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

Finally got round to writing up all the data on coach lighting. When I finally get round to making my own (DCC anti-flicker with LDR), I will document the process, release the circuit and maybe make a video. I have a few more experimentations to do to the final circuit, before I start the mass conversion of my stock!

I have started the journey writing up all the ins and outs of how to use the Arduino for animation. With a few programs written under my belt, now I have the construct of the code, I will carry on developing all the other idea's bubbling in my head. I will eventually document the process, to encorage or put off others from following me :o > I might even release the code and will probably make a video of each one in action when I get round to making the mechanisms.
