I saw the pristine 4MT 2-6-0 at the North Norfolk Railway not that long ago and now (along with any of the Bulleids, obviously) it’s on my shortlist for the Most Agreeable Looking Locomotive award. Ooh. Is that this one? 20180925_151019-01.jpeg https://youtu.be/Qh2NTv19lZM I was there in September ...

... Youtube offered me another cab ride of a Swiss-inspired garden railway. This one couldn't be more different, but it's still worth a watch I think. It starts off as a fairly typical garden line tootling about a slightly overgrown back garden, but wait until you get to 2:29... Unless you suffer f...
Following this with interest Andrew. i have a plywood built small signal box that has been outside continuously since 2014, and is now approaching 'end of life'! This would make a good long term replacement I think. How have you constructed the window frames? Are they just butt joints, or are they m...
Interesting choice for a scratch build Rod. Have you thought about a moving (motorised) version? With a couple of guys hinged at the waist to bend appropriately, I bet you could make a convincing mock up of the real thing.

I can’t imagine how you all manage to organise and glue the damn things into neat, equally spaced rows. I can’t even pick ‘em up... And another 'handling' method. I shape a small piece of blu tack into a fine point, and pick up the little critters with that. A light dab of plastic weld or similar a...

Really enjoying the winter photo's :D I'm one of those who loves snow - I'm so jealous of Newfoundland and their snowmageddon last week! Sadly proper winters seem to be few and far between in England lately. Here's my entry for this quarter's competition - "PW work cancelled today - heading home acr...
I'm not at all impressed with today's so called 'comedians', particularly as they are now constrained by what they are allowed to say so not to be interpreted by delicate 'snowflakes' as being insulting to anyone, anywhere! Attached is my all-time favourite TV moment from the American soap, 'Soap!'...

I'm in awe of anyone with model engineering skills. It's beautiful Graeme. There once was a time when an old fart like me could learn such skills in later life with night classes at local colleges. Sadly cuts in the education budget now make that rare or non existent :x Keep up the good work :thumbr...
