I like the way it snakes smoothly, it must look brilliant running a rake of carriages or your coal wagons, even better.
I must admit that I have never taken pics or even looked along that view before. It has the ugly background of the entry to the train room. Might try some heavily cropped pics. With some camouflage netting?
The pic above with the carriages show a nice background that I have never photographed either, so will have to try some videos from that view and see if I can focus without the path appearing too ugly.
Oh dear that is a nuisance Greg. The trackside crew were out real quickly though. It's good to know that it is up and running again.
Those creatures are a menace when they decide to look in on the line aren't they. We have next doors moggie visit our's and it can do some damage, but not to that extent mate.
Always an absolute pleasure to wake up and find something new has gone awry, isn't it?
Looking at the broken bits from this end, the sunlight appears to have made the styrene quite brittle. Is it worth replacing those assemblies?
Yes the styrene does seem to be brittle. It is well painted and I have never had trouble with painted styrene outdoors before. Many other styrene buildings outside are much older. I used a lot of straight MEK as the glue when I made it 10 years ago. I think that MEK does that and have used 'proper' styrene glue ever since. (that's what you get for being a miser.)
