Tell her you need to test it for an hour in each direction. If it doesn't work she won't get paid back until you have a working one. :twisted: You get 2 hours running in, and she gets paid back as soon as you have the money as you will want to run it again :lol:

Well at least you got that castle back, Was there any damage on it?
Also what does an electric scooter have to do with this (unless it is 00 gauge)

Re: Windmill hill steam railway! an A4!!!!!!!!!!!

Postby manormadman » Tue Jun 15, 2010 8:28 pm

Big update
hello sorry about the lack of updates i had my head out of a coach on the SVR (5643+43106+5164) and GCR (63601+1744 Golden Oldies). It was boiling in the shed so i had to run a train ,go out ,run a train ,go out etc.
Anyway An A4 60025 Falcon has been bought by dad but im not allowed it before my birthday (31-7-2010). Its in br green late embelem and i think is the better tooled version. it was £50 from the fleet air arm museum exhibition from the signal box stall. it is un boxed because it was split from a set, and dad will probably test it.
Also i am currently having a week long GWR 175 gala with:-
1010
1444
2847 (still tender drive)
3047 Loorna Doone (not strong can't pull 2 coaches)
4160
4612
5322
5552
5786
6024 King Edward I
6624
6869
7820!!!!!! :D :!:
7825
32662
D7017 (standby/1 run)

None of the locos have failed so D7017 is not needed but its wheels need cleaning :) Pics WILL BE COMING SOON I PROMISE if i can work out how to do it right
Cheers for posting :D

Hi everybody,
A lot of news is happening at the moment. Firstly I've bought a B12 loco in the anglian set with the non corridor celestory coaches in carmine and cream. Secondly I'm getting tons of locos for my birthday (31st July): 60025 Falcon, a Hornby Hymek, 4930 Hagley Hall and 7819 Hinton manor. Thirdly I got a non corridor chocolate and cream celestory at Yeovil Junction, so now i have 4 non corridor celestory coaches. Also I have created a website for my model railway. GWR gala pics are below:
