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

I discovered something today which I thought I would share with you all.... One of the 3D standing loco driver figures I have has both arms stretched forward, but not at the correct height, so.... as an experiment I tried to lower one arm by about 4mm in order to grasp a control lever. In order to a...

Excellent lifestyle choice Trevor, television is such a waste of valuable time.
Everything I want is available on-line when I need to know.

Super job Trevor, the handrail looks great and the track-bed moving forward rapidly.... LBS will stay in business as long as you are in their area!
