Do I tell him now or leave it until he visits the ranch that I watch the videos with the sound turned off. I do enjoy them just the same.

He knows … as he is well acquainted with Sheffield.

It's all looking rather splendid Andy, I'd like a few of the pictures but I am getting error messages.

Thanks Lez, and some Ducks. 

 

Some inquisitive ones after I quacked our Dogs squeaky Duck out of the window when on holiday a couple of weeks back.

Very strange, that's the same as I was getting on Rob's Sheep Chronical's.

It looks more like a Duck-billed-platypus.  An Aussie mammal that has webbed feet like a frog, a bill like a duck, it lays eggs like a bird has claws like a cat and produces venom like a snake.

Oh the joys of Railway modelling.   :offtopic:

I've also made up a Track Diagram for when I have visitors.

I like your switch bank, I think I'll check them out as they look very neat and tidy.

Ref your track diagram I use car lining tape about 3mm wide put onto a 2mm white plastic sheet.

It sticks down, is easy to cut/trim with a blade in position and you get umpteen feet of it on a roll so will do for may diagrams.  You can also get it in different colours but I only use black.

 

:drinks:

Cheers

Thanks Barnaby, I used to use Dyno Tape, but I've run out, so need to have a look for some more or the Car lining Tape you suggested.

 

Cheers

I'm sorry Andy, but your photoshopping skills aren't up to much, I can still see the horrible Splinter/bug unit thing!
