Re: The Charnwood Forest Light Railway

As a Filcris advocate, Ive learned its a very easy to use product, quick to erect, easy to cut, screw together and one big advantage is its flexibility. Ive noticed this numerous times on my railway when on a hot day, the whole frame can move outwards slightly as it expands, though ive never had any...

Re: Peckforton Light Railway - Video Library

Another superb little clip of the life and times of ' The Peckforton'. It really is a fascinating little railway, the reporting is as good as any railway journal, the little people and their lives are believable, and the blog is packed with such interesting and invaluable information. I watched the ...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Loving those wagon loads and the fact they can be easily swapped about utilising the wagons full potential as per prototype. I used bath sponges, 35p from a local Pound Shop. I just nip the top to remove them. Here's an I.P. WD open wagon with a load of sand, which is actually not sand! I just carve...

Re: The Charnwood Forest Light Railway

As the advert says Andrew, Every little helps! Even just mulling over ideas or pre planning is all progress. I'm the same, things seem to stop for a while, then all of a sudden, it's all happening. Battle on, you'll get there!

Re: The (Windmill Hill) Welsh Highland Railway

For me, I love the encroaching foliage just begining to meet between the rails, and also the guard taking in the fresh air on the verandah of his van. Fantastic atmosphere!

Re: The Hollycross Railway Company!

Good afternoon everyone! Well, I've just come back indoors after a couple of days graft on the railway during a weekend possession. There have been further developments around Hollycross Station and the Junction after deciding to forge ahead with an idea that's been 'bubbling around' for bit. So, wh...

Re: Peckforton Light Railway - Video Library

Superb bit of video, reminds me of the steam special videos on YouTube showing the well patronised carriages and the lights reflecting outside. Shame it wasn't a longer film but understandable. Brrrr!.....

IMG_20190405_162422.jpg My IP coach rake. I used thin ply for the roof in place of the plastic card provided. I used 3 or 4 elastic bands with some thin planks between the roof and rubber bands to hold everything till the glue went off. The van is also an IP WD van which I altered to a curved roof ...

Re: Semi-scale BR: electro-diesel time travel

Gorgeous model, looks a real beast and captures the look superbly, but it'd look better in malachite green..... Fantastic!

Re: The Hollycross Railway Company!

Another little development! The decommissioned branch has been reinstated, albeit only the first few feet for now. Using the last few bits of Filcris I had to hand, I laid in the junction and a basic framework to lay the top section of the branch towards the rest of the garden. It falls away at 1 in...

Re: The Hollycross Railway Company!

Thank so much Andrew, it was a nice couple of hours. The various liveries add a bit of 'railway' colour I feel, and the Binnie skips and bolster wagons have all got the Roy Wood (RWM) steel replacement wheelsets fitted. So much better having the bit of added weight and they sound great over track jo...
