  1. That's looking exciting, Thomas. Once you have a complete circuit you'll be wanting to run some trains.
  2. An exciting day (part 3) We end with a couple of shots of Castle Class "Earl of St Germans" seen hauling a portion of a long distance express from the West:
  3. An exciting day (part 2) This was starting to look like a fantasy diesel gala: Then "Western Harrier" took to the road:
  4. An exciting day (part 1) The day, which was to feature the first visiting locomotives this year, began with a sort of "Escape from Suez" commemorative intermodal train with the Class 66 and the slowly lengthening rake of container flats: And then the first of our exciting visitors appeared: Of which there will be more anon.
  5. Here's the 5 minute video from that last running session: Spring Greens!
  6. It's looking fantastic, Thomas. Keep up the good work, and I hope all goes well with you.
  7. As has been pointed out before, the normal term used by railway modellers, in British English at least, is fiddle yard. But I doubt you can find such a specialised term in any dictionary.
  8. Spring Greens After a month of cold and then wet, our weather hasn't been great until very recently. So I needed to seize the moment in today's sunshine and decided it felt like a day for running Southern Region branch line trains, using the N Class and the BR Standard 2-6-4 tank. Here are some of my many photos.
  9. Mick, My friend Jannie in York just sent this photo, which looks rather like your layout so may have been taken on Skew Bridge:
  10. Great video, Mick. The layout has real atmosphere and all the details look just right. Who said you can't run full-length trains indoors (me perhaps!)? Nice to see all those EWS liveried 66s, and I love the way the signal aspect changes a few moments after the loco has passed it. Well done.
  11. Thomas and the snow Annie and Clarabel were delighted to see the snow, but Thomas wasn't so sure. "I don't think we'll be able to get out of the carriage sidings" he said. Even when they turned round to face the other way, the enormous depth of snow defeated them: "If we try to move from here, we'll just get stuck!" said Thomas. Annie and Clarabel were very sad. "Isn't there anything you can do, Thomas?" they said. So Thomas jumped everyone across to another track, but still the snow was too deep to risk.
  12. It's looking good, Tony. I like the way you're using those curved points - they look very effective. But I suppose with the points there on the curve, you can't really do any banking of the track. Keep the pictures coming!
