  1. Who would have thought that India Pale Ale would work like that? 😉
  2. Tramway points are very much shorter in the moving rails as well. Railway points are really not prototypical for a tramway.
  3. No. The felt needs securing properly. Track pins will not stop it from moving with extremes of temperature, or even lifting in a wind and ripping the track out with it.
  4. You will not get booted off Mark. What you could do, is use the OO track as a narrow gauge industrial feeder line to the main line. Something like that anyway.
  5. Great to hear from you again. I have been wondering where you had got to. Good luck getting home, we are living in very strange times. Stay safe Mark and don't be a stranger.

    Why don't you just buy decking boards like so many have done? That will do a double track. You need more than that on bends and stations and any yards. This is why you have to have a plan to work to. I can't start buying materials for anything until I know what I want at the end. Your best place to sart is to read, read, and read again, until you know what you want.
  7. You must have used internal blocks. External grade blocks will take all weathers without degrading.
  8. They should stay home and support this. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/greatbritishcampout?fbclid=IwAR1ZDqM4hic0qlsW4qguOvxImOkJSOlgO4zNmKwCd6GJrwa0Z1sKDda9bqc If you have neighbours camping in their gardens, or staying in campervans on their drives, this is what it's all about. Imaginary going away, paying £2 per night as a pitch fee, and all having a great time.

    Stay safe

    I have tried all sorts of cameras over the years and never really got on with any of them. A month or so ago, I bought this Panasonic FZ82 Bridge Camera with a 60xzoom. Suddenly I can get far far away, and very close up too. Now we are not allowed out!
  10. We are living in strange times. It was a Supermoon last night, and I managed to get a photo. Not bad for hand held. Wherever you are in the world, the same moon is looking down on you. Stay safe please.
  11. I live about ten miles from those bridges Tony. The Swing Bridge is being filmed from what is known as the High Level bridge. It has a lower roadway and upper rail deck. Looking past the Swing Bridge, you see first the Tyne Bridge, and in the distance The Millenium bridge which when it opens is like a blinking eye.
  12. Never mind the photos Tony, the Swing Bridge is permanently manned and does swing. Still fully operational despite the lack of big river traffic that used to be the River Tyne.
  13. Have a look at th swing bridge in Newcastle. Seagoing ships used to pass through here. There are lots of photos on Google. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Newcastle+upon+Tyne/@54.9673077,-1.6073544,237m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x487d857e0c6f64cd:0xbe252b072a76191!8m2!3d54.978252!4d-1.61778
