Re: CDR Railcar No. 10

Very nicely done Rik. Re the roof joint, rather than seal it and hope you don't need access in future ( you know you will just as soon as it's sealed!) you could disguise it with 'joint strips' running from eaves to the luggage up rack on one side of the joint. Matching dummy strips at the front end...

Certainly some interesting ideas Tony. Thanks, I can see myself making use of that in due course.

Re: Neighbours of garden railways

We live on the countryside edge of a small market town halfway from everywhere to everywhere else, which you'd think would be lovely and peaceful, and so it used to be. However, the A43 dual carriageway is a few hundred yards away and normally there is the constant drone of traffic, but for the last...

Re: The Great Garden Railway Inspection Reports

I wouldn't think the Inspector would take too kindly to being transported so far by box! I don't see why that would be a problem, he is made of a flexible plastic, nicely padded in a fitted foam liner inside his ABS box. A bit of gaffer tape to hold it shut and then a Jiffy bag should have it sorted.

Re: The start of my garden railway

@Andrew - A triangular junction would be nice but very expensive. I might look into it at some point though as it isn't something I had considered. I must admit that when I looked at you trackplan and proposed extension, my first thought was "Why no triangular junction?" I appreciate the cost consi...

Re: The Great Garden Railway Inspection Reports

Surely with the hot weather abating down here, some more of our Southern Hemisphere members would be interested in receiving the inspector? I had aways hoped that it might be that some of the southern hemisphere railways would use their summer to fill the gap caused by the northern hemisphere winte...

Peter, I've looked several times but I can't find any links to Jerry Irwin products. Does he have a website?

Re: The Great Garden Railway Inspection Reports

Quite agree with Peter's comments, simply superb, Andrew, thanks.

Also interesting to see the relationship of the two ends of the line which I hadn't really understood before, even though I've followed your posts from the beginning.
