  1. 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!
  2. "Class 66 Heaven" The real-life version of that GBRF 66701 shot on the DGR makes a couple of appearances in Josh Barker's other new video which is well worth a look, here:
  3. New Video Tony has just mentioned a Class 66 in GBRF livery, and I hope his project runs smoothly for a Happy New Year! By fortunate coincidence, a very similar loco appears in this new video. It's my favourite Christmas present, and comes from Josh Barker who has just put together some excellent material from his visit to the DGR in August 2018 featuring British steam and modern image and German modern image trains.
  4. But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight, HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD-NIGHT!
  5. Remembering what it's all about Fun in the summer sunshine: and a very Happy Christmas to all our visitors and contributors to this site!
  6. Isle of Man Railway 1967 & '68 This week I used some of my old colour slides for a Zoom presentation to the Dorking branch of the Locomotive Club of Great Britain, so I thought it might be worth slipping a few in here too. Douglas station, with "Hutchinson" and "Maitland" "Maitland" arrives at Douglas with a train from Peel "Hutchinson" approaching St Johns with a train from Douglas "G.H. Wood" crossing Glen Mooar viaduct with a train for Ramsey "Hutchinson" at Ballavolley Halt
  7. There are five pairs of intermodal wagons now. A sixth would help, and allow a few prototypical gaps without containers.
  8. Autumnal Interlude Having waited a while for some decent weather, I decided to go for a running session today despite it being overcast, in order to get some autumn leaves photos. Polishing up the track seemed to take a bit longer than normal, as it hadn't been used for such a long time. The new Class 66 was keen to have another stretch of her legs, and there was a new intermodal wagon to add to the rake. I hope the pictures convey that autumn feeling (and yes, it was a bit cold). A video may be along later.
