As soon as I see my Class 56 I fell in love with it and so parted with my money quicker than "er indoors" when she's in the jewellery shop.. I will prchaes the Heljan one when it shows up it'll just mean I might have to purchase a few more hoppers...

There must have been some contortions to get the shot from that side of the track!

Andy that 56 looks the bees knees. Any chance of a video so we can hear the sound.

 

Reminds me i have a second hand RJH kit to finish off. Well build really  since they only soldered a brass rail to the underside of the body sides! Someone once said the roof in htis kit is all wrong in terms of its radius but yours looks fine and I belevie its from the same pedigree as mine.

 

I doubt my kit will be as good as the forthconing Heljan which I have ordered and still wondering how to pay for!

Hi Paul, I may try another Video, but the last one minute eleven second one took almost 6 hours to up load to You Tube.

 

I have had a New Up graded Router but the Speed Test shows no improvement.

 

BUT I will try it.

Decided that my visiting these pages is not healthy - I feel an eviction of moths coming on - first the lovely Heljan 47 and then the cracking kit-built 56...sigh!!!!  Amazing work as always sir and what a find with 047!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder I guess but those pics sadly reminded me that my 47 is still hidden in the loft after I abandoned attempts to improve the cab. They will be significantly devalued when the new one arrives although that might motivate me to finish it!

I have used my phone before and if you have the You Tube app you can load straight into it in a very short period of time using your nomral log in details.. I beleive there  are also video editing tools on phones although I have never used them

 

The most recent ones I did on Black Notley were loaded that way without editing . They seem to be OK

Hi Paul, Thanks for the info, my phone is fairly basic, and makes phone calls etc, and I can see my G-Mail but that is about all it does as far as I know. 

I will give the camera bit a try, but I normally need to edit first for titles etc.

 

Cheers again for the idea though.

Just a few of the 66 photos I took today at DEMU, the ''OO'' ones will go in Kingsmill or Mason Street.

 

These are from the ''O'' Gauge Dalnottar Sidings.

Nice photo's Andy, dont blame you going back again, the O gauge layout looks great, it looks a lot like an Ian Futers layout albeit extended, do you know if that's the case?
