Track is now laid in shed and is looking good thanks to help from Peter.
Unfortunately no photos again. Take photos on my iPhone 4s pics get sent to iPad but still says file too large and now won’t load to Mac where I could resize. Never mind I will persevere until it’s working.

A real pleasure to be able to help you both, we would love to see pictures of the progress so here's hoping your 'phone problem can be sorted.

Glad it's worked. The app like many others has to be set to reduce the size of the original images.

Hi Julie, Love your line, It’s looks brilliant. :thumbright:

Have you tried sending your photo’s to your Mac by Airdrop. It’s an app that should be built into you phone. :) :)

Thank you Rod, for your help with photo issue, I have had to get a new phone so I think all is well now. I haven't done anything more to the line yet but hopefully will soon :thumbright:

Julie,

Great to follow the progress of your line. I wish when I bought my house I'd known I was going to want a railway in my garden. I'd have made sure my garden was bigger. Now I'm limited to a small plot. At the time I wanted something easy to maintain.

If I put a shed in my garden the size of your's it would take up half! Nevertheless I'll figure something out while saving up and acquiring everything I'll need.

For the time being I'm limited to running my trains as a guest on local lines belonging to modellers of the 16mm association.

Enjoy your railway. I'm sure it will provide you with much enjoyment.

Ian

Hi All, I had not done anything much with my railway planning until now. A visit from Peter and all things are go. Here are some pics of the last 2 days. Thank you Peter for your help and inspiration. Have to wait until next week now for next delivery of materials. I am so happy :lol:

Looks like things are progressing nicely, Julie - even though the sub-contracted supervisory workforce does seem to be taking it a bit too easy ...... ;)

Nice bit of workmanship in the hot conditions. Some of the pictures really show the slope you are working on. It's looking good.

A very pleasant couple of days working together to get things moving forward after a short break. The temperature reached 33 degrees on Wednesday so a number of rest periods with cool drinks were needed. We 'seniors' don't need to rush!
The best things in life are free.... so why am I doing this?
