Come on lads - let's be positive here. The scenery looks great Tom - the layout has really come on, and I can tell from the photos you are really proud of your first bit of scenic effort. Looks top notch to me! :D

I wouldn't disagree! :D All comments about the bogie were in jest :lol: It just looked like a scene that was purposely set up :wink:

Tom- How do you find your pullmans run? They are the older style ones right? I want to get a rake of pullmans and was thinking about the new devon belle coaches but I'm not sure about the prices on them, since they've got the sprung buffers and light up table lamps. But the older style might do just fine! :)

Thank you all for your comments. I'll make sure the wheels are in place next time I take some photos, or set it up so it looks like it being fixed :P Mighty, thanks for getting the thread back on track and for commenting on the scenary, I've run out of supplies at the moment but hoping to stock up soon. I am proud at my first attempt.

Redline, I've personally not have any problems with the running of these coaches, they are performing well on the layout and on a previous layout I had which I did post to the forum. They still need some weathering but the running is good for me. :)

The funnel steam looks very realistic, the steam coming from further down looks somewhat ghostly :)
I like the sun effect in the top left hand corner, just need shadows :P
Good job,

Cant believe I'd missed this one... I cant help echo whats already been said but the scenery is a fantastic job, very realistic and natural indeed.

My only criticism would be that theres not enough photos of the Princess !!

Thanks for the comment about the scenery Dr Stroganoff :) I have actually just broke the Princess out of her box, more picture of her will follow.

Pedanticmongrel, I was hoping covering the wheels with steam would hide the bogie error :P It's been quite a infamous photo eh!

Been a bit busy for a couple of weeks so just had a bit of a catch up on Lodge Valley.

I'm really sorry to hear that you've been having some problems with your bogies :cry: I blame the central heating, dry air and all that :lol:

looking at that pic i can't believe that no one else has noticed that the reason for the derailment could be due to the huge earthquake that has just cracked your platform in half!!! :shock:

Seriously looking good fella, scenics are great.

Cheers

“Well, I’m back.” Samwise Gamgee

Hello there,

After a long summer without any railway modelling, I have returned. There were many reasons for the lack of progress over the summer, the ‘nice’ weather being one of them. The main reason for my disappearance was the arrival of a four-legged monster, a cocker spaniel puppy (also known as Floyd).

Here is the monster:

Anyway, back to the trains. I went back into the loft last week and it was in a terrible state. Months of just throwing things up there and not tidying away had wrecked havoc on Lodge Valley. It looked as though it has been subjected to an earthquake, a hurricane, and then an after tremor from the earthquake, which was finally followed by gale force winds. However, after a good tidy I thought I’d post a few up to date recap photos. These were taken in bad light so not the best quality I'm afraid.

So, with the railway bug still burning away, I shall retire to the loft more often to complete Lodge Valley. So, whilst I’m on that subject…..What is the best and cheapest method for making wooden fencing? What is the best and cheapest method for rural road surfaces?

Thanks for looking,

BomBaDillic :wink:

I've heard of people using match sticks and wire/fishing wire for fencing..

And for roads i have no idea.. you could use concrete and add scatter?
