Page loadings are a bit slow (10-20 secs) but that system is obviously under far more pressure than usual. Please be patient, the pages will eventually load.

Jamie Warne was 'feline' interrupted when he was trying to do a video for us which will be shown tomorrow afternoon.

I'm up to 12 on spot the difference and my best guess, for the weight, is 742 tonnes - in full scale!

 

Luv'in it...

Kev.

Yeah, that's clever Andy - ask for feedback in a closed topic. :biggrin_mini2:

 

Now moved so it can be replied to.

 

Glad I wasn't missing something!

 

A very nice selection of content, and it's handy to be able to access it at whatever time and in whatever order. The layout interviews and demonstrator videos in particular are great -- thanks to all for organising it. :happy_mini:

Thoroughly enjoying the layouts and the highlight so far is Phil’s interview with Tim Dunn. Great series on tv and his massive enthusiasm without having to play it daft for questions, very well pitched. I do hope there’s another series but one thing you missed! What’s the story behind the superb large scale HST behind him, is it one of the old promo models or a recreation? :)

Thanks so much to all of you at BRM for putting it on; there's been a huge amount of work behind the scenes for all involved. I've also spent the best part of a week getting stuff ready, filming, and editing (I'm still editing the last video as we speak, which I hope to be ready by tomorrow morning!). That's not to say I haven't enjoyed it, and it's genuinely been really fun to be a part of; just as it was for the virtual SWAG do. And if anyone has any questions to direct at me about any of my videos from the event, please do so!

From the little I've had time to see, it looks like a fantastic show, and well laid out on the website, by the way. My only worry is that I'll miss a lot of the content, so my question is this (and apologies if it's been mentioned somewhere):

 

Will this be available on the WoR website for a while after the weekend?

Really enjoying the layouts so far, just watched Phil’s interview with Tim Dunn which I thought was really good and just shows how good a program can be when its done by someone with massive enthusiasm for the subject.

 

I don't know if it was just me, but has Phil's lockdown haircut started to go full Mohican!!

It was probably the day he did static grass on his project build.

It's a promo model from travel agents. We had a bit of a chat about these before the interview as I own 2 APT promo models. Both of us appeared to have curated the shelves in shot with special trains.

He’s probably doing his own like me, 5 mins trimming it thinking you’re done, then half an hour trimming off the tufts because you look like the spawn of a demonic squirrel . . .

Thanks Phil, I noticed the same locos appearing behind you in both your slots ;) 

Another spot the difference opportunity :lol:
