  1. Good morning Andy. I appear to have been blocked from posting on the "Things that make you smile" page. I have no idea why; I haven't posted anything which contravenes the rules. Would you please be so kind as to reinstate my access. Many thanks.

  2. Andy,


    Apparently I can't PM you - could you (or another admin) PM me as I have a question to ask you?

      try messaging @AY Modinstead



  3. Hello Andy.

    I'm sorry to trouble you, but am new to the site, (joined in November last year). For some reason the "Reply to this topic" options are no longer available to me on the forum jokes page. It is available in all other topics on the web site. I have been seeking advice from other users under the "Things that make you smile" section, (on the assumption that like minded people would be using both sections), and have been advised to contact you this way for assistance. Thanks in advance.

      As posted in that topic...


      If you'd read and abided by what's in the red bar I wouldn't have removed access to post in the topic - many posts were getting reported by other users as inappropriate.

      In what way were they inappropriate? They were no worse than others I have read on here.

  4. Hi Andy, I am not sure where I should ask you this question so I have posted on the relevant thread and am also attempting to contact you here. Please forgive me if either of these or both are inappropriate.


    I am attempting to collate a number of images of the Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway which have been shared with me by a variety of people and while reviewing them, I searched RMweb for any supporting information and came across the thread you started about the Smithfield Dual-gauge siding adjacent to the old cattle market in Welshpool. I was wondering whether you might be happy for me to include the photograph which you show at the start of the thread in a blog which follows up my first article about the Town Section of the W&LLR?


    Kind regards

      No problem at all Roger, thanks for taking the time to ask.

  5. Andy, I have bump this topic 2/2  on my content. Can you explain what it means please. Thanks Anthony Ashley 

  6. Good Afternoon.

    I'm sorry to trouble you, as I am sure I have seen other posts about this subject.

    On the 12th October I did try to sign up for Gold membership: partly to support the site and partly because I understood that this might limit the amount of advertising 'pop-ups' that appear on my screen.


    The transaction for £5.99 does show on my card statement for 12th October, but as yet nothing has changed when I sign-in to RMWeb.

    I can't find any reference to Gold membership.


    I apologise if I have done something incorrectly, and thus added to your workload!


    Yours Sincerely

      That's come through as a public message rather than a private one but no problem. You may need to sign in with your WoR+ details on this page - https://www.world-of-railways.co.uk/account/login?ref=%2Fmy-account%2Fmy-membership%2F - it should then tie up your account with your access here and put you in the Gold group and you should no longer see the adverts. Hope that works!

  7. Hi Andy


    I tried to put a two minute video of my Haymarket layout on RMWeb last night taken on my IPhone but it kept getting rejected as it was over the 10meg limit.


    I see from other threads videos of up to 30 minutes.


    I cannot find a way to reduce my video file size.


    Do you have any suggestions on how I can insert a video clip on my Haymarket thread.







    1. AY Mod

      Lucky I found this - I'm @AY Mod now. Video content should be uploaded to YouTube first and then pasted into here. The system wouldn't cope with hundreds of video uploads!

      Hi Andy


      Many thanks for your advice, I will try to give that a go.





  8. Hi Andy,


    I'm probably being incredibly dumb here.  I need to send you a PM to seek permission to post info about a weathering course that I am organising, but I havn't needed to send a PM on RMWEB since it was updated to the newer version, and I can't work out how to PM you!  :scratchhead:


    If I click on any reference to you, such as in a post you made, I get to your profile.  On your profile page, I can see this topic that I can post to, but I can't for the life of me find a PM link.  I'm sure it will be blindingly obvious when you tell me, so please could you put me out of my misery?

      Thanks, that works!   Now I wonder how I was supposed to know that without a crystal ball?  :scratchhead:

    Hi Andy,


    You may have noticed I have a new project taking shape on DENT, rather than have two topics is it possible to rename 'DENT STATION' to 'DENT STATION with CHESTERGATE'.


    Please let me know mate, hope you and yours are doing okay in these difficult times.


    Best wishes,

      Hi Mike, all good here thanks chap! If you go to the first post in the topic and click on Edit you should be able to change it whenever you like. BTW, this came over as public message rather than a private one. ;)

      And to your ‘old’ account. :lol:

      @truffy - this one has probably arisen because I'd disabled PMs to the old account.  #theendlessbattle

  10. Hi Andy,

    Can you please advise me. It is now time to part company with my exhibition layout Glenfinnan, featured here on RMweb. Can I do that here, and if so where? 

    Regards, Bill.

      Hi Bill, it would be necessary to be an RMweb Gold member to use the Classifieds. You have sent this as a public message, not a private message and to my old account.

  11. Hi Andy,


    I have been trying since November  (paid year subscription at the time)  for RM Gold (rather than paper editions of BRM and for the benefits) ... Warners and Pocketmags initially did not realise until they checked back.  Jess has managed to get me to view previous editions of BRM but gold still does not come up.  Can you think of anything else that needs to be sorted please?  Many thanks.


    Cheers, Peter BB

      I've now enabled the Gold access for you on here Peter (no-one had notified me of your subscription). Please message me on my @AY Mod account if you need to get hold of me rather than this old login.

  12. I've had an itch for a long time. An itch to model a canal interchange shed; I'd initially looked at the still intact Chillington Wharf on the west side of the Stour Valley route from Wolverhampton High level. Photo by D.J.Norton I came across this picture in the steel terminal's office whilst I was given a tour of Chillington Wharf by staff showing pre-nationalisation activity with bolsters and opens with the sort of loads which would come from a rolling mill. This would have required a board depth greater than the space I wish to now place the scene in. Moving onwards; not a million miles away from the spot though was a similar interchange shed, built by the Midland Railway off the Wolverhampton to Walsall line tucked away behind the British Steel site which sits beneath the level of the junction just SE of Wolverhampton High level station. The shed disappeared in the 1950s when the land was acquired by the steelworks but it's not a ridiculous premise to see that shed last a few decades more in the shadow of an expanding works. The shed and basin are long gone now but the site can still be seen from the access road to the works here. Details are scant as it wasn't of conventional photographer's interest really, a couple of line drawings on a local history site including side elevations plus an end photo from Bob Yate's book shown in the introductory blog entry. The scene will not be a true recreation due to some compression needed, realignment to fit a workable space and the wish to give something with a little more operational interest.
  13. Well I do need somewhere for the ever-increasing fleet of "that's cute" purchases to stretch their little legs, this is true.
  14. Some people keep their diplomas, certificates and Oscars in the smallest room; I just make do with a small ever-revolving library. I'm sure I can't be the only one can I? Anyway, a shot of three books coming out of the reading room neatly summarise what this project will be about.
  15. It has, the content blocks are causing loading speed issues and it's being looked into. In the meantime the only solution is to do without.
