Re: Henley

Most thoughtful replies. What interests me is that the archeological shows universally indicate the Roman homes do not show reinhabitation, which seems odd, that the structures were flatly abandoned. This is seen in some paleo indian sites, here in my general region, and in Chernobyl. Later on, it w...

Re: A Question of OO Canals, advice please.

Thank you for the posts. I regret I haven't been on in a while, November has been a rather busy month, now a little respite in sight, hope to turn my attention back to this project of the canal. It's a little bit of a contrivance to work it into this one corner of the layout, but I think I might be ...

Re: Steam Trains to Sovereign Street on a 1914 theme

Looks smashing. Love the train activity down that little hive of buildings, activity.

Re: Small Inglenook sidings

I'd say that looked rather good. Then my hat is off to those among us who have the
jeweler like patience of arranging stones upon miniature track, and not fouling the
points. In future endeavors I might have a go with that.

Re: Henley

Dust bunny hair for Phil, now that's the ticket! I am looking at a spare Hornby viaduct piece with an eye towards making it a Roman Triumphal Arch, though I don't see any evidence for one from before AD 400. That, or the local Britons were throwing the pieces at them as they rowed off the beaches, g...

Re: Clackwick Circa 1955

I got to see the video, that is a beautifully crafted layout and the sound adds another dimension. The dieselization is most eye catching, as well. Are my eyes deceiving me, or is there a bit of splay in the center axle of the tender wheels? I can't imagine the drive gear fouling the works, but I'd ...

Re: Henley

St. Micheal's didn't make the first cut: British roman excavations and more 016.JPG After 400 years of occupation, very little Roman influence seems to remain. It is though the Britons not only shoveled them out, but threw their togas and perhaps a few sandals at them, on the way out. A Roman sea go...

Re: Henley

I have been watching "Time Team," to some excess. As I've often thought, all one has to do is stick a spade into the ground if in search of British history. In honor to the Time Team, excavations have been taking place behind St. Micheal's School in the fictional Henley: British roman exca...

Great parking lines. I've never been able to do that. Looks like Kansas!

Re: Small Inglenook sidings

I believe we need to coin a new term for this remarkable layout: a "Micro Mini Layout."
Ingenious, I love it! Finally a layout plan I can fit in my sock drawer!

Re: Steam Trains to Sovereign Street on a 1914 theme

Those tractors are brilliant. Really sets the 1914 theme. One small part of
a brilliant layout.

Re: St.Oval - A scenic Set Track Oval

Ingenious, very much enjoyed the video. The river scene continues to mesmerize.
Your layout is a standard by which I would measure my own small efforts.

particularly well done.
