I have had to update my Youtube Video's, as it seems I used some tunes that were free, but annoyingly, months later, say that I can't monetize MY videos, as the copyright owner is adding adds because I have used copyright tunes?
Cheek! It's free, but we reserve the right to make money instead of you!
In reality, there were no adds and I need another 3,990 hours of watchers before I can have any :lol:
But that's not the point! I did not upload them for the benefit of others to make money from them!

So where do you get free Tunes?

Answer - you don't!!!

So what to do? Easy!!!

Make yer own!

A quick "session" in the Lumsdonia "mixing studio" and hey presto, Lumsdonia Ride Along the song, was born!

Now featured on most of my Video's

Timbersurfs Youtube Channel

And for the insanely bored, the full 5 1/2 min version Lumsdonia Ride Along

I like how your swing works. Some posts I miss and then I watched one of the films with the working swing and thought "How does that work?" and then the mechanism is shown. :D Kept me guessing at first as I was looking to see if the tube at the top was rotating back and fore. Then I thought the mechanism was well hidden to transfer the movement down through one of the swing arms of the framework... :lol:
When I saw how you did it I was almost kicking myself that I didnt think of the method... Its so simple and effective!
Well done for the films.

Just returned from Stafford rail show and discovered a new supplier Petite Properties who have some superb buildings in Laser cut mdf, but need paper covering or stucco. I could be tempted to build whole roads with them!
Also added a few more to links pages:-
Lighting - Rail Room Electronics
Lighting - Micro Miniatures
Laser Cut Models - Poppy's Wood Tech

The Link to "windows" is now active too
