  1. Part 2 and 3 of July's filming. The new Cavalex Warflat wagons feature in part 2.
  2. omg. I have been very busy filming out in the garden over the last couple of months. I have been trying to run every piece of rolling stock I own - perhaps I need to justify having it all! And I have more tee'd up, waiting to publish!
  3. No wood is the best wood imho. Concrete or plastics are best for a long lasting trackbed.
  4. I like the fact that you've overcome, what I would find a difficult garden, with what looks like a steep slope.
  5. Haha - I occasionally have the same problem with my Great Nephews! They particularly like filling empty open wagons with greenery.
  6. It felt like the 1980's at Westbury yesterday - 56096 and 56302 floating about
  7. The trouble with being off work and not having too much to do, is that retail therapy becomes too easy. I have recently aquired some Skytrex china clay hoods and a variety of LMS liveried freight stock - all in O gauge. The clay hoods were purchased from a facebook group ad, whilst the LMS stock was part of a bigger lot that Ellis Clark trains were selling. There were 3 more wagons in this lot, but I am going to move these on, as they werent required. Thius was an interesting lot, having been built from kits and possibly even some scratchbuilding - either way, they have all been well finished. The china clay hoods need number and data panels adding and I am going to add to the factory weathering. I know they arent the most accurate of models, but look like what I remember of china clay hoods.
  8. I have recently been off work for a few weeks due to illness (I am fit again now after a short hospital stay last week) and had a couple of former work colleagues visit the garden this morning. This called for a couple of trains to be run, including a fairly recent OO steam loco purchase. 5274 is the standard Hornby model, now fitted with a basic, non sound decoder. I'm pleased to say, both the O and OO gauges ran perfectly with no derailments or problems during a 2 hour running session. This is a short video, taken after my guests had gone. I have taken a leaf out of DorkingIan's book and just put some music to the footage, rather than the ambient sounds.
  9. The ballast has stood up well Mick. I would thoroughly recommend SBR for fixing ballast.
  10. The great thing about the Tilcon / Tarmac JGA' you have Mick, is that they dont need a load or the interior to be weathered!
  11. Lovely weathering Mick - particularly like 60007
  12. Mick There was less moisture in the air whilst I was running, as it was earlier in the day. Each of the locos had a spin on the wheel cleaner before starting and that helped no end. I'm not always very good at that part of the maintenance regime!
  13. Some nice weather yesterday allowed a bit of running and filming. Im just starting to do some "meet the fleet" videos featuring my OO gauge locos. Yesterday I managed to get the 31's and 37's done. Here is the 37 video.
  14. If you notice, the squeaky axles disappear half way through, thanks to a liberal application of gear lube - not the best oil for the job, but its nice and thick and seemed to work wonders. Odd isn't it? that it only seems to be Bachmann axleboxes that need constant lubrication.
