  1. Thanks Mart, Nige, Tony, et al. Will try and get something running asap but will only be backwards and forwards at the moment as I've now pulled all the track up that ran through the shed! I'm going to make a scenic indoor layout in the shed so I can still run trains when it's wet but with pointwork going outside for dry days.
  2. Hi Ian. Either in pictures or video your railway is always a pleasure to see. Keep up the good work mate. Regards. Mark
  3. Hi Tony. Great to hear from you again mate. Hope you're well. Yes we are out of harms way thanks. Nearest 'target' to us would be the Meadowhall centre. Glad you're progressing well with your railway. I've run a couple of test trains to check for clearance etc as I built the tunnels. I'm pleased to say that all was well. I know what you mean about constantly changing your mind but I think I'm on the right track ( pardon the pun) now with getting the railway how I want it. Regards. Mark
  4. We also have some steps over the railway now as I didn't think the liftout section that ran over the path worked too well!
  5. That's beauty now mate. Congratulations on a job (very) well done!
  6. WOW!! Looking good mate! Nice job.
  7. A few images of the new BoW line. Gone is the viaduct and all the log roll and the up and over bit that I was never really happy with! In its place we now have 2 tunnels and a station platform will sit in front of these. Pics to follow. We've also undergone a name change from the Baimor line to the BoW line. ( Baimor on Waverley line). Baimor still as before but I thought Waverley as that's the housing development we live on on the old orgreave colliery site. As you can see it's still very much a work in progress but we will be running trains again by summer.
  8. Good luck with the new railway mate. Looking forward to seeing some pics. Enjoy the new tools. Not sure I could be trusted with a bandsaw tho!! Remembering my bad jigsaw experience 18 months or so ago!! I'd probably do myself irreversible injuries!! Haha!!
  9. Hi TGB! Hows things mate? I'm determined to put pictures on in the correct orientation now which is proving harder than I anticipated!! How is your railway doing mate? Got to say to Mick also that I'm loving the forums new look!
  10. Forgive me father for I have sinned. It's been 6 months since my last confession!! Oops!! Wrong forum!!:-) :-). Hi guys. It's been a while. I hope you're all well and your railways are progressing as planned. There's been quite a few developments on the baimor line of late. Mainly a name change to the BOW line. ( Baimor on Waverley. Baimor for reasons previously stated and Waverley after the name of our housing development.) A few pics will be uploaded as soon as I'm able to do some non-aerial photography and I've even opened up a youtube channel and will upload some videos as soon as I figure out how! Regards all. Mark
  11. Hi. Warmest welcomes to the forum. As above but don't ask Nige for any advice about electric planes!
  12. Hi Totonlover and welcome to the site. I'm sure on here you will find all the answers you need mate. All I can say is time taken during the building of your railway will pay dividends later. Dont be afraid to ask questions youll find we're all a friendly bunch! Looking forward to seeing some pics when you get chance. Warmest welcomes again mate. Mark
  13. Eyup mate. Long time no see ( or speak??) . Looking good mate. I've only got 2 words to sAy. WOW!! And WOW!! Loving the entrance to the shed mate. Looks really good. What's it made of if I may ask? regards. Mark
  14. Hi Tony. Thanks for that mate. I never thought of searching threads before asking. Glad all's coming on well with your layout mate. I must get some more pics of mine as I've changed quite a lot! I seem to improve 1 bit then see something else I want to change!! Regards matey. Mark
  15. Can someone explain the difference between insulfrog and electrofrog points please and which is best for DC outdoor use??
  16. Been to the east coast for a few days and had a lovely surprise when I got home. I'd placed a bid on a bundle of nickel silver flexitrack the week before last with 8 days remaining on the auction. I don't really need any more track but have been thinking of doing a loft layout to keep me busy when the adverse weather returns so thought I'd put a £50 bid on which is about 2 thirds the cost of a new box. Got home last night and the neighbour comes round with a parcel. I didn't really expect the seller to send them considering how much I won them for!! The winning bid??? £2.45 for 29 slightly used lengths, 13 brand new lengths and 2 sets of left and right express points!!!!!! eBay is my friend
  17. Just returned from a lovely 10 days in Lloydminster. Canada is such a lovely place er indoors has her sights on moving there!!! I'm just about getting back to the stage where I can run some trains and now she wants to emigrate!!!
  18. Hi Tony. All I can say mate is WOW!! That's an impressive structure to model! I seem to spend more time rebuilding my layout lately than anything!! At least this time round I'm not rushing it and I know it'll be how I really want it not a compromise just so I can run some trains! Regards. Mark
  19. Forgot to ask where about are you then Roddy?
  20. I was genuinely shocked (in a good way) with the prices too!! I came away with 19 lengths of flexitrack ( that's all they had) and 11 lengths of semi flexitrack for less than my local model shop!!!
  21. Yes Roddy. Had a fantastic day. Weather stayed nice too. Made both our days seeing the Flying Scotsman there. I wasn't expecting that! Lovely clean place too. Just a shame the outdoor play area was closed. I've added a few pics in my album. Regards. Mark
  22. Hi Griff. It's always sad to lose something you're familiar with mate! As good a tool as the internet is, I can't help but feel it's the root cause of lot of businesses shutting up shop or just going on line. The overheads of running an online business are miniscule compared to running premises. I do think we all are slightly to blame as well as there's nothing easier than sitting in the house and ordering on-line. It won't be long before there's only online shopping available! regards. Mark
