  1. Thinking of how theatrical smoke machines work it would be more effective to have a heated chamber under the chimney and a separate reservoir for the fluid with a small pump (it only needs to deliver tiny amounts of fluid at a time) if the chamber is hot enough then the fluid should vaporise very rapidly giving a good blast from the chimney, and the pump could be driven to deliver a stream of tiny amounts of fluid to create puffs of smoke at different rates.

  2. Amazing work, really impressed to see this and not quite sure how I'd missed it! Are you going to model the traffic lights on the junction end bridge? Gave me a hell of a scare one night, coming up from Otford I'd had greens all the way and then saw the red of the traffic light on the bridge in the dark. Emergency brake application until the green signal came into view! Edit, they aren't on the bridge, but on the road next to the line and it's a pelican crossing https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@51.3943545,0.1760958,3a,75y,286.25h,92.24t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sWXtZng9vL2QAroIJjC4tlg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en Andi

  6. It seems that some IC versions have the white light surrounds while others have yellow. (Mine has yellow) Does anyone have a photo of a 90 in IC with yellow light surrounds? Andi
  7. The last line of the article makes clear that masculinity can be explored in many ways, one being our railways "If there is something positive to be taken from the Market Deeping disaster, it might be a chance to look at the world of modellers not merely as a bunch of sad anoraks, but a space in which masculinity and mental health can be positively explored, a novel and creative form of #selfcare."

  8. I feel for those who had exhibits in the untouched hall too, they must be going through a whole range of emotions. Andi
  9. Pictures in the local paper show layouts pushed over, heartbreaking for the exhibitors. I have no words. Andi
  10. You’ll have to wait a bit longer, I haven’t finished it yet. Andi

  12. Ooops, over a year since I last posted on this thread. The layout is still being worked on, albeit very slowly. I'm suffering a really debilitating bout of depression at the moment so I'm struggling to find any enthusiasm for doing anything at all. Hopefully as the days get longer and my treatment progresses then work on the layout will resume properly. Andi
  13. Nothing wrong with Llandudno, I've just come back from a long weekend there with some band. Only trouble is that a lot of my friends who were there seem to have gone down with the Llurgy, hoping I don't! Badge
