railway is uncertain. Can it survive?
Sir Topham Hatt needs to come up with a bold plan to save the railway from bankruptcy.
