Just listening to the "four tops" "suger bye honey" its on a great radio CBC show by "Randy Bachman" I am disapointed that the first loco is not being highlighted further. Shucks I was looking forward to a scene with the first loco and now some woodsy scene! :twisted: :roll: :wink:

I must admit that the early sixties music sets me off, must be my lot in life. :roll: :wink:

Ian I used to live next door to that guy, tin foil and all.

We listen to Randy B most saturdays, his St. Patricks show was great, Celtic traditional to the Undertones.

I'm off work today with a bit of flu, so I took the opportunity to get some fresh air, and wouldn't you know it, Dave was busy moving some loads down the line...

The finish on these models has been changed a bit, I shaded and highlighted them more, I'm not sure if that was the right thing to do, but under normal room lighting they looked really flat. The base is just a little static display I made up to have a go at some scenery. Burying code 80 track without fouling up the flanges is tricky. Might have to have a rethink about that..

Take care
Ian.

:D Just love your work - for what its worth, in my opinion your extra "shading,etc" has really paid off :D .

These pictures really do sum up that overused phrase of "character" - going out tomorrow to purchase some photo paper so that I can print these pictures off .

Thanks - any more??

This really is quite brilliant, great textures and atmosphere :D I can imagine such a system in real life, which just shows how convincing it is!

A treat to see your work as always Ian. They do look completely different outside, looks good in the sunshine :) and I like the setting very much. One of these days you will have to build a layout :wink:

Well, my insomnia has seen me scouring the internet for railway related bits and pieces and not to move this off topic but I think I've found a prototype for your timber carrying trains Ian http://www.audlin.co.uk/timber.html :P

Great find Simon 8) Very timely too as I am just about to start the scenic work on my own Gnine layout. Some of the photos on the other site pages will provide a useful reference :D

Thanks so much Simon, I was inspired by Black Hall Sidings to try some greenery. Sadly mine doesn't actually run... And what a great link Simon M., I've often thought of something similar that could be used to move material on treework job sites, that could be moved from job to job. Hollow rail would definitely make it more practical! The terrain around here would require a cog rail in the middle though... Steve, where did you find the photo? David must have snuck one while I was perusing the rest of the sights at the show.

Take care, Ian

:oops: Sorry Ian, I didnt keep the link :oops:
I think the only other pic that took my interest was your snowplough, the rest was On30/On3 and 1:20 scale stuff.

Interesting you should say that, when searching 'minimum gauge' in google I came across a presentation clearly designed as a way to advertise just such a system quoting the benefits as a lower level of earth compaction and a spreading of the load over a great area reducing damage done to the forest floor.

Also to say the ground cover on the diorama is fantastic, you notice it more in the aerial view where the wagons and loco stole the limelight in the shots you posted.

I really like these models 8) They ooze so much character. I can learn alot from just observing the painting alone 8) The ariel shot offers an unique perspective. The loco gives me pleanty of inspiration for some of my future critters.
Little old lines to somewhere.

Wow! Your little loco and flatcars are beautiful pieces of modelmaking.

I did not need to see that link for the WLR though as it is far too encouraging to find reasons to lay some trackwork of my own in the garden.
