It is being investigted by the Health and Safety Executive (Feline Branch), though so far the only conclusion they managed to reach was that it must be cllose to dinner time :roll: . The main cause is that I need to adjust the lower tracks as they seem to have 'moved' a little :D

I will be adjusting the whole lot anyway. This is why I only secured the track with screws. I think the track base has finally settled, so that will be the next major engineering task! Once that's done, the retaining walls will be fitted. And no more disasters, crossed fingers ;)

Cheers

Superb video's
It's very nice to see a full length HST for a change.
We all learn lessons as we go along!
Mine was a class 45 falling around 200 scale ft.

Well, Moorcroft (St Anthonys) will be a five platform station with a further branch station called Munro Street at the far end. This will eventually link up to a branch that will curve round and end up in the shed...hopefully :roll:

The sidings are just going to stay exactly as that, purely to store trains doubling as a through route to the GW main line. Essentially, the layout is a fictcious railway equivalent of the M25 :D Mind you, I doubt that in time I'll run to a very tight timetable schedule...

Gets in the way of sunbathing and beer drinking ;)

Heres a few more to be getting on with.

My Blue Deltic, hauling "The Corinthian", makes a couple of runs past the HST stabled in Platform-5-to-be:

http://s146.photobucket.com/albums/r259/Infrontcat/?action=view&current=DelticpassesthroughMoorcroft.flv

It is the passed by a bullet...or rather, the Hymek having a quick 'running-in' bfore assuming duties:

Then passes the same loco now with train waiting for the signal:

And here's a few shots of both on the move:

http://s146.photobucket.com/albums/r259/Infrontcat/?action=view&current=DelticandHymekpassonMumledonRise.flv

Hopefully, by the next lot of shots, I should have done the retaining walls and sorted out the gremlins on the lower tracks :D

Cheers guys, happy weekend to all

Tim, Great videos. Loved the green Hymek. I had the Tri-ang version when God was a boy. I meant to say the layout, looks ACE........

Some lovely turns of speed there - just what was the (original) Corinthian?

Er, as far as I know, it didn't exist. I've merely called it that because the Fantasy Football team I run in the NRM league is called Moorcroft Corinthian :D .

It's representative of a 'Special' (hence the Pullman carriage, buffet and first class only rake) that runs...er...somewhere ;)

Hell, i might even make a headboard for it in the future :)

Once again a very fine set of video's.
The sound of your trains is really nice on the video's.
Is it really load?
Does your fence act as an amplifier?
