Re: September 2023 Photo Gallery - CLOSES 7th SEPT

Peter’s photo will take some beating this time, what a livery!

Re: The Great Garden Railway Inspection Reports

An I.N. Spector calls... After a very long and tiring journey from "Down Under" my comfy travelling trunk has finally arrived back in the British Isles. On emerging, I appear to have arrived at a small goods shed on a rural railway. Fortunately there are some staff about, who look at me so...

I might also have him but surely would be written up for being out of scale (running 5" gauge). I see no reason why that would be a hindrance. If you look at the forum masthead, it says "An international forum for garden railway modellers in all scales and gauges." If you want him to...

Re: The Great Garden Railway Inspection Reports

A mysterious packing case has arrived at Claxton Percy on the Bishops Woodland Light Railway.

The staff are baffled, whatever could it be….

Re: The Bishop's Woodland Light Railway (BWLR)

Full marks on the backscene painting. Looks like the gardener in the second photo is having a crafty kip ..... :D Rik Exactly what I thought, on both counts. :D He’d obviously been consuming too much of the local brewery products. Drink on duty, disgraceful! ;) The back scene was the work of my mum...

Thanks for the comments on the hand lettering :) I’ve lettered the tool wagon using vinyl to match my existing departmental wagons. 506D5E43-E314-4C39-8EF7-9015F9A549A3.jpeg The above photo taken on the indoor line mentioned before.

Re: June 2023 Gallery now open for entries

I'm testing the parameters with this one. Does 'in bloom' mean flowers only or will any sort of foliage qualify? Not sure Rik. I have my view here, but I've asked Peter (BWLR) for his thoughts since it is his theme. Lovely picture BTW, this is shaping up to be a good competition! I’m ok with attrac...

Re: The Bishop's Woodland Light Railway (BWLR)

It has been a few months since my last update. However I have been keeping things ticking along with various projects including adding to my stock of wagons.

Re: Garden Railway Gallery, Winners Thread

A very high standard of entries this time and I think reflected by the votes being spread out amongst all the photos. I’ll have a think about a theme for the next comp.

Re: Line Side Hut - Flat wagon with tool box load

A real shame to see them close, they produced some really nice kits. I have a couple of their Corris clerestory carriages in regular use.
