9F Rolls into Bambrough station on running in trials


....and in the woods.


For other pics take a look at the "other manufaturers" forum thread under the topic "anyone remember these?". I've posted up a load of pics with my triang stuff on.

The greatest steamers ever built in my opinion :D Nice model too 8)

Cheers metro.. yeah she is a beauty.... they were not liked by anything other than the Western Men when they first appeared though. A lot of them got the hump over the fact that Swindon had the last word on steam engine building!

Cheers Lee.. The BBQ is one of the reasons why i haven't done many videos for the past few months (apart from the dismal weather) The BBQ was falling apart & needed re building so that took up most of my time.

Glad you like the vid though

:D :wink:

Just had a quick catch-up with this thread and I must say your videos make it seem a bigger layout than it is.

I keep thinking of doing something in the garden - will have to keep thinking on that one.

Keep up the good work

Cheers raider, I would say that the running line is about the same size as running a train round the edge of an average living room. It's just a little 2 up 2 down town house garden in a little part of a big city he he

Just a quick question - what did you wood did you use for the track bed?

Well ... hereby hangs a story and I was waiting for someone to ask! Where the garden shed is now (housing the rolling stock) there was a very small "lean to" tool shed. In order for the Bambrough line to exist, I needed a shed where I could not only keep the stock but operate the trains so the "lean to" had to go! The "lean to" tried valiantly to break my nose in it's demolition ,please don't ask how, because I knocked myself out doing it and i can't remember why I ended up in casualty!.. that is he truth. I had the upper hand though , because 90% of the Bambrough line is made up of extremely good quality plywood.....which used to be the "lean to" shed that nearly broke my hooter!

The supports are made of cut down fence posts that were marinated in creosote... (and yes i mean proper coal tar creosote... not the pathetic replica rubbish you get today!) and are still as solid as the day they were planted with a huge mallet and my arms!

bet you are glad you asked now :-)

Must admit I expected a shorter answer, but this was pretty entertaining :lol:

I guess it just goes to show that you have to suffer for your hobby as well.

Cheers for the information - giving some thought to a potential project.
