Re: Old videos of the Sandstone & Termite

I'd forgotten this video. Great to see it again. You're right, that shot of loco #14 (?) climbing the gradient towards the camera is probably my favourite view too.

Re: The Preseli Mountain Railway.

Every railway should have at least one railcar, to my mind, and your is a very convincing model of the species. Beautifully done!

I think we all share your pain of paint jobs gone wrong.

Great to see the now closed section in action. I can remember you building that 4-4-0 green loco standing at Melaleuca. It doesn't seem that long ago....

Hi Greg The link has an extra space just after the “.be” so doesn’t work as posted. Editing the space out works fine. https://youtu.be/hDOn09Tm7RE You say the fire has gone out - I think it must have been more a raging inferno when you were building and running the S&T. I look forward to revisi...

I've tweaked it a bit. Does that make a difference, do you think?

Re: Peckforton Light Railway - Video Library

Very enjoyable — and I imagine it must have taken ages to assemble and shoot. Quite a while, yes. But I was pleased to find that all but one loco worked first time straight off the shelf. Four have now ended up in the casualty bay as, although they worked, there were some issues which I want to rem...
