Discussion in 'Layout Progress' started by Simon, 3 April 2010.
And there's this:
No trains running, but here are two shots of the garden line in the current weather, the first one was taken late-ish on Thursday afternoon, the second one this morning. If anything it has got whiter since this picture but I don't know what tomorrow will bring. Given that there won't be much point in opening the shop if its still a white out I may attempt "ploughing" the line and running a train, then again I might not!
I think the card school has long since retired to the "Shunters Arms"
But Simon, what about the loyal customer who has trudged, hiked and skied forty miles through atrocious conditions, blizzards and a lack of KFC, only to arrive at your Emporium, hoping to purchase the latest MRJ and read something interesting from Bob Essery about model railway operation, only to find it closed?
Anybody prepared to go to that much effort could probably use a phone
Well, he's just been in and bought three books, visiting from Vermont and currently on his way up to Edinburgh
Can I go now?
I'll stick around until lunchtime I think, but after that.....
Well I did, but the light was a bit pants and snow was going slushy, so here we are. As you can see I have really mastered the art of getting sensible sized images out of the wretched "photos" on the Mac
Getting the mail through I thought, then aping the cover of MRJ 235 and finally giving the newly dirtied bogie bolsters a spin.
We were open all week – for a handful of sales, mostly via phone or email. One problem was that the couriers couldn't get to us to pick up the larger orders. Our railway was working though...
Last weekend some garden tidying took place. Most notably the boy Harry (considerably grown since this thread started) was up in the Horse Chestnut tree thinning out some of the branches.
We have also run wires along the boundary behind the sheds and through the new hedge to help it grow into a useful shape. The tree clearing is in order to get more light and air in to this hedge and back of the sheds area.
Next Monday is a Dave day, so hopefully some trains will be seen soon.
Earthworks out on the line today, small engineer's train spotted in the vicinity.
They say that as you get older, you model bigger and bigger scales! I model 'O' at the moment, and help with the 'OO' at our club (get out the magnifier!). If only I had the space and the money it would be G1 for me. Nice photos. Can't wait to see how the layout progresses. Cheers, Earl
And first on track testing of "Druid" last night.
Another Fred Phipps kit, being masterfully built by Andrew Vines. Shows some new landscaping of the line too.
This is running beautifully on an ABC gearbox with delrin drive to second axle, and will be finished in Maroon with Full yellow ends.
To be chipped and with sound, it is going to be utterly dreadful!
Looks rather desert sand as it is. The eventual MFYE gets a thumbs up.
