Yes it was lazy Rolling Eyes especially considering what a great bit of modelling it is!!

You are hereby sentenced to produce an article for MTI about it, as punishment for your slothful ways..... Razz Wink

Nice video, I like the way the gates slam open and shut! Laughing The simplest solutions are usually the best.

Hi Dudley

The garden railway in the background is my outdoor inglenook! Originally was a couple of coal bunkers many years ago and since removed. The area was then a bit of an overgrown mess, gloomy and damp as there were several large conifers the other side of the fence (in the 110 acre cemetery where we live). One day a few years back I cleared it all, had the trees removed (they were on the way out anyway) which opened up the corner and our back yard area to more light and no tree debris! I had a fair amount of Playmobil track so threw down a circle and a couple of sidings. Then decided on live steam and changed to Mamod metal track and a Regner Vincent loco - bashed a bit to 7/8ths . The little diesel is a Houston Gate Loco Works kit (30 including motor etc) bashed a bit to 7/8ths scale too so running on the Mamod track it would be 15" gauge in real life (whatever real life is!!)

Before..

Regner

battery loco


Cheers

I sprayed and weathered the Mamod track and fixed it down with epoxy. There is just one set of points and one siding but its enough for me - just enjoy watching it pootle around with a few skip waggons etc while I have a beer and read MTI on a nice evening!!

I was lucky to pick up a fair bit more Mamod straight sections and curves at a local toy & train fair for 20. Not sure for what or where I will use it - maybe just do a "throw down" circuit outside in the cemetery on one of the paths that's been gravelled recently ...

Roger

Things have been a bit quiet down at the Bottom.

I had an enjoyable time at the Yate show filling and tipping the skip all day - and the "stand" we had there promoting the Lea Bailay Light Railway was kept busy with lots of interest and raised a few quid too.

Lately i've been in an Emett mood.
