Re: Something a bit unusual !

I will be watching with interest. I fancy building something similar maybe based around a mamod VB unit.
The centre vestibule gatestock are attractive vehicles. Got a drawing of one in an old magazine.
Will you be finishing yours in salmon pink/chocolate brown?

This is a stunning model. The curves on the bodywork are quite subtle but you have absolutely nailed it.

Re: Southwold stock

Another folk enthusiast here, who often attends the Rochester Sweeps Festival. There seems to be a close harmony between rail enthusiasts, real ale drinking, morris dancers and canal boaters.

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

One of your best yet, but I'm biased. A big fan of the 73's, I was unaware that they had gone North. Your model captures the simple elegance of these machines perfectly. Hats off indeed!

Re: The Reading and Squamish Light Railway Stock Thread

I asked a clockmaker friend if he had any small nuts and bolts. He said 'How small? 'I said 'Ooh, 6BA? He replied 'That's enormous!'
Nevertheless, he found some for me. Know any clock repair people?

Re: North East Victoria Railway

Lots of interesting rolling stock there. Particularly impressed with X class diesel.
I like the idea of the aluminium container flats too.

Re: The Potters Orchid Railway

Just watched the video right through. It gives an idea of how just how much work has gone into this quite complex system. Faultless performance.

Re: Ideas for a bridge replacemnt?

You're up a gum tree here.... sorry. That tree is at a heck of an angle by the look of it. Does it sway much in the wind ? That could affect the alignment. Is there no way you could keep the existing bridge? It is clearly a goodun and one that you are fond of. Can the approach to the bridge be reali...
