As suggested by St Enedoc, I've moved the 'Buckingham Branches by Bike' diversion to its own thread.

 

And ....... could someone please post a link too Castle Aching here, I seem to have accidentally scuppered my ability to access said thread.

I actually haven’t added much yet - a rising tide of domestic duties and paying work!

The words come from the opening post by Edwardian but the picture I am seeing looks very much like the legs of my portable 0 gauge layout and does not appear on the first page of the CA thread. Can anyone explain?

And there was me thinking that the Mystery Photograph showed a gathering of Norfolk Stilt Dancers.

 

BTW, wasn't there some trade in the wetter parts of Norfolk that actually used stilts ........ gathering thatching reed, or something like that? Or, did I make that up? 

 

I do know that hop-stringers in Kent used to use stilts.

I think the local builders merchant had some plasterers stilts for sale. It is hard enough plastering without trying to do it on stilts.

That's what people  need for operating eye-level exhibition layouts!

I just ran across this & thought some might enjoy.   Is this not what every kid would dream of for a Christmas train set ?   Wow.

I like the track level view around 4:35.   Love those old Marklin coaches, Impressive collection.

Where do you find 'em !?  You are going to get my thread locked.

 

I'm guessing that probably isn't a bona-fide Lionel advert, but its so like one that surely it must be by one of their commercial artists. 

 

I will refrain from indulging in lewd signal-post related banter, and concentrate instead on the one significant deficiency in the drawing, which shows that the artist really wasn't doing his job properly: he has omitted the conductor rails from the track.

 

The German film is wonderful, although I did suffer mild motion-sickness while watching some of it.

This is not a drawing of a Lionel train but an American Flyer S gauge train, which of course does not have a third rail. The signal tower and platform are typical Flyer (of course it is not easy to concentrate on the accessories ;)).

I stand corrected.

 

Does look a bit big for S, but, as you say .........

I thought the same, although perhaps she's just small but perfectly formed.

Yea,  too bad the quality of the filming didn't match the quality of the trains !    Although I'm building a "scale" railway I've often been tempted by the coarse scale offerings from ETS / ACE / WJ + etc..  + vintage pieces.  I keep saying to myself maybe just 1 wagon,  or 1 train,  but I know what will follow :D
