  1. HST is on the Up Westbury avoiding line, taken from the bridge that carries a footpath and the Westbury to Warminster line, over the avoider - the area is known as Penleigh. Unfortunately, the footpath (which used to run from near the entrance to the new sidings in the down yard to Penleigh) was cut off by EWS a few years ago. A new housing estate is now in build to the left of the HST - I wonder how long it will take for residents to start complaining about the round the clock noise from the yard?
  2. In less than ideal photographic conditions, 50049 waits for 50007 to runround from the rear, at Ayr. The train had to top and tail to Stranraer, due to the limited length of the runround these days at Stranraer and due to the signalbox, supposedly, being switched out.
  3. A limited turnaround (due to late running) meant I didnt get a front 3/4 view of 50049 at Stranraer.
  4. To bring this thread right upto date. A few shots of the Galloway Fifties railtour of Saturday 11th September 2021. The first couple are of Stranraer and the last is at Ayr. Due to file size, spread over 3 replies.
  5. Those who have purchased the version 5637, have you paid a small premium and is there any mention of a donation, from the sale of the loco, being made to the 5637 loco group?
  6. Perhaps it would be better if all locos came unnumbered, as Heljan used to. Some might say it would give the manufacturers a bit more time to get the liveries spot on.
  7. Parts 2 and 3 of my July series are now available to view. Part 2 features new stock in the shape of the Cavalex Warflat wagons.
  8. I couldnt find any box opening videos so did one myself - it be useful to someone.
  9. In case anyone else is as foolish as I, dont let Humbrol acrylic varnish anywhere near these - Ive just frosted both of mine Oh well, I really wanted to repaint all the decking planks
  10. During the excellent weather we have enjoyed during the start of June, I set about making a series of garden railway videos, in which, I am going to try and run every piece of stock I have. We are 3 videos in and Ive barely scratched the surface! Lets hope this wet weather passes us by fairly quickly, so I can get back outside and do some more running.
  11. Wednesday 9th June 2021 66622 and co approach Westbury with 6C68 for Whatley Quarry. All 3 locos were under power.
  12. From todays test run - approaching Westbury
