  1. Last week
  2. Hi Roddy, good to hear from you yeah being in hospital for 11 weeks is enough, only lasted to weeks and had to go to the Ipswich hospital and at long last home ward bound tomorrow all up have lost 25 kilos of fluid was i5 at the PA , lost 10 kilos at the Ipswich. Will rest up fort he first two weeks and not going back had enough even tho the nurses and doctors look after you can't complain there and the food is good get afternoon tea and morning tea I usually get a lemonade . First scratch building project is model the British HST coaches they are pretty long like the new colour schemes for my 66 scale diesel to pull. Glad to hear from you , take care care Tony from don under keeping on moving a head
  3. Hi Tony, long time no speak. Great that you are finally going home. You will need to rest up and slowly get back into the routine. I haven't done any modelling for a long time, but am playing just now with N gauge. The question will be, do I stay on a small baseboard, or dare I go into the garden, or even do I keep my small baseboard, but hook it onto a long garden loop so that the trains have somewhere to go? I have the same problems that you suffer. Big plans that never really get anywhere. Are you a Gemini by any chance? Anyway, take care old pal. Get your tracks running before mucking about with boats and other things.
  4. Hi guys, since the upset of the bad health scare ,and sadly still in hospital, all goes well homeward bound tomorrow will depend what the docs say today. The time in hospital I have had time to redesign my layout with the bridge part of it, sadly Camdale and other name changes at the old place I have could with the great name Redbank West Railroad based 00 and Ho scale Redbank is where I live now . I plan to use that plastic hobby sheeting and used for advertising and election time mainly for the three modules for the station complete, will be strengthened make them very light, will keep all the curve and straight ply sections. Will start in the next couple of weeks once I am home, cant wait. There is the new track plan , good news home tomorrow hope I have a good night . Tony from down under keeping moving ahead
  5. Hi Andrew, nice lot of pics , if I saw right out have a creek to cross, that is awesome, my ro ro ship sit well in it and I that old 0-4-0 little steam engine, something different of course the 66 stands out and the last pic epically the track cleaning loco. UK,s track clearing service. Take care Tony from warm down last week of winter 30 degrees today.
  6. Moving away from the Southern Region... and from much further afield is this DB Class 216 diesel: Josh's sound fitted Class 66 looked and sounded good but his intermodal wagons were a bit of a handful to keep on my erratic track: Finally, in the absence of any conductor rails to clean, it was time for a bit of weedkilling:
  7. Two lovely videos - a real summer feeling. Great to see those grimy locos, esp the 56 and 37. It must take you a while to put all those wagons onto the track. And the flowers are superb, a fine show.
  8. Part 2 and 3 of July's filming. The new Cavalex Warflat wagons feature in part 2.
  9. yeah, on one run the pantograph of that db 112 got caught, luckily it didnt get ripped off. I'm paying closer attention to the plants now after that.
  10. Hi Andrew, many thanks for the kind words yeah the docs say mid next week or earlier, be nice to be home and stay home , yes have a project hat needs to be looks at , I have a German 103 electric , thanks to my friend he dropped it the front left side where the buffer needs to be filled in. I like your choice of Aussie locos is a NSW 42 class loco used for mainly passenger , like the Indian Pacific mid 70's Take care Tony from down under keeping on moving on
  11. Once you're home again Tony, everything will look better and you'll have some great ideas for the railway. Get well, and I hope they let you home very soon. Here's an old Lima NSWGR loco especially for you:
  12. That looks like a great railway, with quite a long run. Well done for getting all that track laid. You'll have to watch out that the plants don't grow up and start to grab the trains...
  13. Continuing with the Southern theme from Geoff and Josh's visit, here's a Class 73 on what looks almost like a Gatwick Express: Never mind about the absence of a conductor rail. After which we move to the Uckfield branch where this Turbostar, having left Victoria far behind, cruises through the Kent countryside on the single track section near Cowden:
  14. Back on the DGR It's spot the difference time: OK, the real thing was running with black nameplates that day, whereas the model has red ones. And the Peco track doesn't look anything like real track.
  15. Theres been a break in the weather today and so I managed to get the railway running and I filmed some trains, the footage is wobbly and the audio cuts out ( I think because I was covering the mic on my phone) but I think I can fix that for next time.
  16. Just created a channel dedicated to the railway, I havent been able to film anything today as it has been raining but ive uploaded a video I took a while back using a camtruck.
  17. Earlier
  18. Thanks, I dont have any videos at the moment, I'm still considering the best way to attach them and I just havent got round to filming many trains but ill make sure to take some next time I have the layout running. for now ill leave you with a picture of my class 46 passing the (currently unnamed) station.
  19. Hi Tony We were in Switzerland (Ticino) and now we stay in Italy, but today we are in San Marino, oldest republic in the world. You keep getting well soon! Best Regards Thomas
  20.

There be a how new name and new track plan back to 54 feet , sadly in the Ipswich hospital , hopefully home next week . Tony from down under keep moving ahead
  21. Hi Archie, welcome love those last two pics track is very good , don't have that felt in Australia , I have just used ply and paint it gray , looks good. Where do I go to find your videos . Tony from down under
  22. Hi Thomas, many thanks for the kind word be in hospital till next week. Have a great holiday where are you going, I have to be well enough to go for a weeks holiday which we are planning. Have fun and take care Tony from down under
  23. Hi Tony! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that the hospital discharge will work out too. Fortunately, we are not affected by the flood disaster. But from tomorrow we will go on vacation for two weeks. Regards Thomas
  24. Hi Thomas, wow very impressive indeed/ a lot of different bridge designs I will be having two bridges no idea when I be getting to the layout, still in hospital hope to go home tomorrow. Did you get effected with those floods Take care Tony from down under
  25. I was a little concerned also when I saw that. He has, however kept it simple to start with, which is good advice imho.
  26. More bridges built, but engraving the stones is a painstaking job.
