Re: Bilco's Bodgements #3

Hi Bill,

I think the current level of grot/grime etc. is perfectly fine.

A couple of pics from stuff I’ve collected off the internet over the years. Alas, that means I can’t give a credit to the photographers, so if they should look in, my apologies!

Re: Amalgamated Munitions and Particle Beam Weapons

Hi Les,

Our bit of Shropshire is pleasingly far from the madding crowd, so we’re doing quite nicely, thanks.

I hope to be able to report good progress on my 7 1/4" gauge garden line in the not too distant future.

Cheers,

Hi Les,

I’m not sure how I’ve managed to miss this little gem, but I’m a sucker for Particle Beam Weapons, so I’m glad to have caught up now. :D

That colour - wow! As in, wow!

It’s one of those pics you can still see seared on your eyeballs after you’ve closed your eyes! :D

Hi Bill,

I'm currently hiding from the sun, so it's great to be able to keep up with your work. Hopefully one day in the far, far, future I'll be able to see both layout and you at a show again. :D

Re: A film from my Gn15 layout "Walddestille"

Hi Michael,

Great video, great layout.

I've taken the liberty of moving your thread's location as it's about a Gn15 model rather than a 15" prototype.

Re: Crundells Estate

Hi Andy, Thanks for sharing/showing all that in one go. It’s scary how much space models can take up in boxes, your case idea works a treat. I’m a serial dabbler in 7/8ths and 1/12 scale mostly, with the consequent much larger volume per item. It also makes it much harder to conceal from SWMBO! Chee...

Re: Stockers' line: the Pell Wall Agricultural Tramway

The future (I hope!) I must update the track plan on the previous page as it lacks a siding that comes off the ‘main line’ in the garden towards the pond just before it goes into the paddock so that a complete train, or just a bit of rolling stock, can be held as other things come through. There’s a...

Re: The Cuddle Shale Oil Company Tramway.

Great to have you back Ian. I’m looking forward to the layout. It’s a shame that neither Andy nor Carl Arendt (I think it fascinated Carl as it’s a simple length of track, yet offers interesting working) are here to enjoy it with the rest of us.

Hi Ian,

I don’t think it ever got built. It was always Andy’s Eldorado, sought but never reached.

Re: new members

There’s been an issue with the email to moderators/admin function for an age now that I think has defeated Tom’s (Tebee) ability to fix.

Unfortunately he had to switch off the joining process as we were being hit by hundreds of spam applications.

Re: Good Wishes from a Resurected Lurker

Hi Simon, Welcome and congratulations on ‘uncloaking’. Lots of fun still to be had, but, as we are quiet these days in the Gnatterbox I’d be remiss if I didn’t also mention there is a group on Facebook majoring in Gn15, G9 and any minimal gauge activity in and scale or gauge you care to mention.

Great stuff David. St. Petrox is a delight. We regularly visit Pembrokeshire and have walked around the Stackpole estate several times. Once we were lucky enough to see an otter there.
