A Hasty Tour of Henley

I should have been grouping all this under one thread, but by the time I realized what I was doing wrong, I was rather deep into it. I shall, in the near future, to coagulate all this under one thread title. Apologies :o My latest drivel, slapped up before I whipped up dinner for the kids and motore...

Re: New Unnamed Central Scotland Layout

If I may say, that is a very smart, professional looking job, there. The road bed is most intriguing, in that it appears to be track applied to the table upon a gray coloration. Is that the final application, or are you doing the full deal (which I find harrowing) with ballast or ballast upon an ele...

Henley: Stopped in its Tracks!

https://youtu.be/0467A6BXOoU I had mentioned in my last post, under "HO & International," that it had been quite some time since I'd done anything fun with Henley, other than mutter at it. At last, some activity has returned to biggest small British layout in Texas. During the filming its always a n...

Re: Coffee Time in Armodilloville

Ooops, I posted under the wrong thread, so sorry. The layout is 4x8 feet. At one point it was extended with a 4x4 L, but this seemed rather bulky and didn't add to the story of Armodilloville, so back it went to 4 x 8. Using the same plan as Henley, the diamonds were a late development, and it certa...

Coffee Time in Armodilloville

https://youtu.be/neLYYAeVJlM Three and a half minutes of absolute rot. I did wander into some new Clanadonia today, just brilliant stuff, so perhaps I will roust myself to fire up Henley this weekend. Had a chance to fire up this new old SW 1500 shunter, that has a custom low gear drive. Model rail ...

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

It's been a wet old day today, so I have been having a bit of a tidy-up, and also re-arranging things in the stock cupboard. You may recall that I collected loco's before building a layout a few years ago, and working a ten minute walk from Beatties flag-ship store (later to become ModelZone) the c...

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

Beyond manky. Well done! If there is one thing lacking in model railroading today, it is a dearth of good old fashioned mank. One small step for mank, one giant leap for mankiness! :)

Re: Z Scale Town Site with Linear Motion Moving Cars

Yeesh. And for your next challenge: do it in T scale. Amazing.

For point of reference, a coffee cup, or like wise, in the image would assist in audience conceptualization of relative size, por favor.

Re: Bugging Out in Canada

Yes, some crazy little man, with an umbrella, was beating on the head of the driver, demanding he slow down! Name of "Puddles," apparently. Now that I've got this out of my system, perhaps I can turn my attention back to Henley, but that won't be until next weekend at the earliest. The foliage might...

Armadilloville Gravy Train

Time to get with the train boys, the gravy train. Accolades to Pink Floyd. Hope it makes past the censors.
