  1. They're about 250 Km apart. Not far by UK standards, but a long way in little Denmark
  2. Period captions, that's a first! Lovely structure. The building's pretty neat too
  3. The Huntley & Palmer shot is quite convincing. Although of course that can be dangerously misleading! I have been trying out some other free sites that claim to do the same, but yours are much better.
  4. Nice to see the old Finecast Metro again. Or the box at least! This adds a whole new dimension to the philosophical discussion of the fisherman's knife/old broom: If you replace all the parts and then use the replaced parts to make a second identical object, then which is which and what is still the same? I need to lie down
  5. Kevin Robertson (who else) and Roger Simmonds can help us here, with the following quote in their superb The Lambourn Branch (Wild Swan 1984 p. 108, not to be confused with later publications by Robertson on the same branch): "Being in a prime agricultural area, a considerable amount of general farm produce was also sent from the station, hay and straw accounting for a large proportion of this. Some was destined for the GWR's own provender store at Didcot, although most went for sale at market. There was also some inward traffic of this nature, some of the local trainers purchasing
  6. A detail crop from a photo of Lambourn station in 1898. This was before the GWR take-over. At this point the LVR's wagons were LVR owned second-hand GWR GER and Metropolitan stock. Four sheeted hay/fodder wagons, though I can't make out what it says on them. Perhaps destined for the GWR provender store at Didcot, as per the discussion above. The GWR sheet used on the heavily loaded cart is a bit puzzling, as I doubt the GWR would have a cart here at this time. But what the GWR don't know doesn't hurt them, I suppose
  7. Thanks Al, that's good news if Wills have gone over to a more "workable" plastic. I wonder if that applies to the whole range, must try it out next time I'm putting in an order.

    That sounds like the usual quickie project that turned out to be more complicated than planned Kudos for sticking with it, Ian. Very nice result. Regarding the load, I am reliably informed that Sir Francis Wobblewhite of Modbury was so fond of his bathing machine that he brought it with him by rail whenever he travelled to the sea.
  9. Yes, wonderful scenes. The "sleepy" view with the track coming out of the goods shed is my favourite. The undulating (not ululating, that would be odd) setts are very nicely captured, hadn't noticed that before. How were the setts made Al - I can't recall if you've explained that?
  10. Thanks Linny, good to know. I have a couple of wagons I can try it on. Good to know that the water can be too hot!
  11. Very nice. Out of interest, does the hot water method work for straightening out 3D printed wagons, do you think - or would that be a Very Bad Idea?
  12. Thanks Grahame, I looked up the Leakey Lee, looks to be a serious tool. Apparently there was a "double" version. I agree about odd-numbered laminations.
