Re: Figures

I must admit that some of them seem a bit zombie like, or maybe they're just startled to now be out of the box in which they've been stored, some for a couple of years!

Figures

Just finished painting 30 figures in preparation for the next running season. Range of sources - quite a few from ModelTown, a couple from Jon's People which I bought at Llanfair in a Bits Box (as they were missing limbs), a handful from Motley Miniatures, a couple of whitemetal figures from Trenarr...

Running mixed trains

Just posted a blog entry about how I marshal and run mixed trains on the PLR. As many of you will know, I do like the logistical problems which shunting operations throw up on my railway. After reading the recently published book on the Southwold Railway where a whole chapter is devoted to operation...

Re: North East Victoria Railway

Just been catching up with this thread. It makes interesting reading.

Just wondered if you'd got the Deltang range problems sorted out with your DH loco?

Re: Wonderful G Scale garden railway

Huh. Lawn needs cutting... :lol: But seriously, very impressive civil engineering required to achieve those changes in level, but maintaining that line and keeping it clear for operation must be a nightmare - no wonder he doesn't have time time to cut the lawn! :) I assume it's track powered so I c...

Re: The (Windmill Hill) Welsh Highland Railway

Great pix, Andrew.
The new loco already looks very much at home. You seem to be lucky with your weather. I'd hoped to get outside today but the fog never cleared and the temperature reached the heady height of 2.5C!

Re: Wonderful G Scale garden railway

Actually, it's not as enormous as it first appears. It doubles back on itself quite a few times.

Wonderful G Scale garden railway

I know G Scale is not to everyone's taste on this forum, but I really admire the landscaping and planting on this layout. It's based on the RhB in Switzerland (you'll recognise a couple of familiar landmarks) and is located in Canada. To my mind well worth watching into at least half way (when he do...

Welcome to the wonderful world of retirement, Graeme, and also to the Blogosphere. Not so much mentoring as making an occasional suggestion. 🤔

Re: Garden Rail Magazine

Thanks Rod. The article has turned out quite well even though I was worried it might be a bit too wordy - I even made the front page! Hi Andrew. I knew the article was due to come out today and so popped into Smiths but they only had last month's on display. If I'd known, I could have picked it up f...

Re: GRR - Light Railway Extension

We have a made some limited progress, life getting in the way. The idea is the new station will come off the loop here. 20191230_151642.jpg Which means this corner needs some work, a point added and I'll replace the Mamod track at the same time. The station will then sit next to the shed, using the...

Re: MARCH 2020 Quarterly Photo Gallery Entries

Decided on different photo to the one just posted so removed it. Again, one from the archives as snow is a bit unpredictable these days.
