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

Nice to see your indoor line. It's really nice with the backscenes as so many others have said.
I am 'experimenting' with printing photos for my backscenes.

I also had a first look at a few of your videos of your garden line- it's a beautiful line and yard.

Re: A tiny G gauge indoor layout

........ but the two main waterfall drops don't yet 'work' to my eyes, they look too 'solid' and white. IMO you need to inject some transparency... maybe go back to using the good old 'crinkled cellophane' type base with white flecks added to taste? Thanks Philip. I did make some 'test' pieces usin...

Re: Yr Hen Felin & Yr Orsaf Newydd

That's a beautiful little coach. I suspect a similar looking one might appear on my railway soon.

Sandstone and Termite web pages

I have always had a large internet site for my trains, consisting of over  50 pages. You have always seen the link at the bottom of my ‘signature’ here. I had not had time to keep the pages up to date over the last few years, but a month ago I tried to open them and they didn't work.  After much was...

Re: A tiny G gauge indoor layout

Scenery progresses slowly on the line, with a 'lake' and waterfall and river gorge complete. Some track ballasting done too. Here's a video of a 'pretend' operating session showing just the scenicked bit. https://youtu.be/b3jd8w6tz28 and the gorge DSCN4717.JPG (not happy with the waterfall yet) and ...

Nice to see the Aussie outline buildings. Love the awning over the window. Very Queensland.

Re: A tiny G gauge indoor layout

Very timely Aaron. I am just about to try and make a tree! Yours look great.
I am still struggling to 'remember' how big G stuff is when it's indoors. Even a small tree will have to be 9" high

Re: Constructing an Embankment

I think it looks GREAT. Maybe a few plastic 'bushes' or some reeds?

Re: A tiny G gauge indoor layout

It's always a problem trying to use a real photo in this way, because whatever you do, you can never look in exactly the same way that the camera was pointing, and as soon as you move the perspective goes out the window. I've always ended up with doing a kind of impressionist rendition, that the ey...

Re: A tiny G gauge indoor layout

Lovely work on the scenery Greg. Where did you get the quarry backdrop from? Thanks for the ideas of using Pearlite. The quarry backscene came from the internet. Stretched, mirrored, cut and pasted etc. Just a test at the moment. I have trouble getting the angles and ground level correct. This one ...

Re: A tiny G gauge indoor layout

Thanks for the update Greg, I'm glad you're making progress - which looks pretty rapid to me! I'm really enjoying this project, which is giving me ideas for the future. Actually, as I type this in my office at work I'm looking around and wondering what I could get away with... All 3 of my mates who...

Re: A tiny G gauge indoor layout

Graeme - I have seen videos using the neg ion generator potted component. But all my searches for 'negative ion generators' just come up with fully constructed units. The neg ion generator in the Boulder Creek video, as being sold by Oatley Electronics - no such thing appears when I search the Oatl...
