Thanks for posting the Inspectors report, Peter.
I think this must be the first time he hasn't found anything to criticise, I'm certainly not looking forward to when he gets around to me!
Ah, well, he's not inspected a "Railway of the Month" before - he's star-struck!

Re: Botch Idea

Glad they work well - they look great too! I really like short bogie carriages...

All the best,

Re: Railway Modeller - Brockhampton & Umbridge

Sorry, only just catching up, haven't been online much lately, but a belated congratulations on a fantastic article. The pictures were superb, particularly the full-page shot showing the whole layout. The combination of your article and the wonderful one by Andrew Crookall last month will indeed do ...

Re: Ffestiniog Hunslet 125 gala webcams

I share your frustration about the picture quality and the tendency to freeze, but - much as I love the other lines - you can't beat the FfR for variety. At the moment I'm particularly enjoying watching Linda on the 8:40 from Porthmadog - extra carriages are added when she returns and a Double Fairl...

Re: The Great Garden Railway Inspection Reports

I'm glad the inspector found everyone in the end! Whatever may not have been to his liking (I can't imagine that he's overly fond on horses on the platform...) he must surely have approved of the wasp-striped gauging vehicle? Something similar's on my to-do list, so I can spot and deal with encroach...

Re: The (Windmill Hill) Welsh Highland Railway

It seems it's not just us railway modellers who find it more convenient to glue their ballast in place. Not my photo, but I spotted this at Paddington yesterday: https://live.staticflickr.com/5179/5494892385_35123b681a_b.jpg Quite realistic, don't you think??? I'd like to see the size of the syringe...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Nice wagons! I particularly like the brake van, I must crack on with building one of those. Good idea for the timber bolsters too... "Beddgelert"'s a beauty. Shame about the overhang thing though, which must be a pain - you need some NWNGR 4 wheelers to run directly behind her. I might cut some more...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

My railway's been in such a mess for the last few years that all passenger services have been suspended. With long overdue track work finally bringing it back up to scratch, my thoughts are turning to passenger carriages again. My WHR Summer Car left the works a couple of years, but was almost immed...

Hello!
