Re: A brewery for Beeston Castle

Sounds like a perfect opportunity for some creative synergistic marketing! "Sell" their products on your line in exchange for a cratefull?

Re: Building a freelance diesel for push-up duty

Very nice, as always, Greg. I do like the range of sound effects. You commented earlier that you wouldn't bother to elaborate on the electronics because some aren't interested, but I for one would love to read it. My electronics abilities are strictly limited but always eager to learn a bit more fro...

The Great Forum Railway Inspection

Peter's comment on one of the other threads reminded me that many years ago ( well about 7 to be precise) we had the Forum Great Railway Inspection running. This was a lighthearted 'critique' of members lines and visited locations, written and posted by themselves. The 'Inspector' was a gentleman by...

Re: A signal box

I agree with Peter, a very neat idea.
Also, it is surely about time that Mr Isles reappeared!

"How to build a model railway"

I've just come across this on the Beeb.
Some very fine modelling, even if some of the write-up is a bit "ignorant journalist" in style!

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

Top notch finish, Peter. That 3D printed driver looks so natural. A great addition to the fleet. I would love to see that motion in action. Looks like I'm talking myself into another visit. Rik Rik, Pleeease remember to take your video camera, because, with Peters' consent of course, we would all l...

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

Oh dear Peter!
SWMBO has a 'thing' about the colour purple and she has said before that I should build a purple loco. I am going to be in so much bother when she sees this magnificent creation of yours!
Cheers pal! :lol:

Re: Peckett Body Build - First Attempt

It's looking fantastic Steve. I wouldn't worry about the gap, it's small to begin with but once everything is painted with primer, a couple of top coats and varnish on top, it will disappear, especially if you do paint it black.

Re: Finescale Engineering Quarry Hunslet issues

He reckons it was working but I haven't done anything to the pipework so all very odd. Even on air, nothing is coming out of the pipe for the pressure gauge. Is it possible to blow air back through the gauge pipe into the boiler? If not presumably there is a blockge in that pipe somewhere/somehow?

The Quarterly Garden Railway Gallery

Well I'm not sure how much real support the idea of a photographic 'competition' has, with 24 yes votes and 4 no votes, but 646 views of the thread! Even with multiple visits to look at posts/replies, I suspect that means that a lot of people are not interested. However if only half of that 24 actua...

Re: Repairing 'crazed' paint

Thanks guys. i think we are all on the same page. It used to be called "Turps substitute" here. However these days there are products called "Low odour white spirit" which smell different and don't have as vicious effect on plastics,so might not be as effective in this application.
