May I ask WTD.............. At fear of being laughed at, why is the picture just in the middle with the sides cut off. Is it something to do with a mobile phone camera.

Honestly some people ask really daft questions :D I haven’t got a clue, I was going to ask the same thing. I reckon you are right about the mobile. Next time I’ll take the video landscape and see what happens.

Landscape mode always looks better for most general videos as that is how we see the world around us. Portrait mode is fine for just, well portraits! :D

Haven’t seen your posts for a while WTD. Love the progress you’ve made. Coaling stage is great - nice use of colour too.

Thank you Mick or can I call you Bandit? :)

The hardest thing to find for O gauge are commercial vehicles. Bought a Dinky Toy replica flat bed lorry. They say they are 1:43 scale but are really 1:50. Look a bit small if you stand a figure next to them. Plenty of cars snd vans but not lorries. There are kits but cost about 50 quid.

Hattons have commercial vehicles for sale. They say they are 0 gauge 1-43 . https://www.hattons.co.uk/stocklist/100 ... dtype.aspx

Yes thanks Barry. Oxford Diecast may produce larger vehicles hopefully.
