Many thanks to you Dave & Lysander,

It's something of grind finding such old files that are scattered over several
external drives and two computers. Your support makes me all the more
determined to press on.
In fact only pages 11 - 14 need rebuilding now. Plus loading 3 videos into
Youtube to replace those left on PB.

There are so many links to replace .... On my signature layout of Thomas
at Silver Fox Island 17 pictures on the first page !!

A video of my 4 latest kit/repaint wagons and 3 coaches. As it's running on St Oval that's where I've loaded it,
rather than in the workbench thread.
One day I must try to do more work on this much used oval.

I never get tired of watching trains trundle by at St Oval...

I havent quite got the space for a St Oval, otherwise I would be following you like a rat up a drainpipe :D

Dave,

Just keep doing what you do so well ....... New ideas, new materials
all put together with a nice dollop of grime. What ? Even snow !!
More memorable cameos than you may think.

Hello Dad-1,

As part of my resurgent interest in real Railway Modelling instead of dreaming about it, I looked at your layout on Youtube. It's incredible what can be acheived in such a small space. I found St Oval by searching for the minimum radius for a Hornby 42xx and was pleased that you managed an R1. I managed to get a Bachmann 56xx on a hidden 12 inch Radius curve on my old layout with no issues. I haven't tested my 42xx yet but I will need it to acheive Radius 1 also. I may be in touch for advice!

Hi Si,

Ask away, perhaps one of my main inspirations on NRM is just helping
others to achieve the enjoyment I've had from involvement in the hobby.

I'm finally getting up the courage/effort to replace my pictures, sadly, many of the Budgetbrooke ones are lost forever. I have "reclaimed" a dozen or so of the old stuff from google. I will need to get the layout back out again for more current ones. Gantsville thankfully are all here though.

Uhhh, It's dull, cold and drizzling, plus the wife's working in the kitchen.
So with my normal indoors painting area not available I thought I'd try
my new 4 pillar car lift in the garage at St Oval.

That Hornby decorator figure was the ideal pose, jut the wrong trousers,
or at least the wrong colour overalls.

This still gets work done from time to time, usually when I stalled on other
more pressing jobs.

Nice effect Geoff, that guy looks spot on, think if you painted him in dark overalls you might not see him. My first job we had red overalls that over many years of washing turned pink.

A couple of spare hours ......
Now a video of the OxfordRail Dean Goods with sound running a short freight.

https://youtu.be/8Wq3LoP_Tdg

Nothing more to say at present as I'm running-in, it seems to have a very limited
maximum speed. I'll be doing a check with the stop watch.

Do you get more hours in the day down in the West country than we do up in the grim North :lol:

I would have preferred a diesel and a long freight, however as always, I enjoy the simplicity of your videos 8)
