  1. South Western Railways have officially confirmed on twitter
  2. Hi. It’s unusual to see many trains on the Welsh Highland Railway, normally one or two passenger trains a day. It was nice therefore to see a more intensive and varied timetable run yesterday with both the K1 and NGG16 Garratts in actions on both passenger & freight trains. I have collated a couple of videos which may be of interest. Firstly filmed at Rhyd Ddu and Waunfawr And secondly (from a slightly different perspective !) footage take at Caernarfon and along the route towards Dinas Thoughts and feedback appreciated?
  3. A couple of shots a Mursley yesterday. Not much change with the bridge although the large pipe to the left has now been buried Looking into the distance, materials have now appeared to improve the drainage as has been mentioned before
  4. A shot taken yesterday at Winslow at the site of the new station which is to be built
  5. I agree. Dapol have put up a head on shot on twitter here:
  6. Photos of the first EP are now on the Dapol website https://www.Dapol.co.uk/O-Gauge-Class-66-Engineering-Prototype-Under-Review
  7. Interesting, looking forward to seeing progress. What I like especially is that the track isn't parallel with the board edges
  8. Catching the train at Settle. Smart inside and out
  9. A couple more pictures taken today. Firstly showing the new bridge near Mursley with the walls now looking complete. Secondly a shot showing work on a pipeline behind one of the wall and which will be under the re-routed road once complete
  10. The 16mm association Garden Railway Show is going ahead at Peterborough this Saturday which must be one of the first shows to be put on? Although primarily for the benefit of members, and for the AGM, it is open to all although Tickets are limited and must be purchased in advance. Details here: https://www.nationalgardenrailwayshow.org.uk/2021-show/
  11. A picture showing progress on the new Salden Lane bridge near Mursley. Looks like it would be fit to carry a motorway despite the lane only seeing the odd vehicle and horse each day!
  12. If they are iPhone clips have you tried using iMovie software. It is provided free on iPhones although I think versions on ipads and macs have a few more features. Very easy and quick to use
  13. Another cycle ride out today. Firstly the Station Road bridge near Mursley showing the new brickwork thats been completed Next the site of the new station to be built at Winslow Next one of the bridges carrying the railway over Verney Road west of Winslow And finally at Verney Junction looking west
  14. A couple of pictures I took today while out on the bike. The rather characterful old bridge is on Salden Lane near Mursley. Looks like they are building a new bridge judging by the ground works and new foundations?
  15. Although it could have perhaps been more tactfully phased, the point is that buyers were giving their money to someone totally unknown in another country. That raised questions about what rights buyers therefore have and what protections there are if something had gone wrong It does seem a shame that this happens every few weeks, KRModels making an ill judged comment which causes arguments and animosity.
  16. Great news, will put some dates in the diary. The other 40 years thread, with photos of how its developed, has certainly piqued my interest
  17. Bachmann changed at the beginning of 2020 to making quarterly announcements saying “ the new products featured will all be released within three months of announcement.” - so not ages away http://news.Bachmann.co.uk/2020/01/a-new-era-dawns-for-Bachmann-europe/
  18. First hand experience at work is that the date of payment is not considered, all that seems to matter is the date an item is exported and crosses the border The third story on this BBC new item today is an example of someone receiving a gift after 1/1/21 because it was delayed and incurring charges https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-55752541
  19. In the US Bachmann are having a Thomas and Friends virtual event on 18th Feb with updates and announcements as confirmed here Of interest as Bachmann have now started to introduce the OO range in the UK
  20. Looks like this weeks new episode in Kenya was quite exciting to make! https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-9007881/Chris-Tarrant-reveals-thrown-prison-cell-Kenya.html
  21. Is it possible it’s the controller overheating and cutting out (and there’s nothing wrong with the loco) While you checked the loco, the controller could have then cooled down so that it worked again only to overheat again and cut after running the loco again for 30 to 60 secs Have had the same thing happen with large G scale locos when tested with a train set controller (because I couldn’t be bothered to get a more powerful one out!)
  22. I was trying my best to ignore the photo behind his shoulder? That would be interesting, and difficult to resist if it were made
  23. Yes! Really enjoyable and loving the variety of articles and layouts etc
