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.

Do what you like so long as it is to do with railway modelling. :lol:
Decorating the bathroom (or anywhere else) is not allowed here. :lol:

NO reminders please of what I should be doing when I'm actually in the layout shed.

Thank You.


Another video would be grand. Different angles, perhaps a still of the marvelous waterside with the
train cruising through it.

I second that.

Sorry but I keep returning to St Oval.
Here we have a lazy father's day freight running through quietly.

One day perhaps I'll get around to finishing this 'Favourite' running oval. A year since many trees
were removed to do an exhibition on another layout and they're still in the box !!

A question for anyone watching.
Which is the 'Wren' wagon ?

I'll vote for the second cattle wagon. Looks a bit short but has the essential hole in the upper door.

Sorry Bufferstop - Wrong.

The second cattle wagon is from a Dapol Kit and is in fact the right length.
The wrong-un is the patched Bachmann RTR, for some reason they've never re-tooled it.

I'll choose the white van. No reason because I haven't a clue.

Hi Glencairn,

Knowing now what the first 2 are you were left with one chance in 7

But - Wrong, that is a Parkside kit for which I still have to get the right decal sheet to finish.
That has it's own story - paid for but never received, chased and never received, promised and never received !!

Is it the Esso tanker? (BTW shouldn't it be Wrenn)?

Brilliant PNP,

Who but an experienced 'N' gauge modeller would pick up the missing 'N' !
You know I had to get my magnifying glass out to check, yet the optician thinks
my sight is still O.K to drive ?

Well no, the Esso tank is from a Dapol kit. While the Bachmann cattle wagon is long,
my 'A' tank is short, simply a re-paint and re-numbering of the 'B' class tank. I'd have
to check the details, but the light distillates can have a larger tank that carries the
same weight. Both fit on exactly the same chassis. More pointless knowledge. Could
I be bothered to add a small slice from another tank - No Way !!

I will send you a sheet for your Mica sometime during the week Geoff. They are waterslide from Modelmaster, left over from a long-finished project. If you are using roundels, enough for one; if you are using large GW initials, enough for two.

Hi Tony,
Thanks for remembering you still had some, let alone sending to me.
I'll PM you the story .....
