    I get the same, Richard, I think it's just slow. BTW, is your Neilson going to be sufficiently complete for a spin on Rundle? Along with some of those ballast wagons? It would look just right.

    OK thanks for the feedback Richard.

    I've just about worked out the basics of editing the website but always look at it with my laptop. I have a rather old phone which is up to looking at WA but not much more - and is very slow when looking at the Web, so I don't tend to do so. It has a reasonable battery life though and works well as a phone (which is what I need generally). My Manager has a much newer Apple thingy (required for Facetime with G'kids) and I'll have a look at the site with that later - and see if I can improve things.

    Looking forward to seeing Rundle at the AGM Geoff.

    Regards,

    IanT

    The layout now has legs. The roadway is laid and the setts are fixed in place and painted and grouted with tinted polyfilla. I used an old suede brush to scrub off the surplus polyfilla; this has also burnished the setts to give a realistic sheen. They do all look freshly laid, so I will need to darken the cement a bit when I paint the road.
    The wagon is a Williams Models flexikit of an RCH 5 plank stone wagon, with GRS running gear, built to look like a well used ICI wagon.

    It's a simplex petrol shunter, a model of the one used by the GER, LNER and finally BR, in Brentwood goods yard. BR number 15098. A retired driver in my model railway club remembers seeing it there. I wrote about its construction in my G3 Workbench thread. It's still not quite finished, needing the brakes and exhaust to be added. I have had sets of the etches, frames and castings made up and will be offering it as a kit later this year.
