Re: The Cockatoo Creek Tramway

Good to see a log train Mitch, so when you going to build a Saw Mill. I could advise against it, as a project they don't seem to end!!!!!

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

I agree with Rik, it's not easy to cut out windows and have them all as even as yours. Great work.

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

Good to see the rails being polished again at BURPS. The first pic. is very typical in my mind, sitting in the sun in a car waiting for the train to pass, perhaps counting the carriages.

Re: CDR Railcar No. 10

I agree totally with Peter, considering what you started out with, missing items and instructions etc. you've ended up with a nice working model. Well done.

Re: A Quiet Sunday

Thanks Peter, I enjoyed that. Quite the opposite end of the scale to the computer controlled, hydraulically powered machinery of a modern mill. The casualness in proximity to the blade, safety thongs, the list is endless, but I guess they get the job done. Don't know if you looked at one of the foll...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

That certainly is a characterful carriage Andrew, and it has side steps :mrgreen:
Looking forward to your build.

Re: Sunshine!!

Two very nice pictures there Rik, for the weather I'm a glass tapper. Every morning I tap and reset my barometer to know whats happening. Although I do like to check the 500km. rain radar on the computer for a more short term answer.
Enjoy the sunshine.

I like the way you've caked the wheels in the relevant road surfaces.
Actually that last pic. is quite old as I was running it along the wall of the dam up on the property. It was good because I could walk alongside with it at about chest height, however it was rather muddy clay.

Re: A Quiet Sunday

Reading during the lock down, discovered how many Fowler B6 road locos came to Australia. I once again measured my Wilesco against the Fowler B6 General Arrangement that is available on the web. The conclusion that except for the width across the rear wheels the measurements all work out for 16mm sc...

Re: Disasters, Out-takes, Accidents, Fails etc.

Well done, the wagon can still carry the load so in a commercial sense no reason to stop it working. Brilliant pic. again.
Really looking forward to Rylston Light Mark 2.
