Hi Terry B !!!!

Thanks for the comments. Didn't realise the videos loaded that slowy.

The town is quite close up to the front of the layout. It's easy to move buildings etc to get at stuff. I also stand on an alluminium photographic case if I need to get further in. Also the park is removeable and I can kneel on that part to get at the station if need be. Hope that explains things.

Once again, thanks.

My very Best Regards

BILL.

Hi Bill!

Just sat down with a refreshing cuppa after a morning of metal cutting and bonding (what fun...not! :evil: ) to make mi' power-box. Yet again, I feel refreshed an invigourated by the great videos. Love the lack of editing, as I felt like I was actually there :wink:

Really enjoyed the opening shot panning out from the bus! And I like the brafty 'pan-left' whilst the HST was given a litte help :lol: Very live TV "It'll be Alright on the Night"-esque if you know what I mean!

That room always makes me think how lucky you are to have a room that's small enough that you feel comfy yet with loads of room to do what you need to. I think this is why we like your set up so much: there's so many aspects of it that appeal. Perhaps you should try teaching "Model Railway Feng Shui?" :lol:

Cheers mate

Hi Chaps !!!!!!!

It's me again, nutty Bill.

Dropped the wife off at work this afternoon and took the camera with me to catch the 2.15 on it's way to Douglas ( about 15 miles)

Didn't photograph the station sign at Port Erin but thats where it sets out from.

Port St. Mary is my home village by the way. Coarse it started to hiss down but onward and upward. The trouble I go to to give you stuff ( boaring as it is)

Anyway I though it may be a change from the usual.

Most of the stock is 100 years old plus a bit. It runs a regular service for eight months a year. I think there are about 14 locomotives in all. Anyway, see what you think.

It might be reasonable in full screen. Try it.

It was going to be a quick hours job but in the end it was seven hour including uploading it. ( what a martyr I am :wink: )

My Very Besr Regard To You All

BILL.

Great video of the IOM steam loco Bill. Last time i went to the IOM I think I managed to cover every mile of track & tramway! Delightful place
- for me 'lost in time'.

Good 'raw' videos of Lilford also & no derailments !
Best wishes

Hi Ron !!!!
Nice to here from you !!

Glad you liked the videos. Sorry there were no derailments. I'll see what I can do for you next time.

That's more than I've ever done and I've been here for 30 years. May be some day?

My Very Best Regards

Hi John !!!!

I'm glad you liked the video. Somewhat of a change I thought. My wife thinks it's wonderful which is very unusual.

Derailments.......... Just as a point of interest to boar you even more. About six years or so ago the Manx government decided to instal a totally new effluent system. I'll not go into that save to say it was and still is a massive project. It meanrt laying new sewer pipes througt the island ( 36miles x 15 miles). Seeing as how they own the land on which the track is laid they ripped it all up, laid the sewers and then laid brand new track. so no more derailments ( yes there have been a coulpe). No, I don't think they used flexi track :wink: . I believe the journey from Port Erin to Douglas is as smooth as silk even with the 100 year + old carriages they use.

Just thought I'd mention it.

My Best Regards and Thanks

BILL.
