Oh blast!!
We need water down here badly, and thought we could secretly siphon some down from a place that has plenty. Now the cat's out of the bag.

Re: The Leawarra Nayook Railway

Hi Dan, It's held at the Gembrook Community Hall, but I'm afraid you have to register and pay upfront. It is a great three days, closed to the public, a big hall, two large layouts, some commercial stands, lunch morning and afternoon teas included. Didn't know what your situation was up there, perha...

Re: The Leawarra Nayook Railway

Thank you Dan, and welcome again to the forum. Any chance your coming down to the Great Southern Steam up this weekend ?
Good luck with your project, sounds like a 2ft. gauge cane type loco coming up. Be good to see some more colonial flavour.

Re: TVT - First Turnout and Infrastructure

Been trying various bits of steel tube as a fit on star pickets, was looking like the order of 1 7/8ths ID. Did think of square tube but didn't have any big enough. Glad you got it sorted though, a circle by this Easter surely. See you Friday. Grant. PS 30 X 30 angle glued! glued! glued! what's this...

Re: Flexible track

Interesting debate on the efficacy of rail benders. I've never used one. I'm in the same boat Rik, never had or seen the need for one, perhaps because my minimum radius is 7ft.6". To me flex track allows you to have transition and sweeping curves. To use flex track and bend it to 5ft. radius or les...

Re: A stream for the Elderbury & District Light Railway

Nice one Philip, that works well. I like the sound effects too, both the gurgling water and the bells.

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

The CRV is now completed, and I am pretty satisfied with the result And so you should be Peter, I've always admired the CRV. Often wondered why there was not matching curly roof pass. cars. I had to check my pics. of the CRV re the "Dogs" door on the side, thought it may have been a Butler mod, but...

Re: A Quiet Sunday

What exactly did you paint in? I was quite happy as I took the camera inside to download the pics. Wriggling the camera in through the side door while keeping the viewfinder sticking outside to frame the shot, and obviously concentrating on the subject and not the background. This is the shot witho...

Good luck with the recovery Dwayne, hope the back problems don't become too much of an issue. Backs are bad news on garden railways.

Re: Much modified HGLW Mochyn visits the LBBR

What a great video, I like steeple cabs. I'm guessing more than a couple of hours spent putting that railway together, (couple of lifetimes for me!!) Very impressive track laying too, with all six vehicles as steady as rocks, and four wheelers as well. Thanks for posting Phil.

Re: Using GRP

Sorry Philip, although far more familiar with GRP than I would prefer, I can't see your idea working I'm afraid,(hoping I'm wrong!) as to preserve it all you would have to wet out the glass' and I would imagine it will just become a very low relief surface albeit with straight striations instead of ...

You should have a long train of nothing but open trucks and a van for the GSSU.
