  1. Sorry to hear about your father Scott, but thankfully you got to see him before he passed. Those photos you posted are an amazing keepsake to remember him by. Hope you are going ok in that other country state over there, though I think Qld and WA are now back on speaking terms. We won’t talk about NSW though, I think they hate both of us at the moment! Cheers Tony
  2. Lovely stuff with the West Riding Gilbert. What is the provenance of the restaurant twin if you don’t mind me asking? Was admiring Andy’s various twins on Gresley Junction. One day I hope to create the pre fire version. Cheers Tony
  3. Really been enjoying all of your posts Andy. I too wish there was a CWN for goods stock, but I’ve still got a ways to go on the passenger side to get anywhere near yours and Gilbert’s accuracy. I’m also very jealous of your West Riding formation, that is one I really do want to reproduce eventually, but those FO-FO twins on the front are rather difficult to get hold of. Keep up the great work. Cheers Tony
  4. ‘tis a nice portrait of No.7. Is it due for Timming soon? Those shots of Quicksilver show the marque of the master of weathering that’s for sure.
  5. That's us in Queensland, 1 hour and ten years behind the rest of the country!
  6. There may have been trains to a concrete batching plant used for constructing the power station, as large projects tend to have their own concrete making facilities, so perhaps a few Presflows every now and then, with some sand and gravel deliveries too. You could also run trains of spoil being removed from the area during construction, that happens quite a lot. Keep up the great work on the layout, it's looking good! Cheers Tony
  7. I do so much like a B1 portrait in the morning (well it is the morning here in the Antipodes...)
  8. Really enjoying the reminiscing. A bit like Graham I was only 2 at the end of steam in Queensland (Dec 1969), so don’t remember anything about the steam era, but can vividly recall standing on the platform when one of our first generation English Electric 1200 class (built in Bradford amazingly) hauling what was called the Exhibition set of slam door Evans Cars suburban coaches pulled in. The coaches which were normally a Tuscan Red colour, had been painted a dark Hawthorn Green for use on shuttle services to our City’s Showgrounds. I’ve loved the sounds of English Electric’s ever since (th
  9. Lovely series of shots John Always liked the quirkiness of the Dukedogs, and lovely shots of 9022 on Granby makes them even more special. I see Rapido are bringing out a 15xx Pannier. Now there is one Pannier I think I could get to like, Walschaerts valve gear and outside cylinders, lovely. I've driven a 5" gauge version, the design is known as Speedy by the famous lives steam designer and builder LBSC. They are a nicely proportioned loco but I know they weren't great travellers over the GWR so not sure if they would even be appropriate for Granby. Cheer
  10. They’re not MethFix perhaps Jesse? They fazed me the first time I used them, never encountered that type before how you had to peel them off the backing apparently first. cheers Tony
  11. Lovely job there Rob. I’ve built three LRM ones now in OO but to see the amount of detail you have in yours makes me want to build a 4th. They just convey a look of power in their brutish outline. The Gladiator etches look identical to the LRM ones, not a coincidence I suspect (sorry, am unfamiliar with 7mm kit producers)? Cheers Tony
  12. I’m not sure what you are doing differently Gilbert, but your recent pics are even more brilliant than previously. Perhaps the way you are cropping them, like that last one of Great Eastern, just looks sublime.
  13. Your hotel is coming along fantastically John, looks a real treat. Not sure if you’ve seen it, but I have recently been bitten by the GWR bug. Fortunately it was only a passing affliction...
  14. Certainly not taken for granted here Eric, I love the mundane. There’s always been too much focus on the glamorous workings, when the lifeblood of the railway was the regular, mundane runs that earned the revenue. Cheers Tony
  15. What a lovely evening I have had catching up on all things PN. I’ve been in a bit of low modelling mojo of late after finishing my last project, so coming back on here and going through several pages of goodness have got me all inspired again. Thanks Gilbert, for both your lovely layout and the excellent pictures you continue to put on here for all of us. Cheers Tony
