Re: Two Sister's Farm Saga

While checking everything over prior to the show I did a couple of jobs I have been meaning to do for some time. I have never liked the look of the driver in the green shunter so I used the dog as a sort of distraction. Now the shunter has a new driver and the little white dog has now taken up resid...

I will follow this thread with interest. The buildings definitely appeal to me. With a little work they could be made to look British I think.

I did a small local show recently with my regular helper Andy Knott who was in David Baily mode and took a few pictures.

Re: Two Sister's Farm Saga

Well that is it, I have been all through the thread and added as many of the missing photographs as I could find. It is back more or less as it was before the photos went AWOL, any mistakes put it down as another senior moment.
Now just the other three threads to do.

Re: Two Sister's Farm Saga

I have made a start re-doing all the photographs but it is taking much longer than I expected it to. In fact it means updating four different sites all done at different times. Still I'm getting there slowly all the most recent on all four have now been done. The older pictures are taking longer to ...

Re: Two Sister's Farm Saga

Thanks for that Mick, I too have all my original photos on a hard disc, on cd’s and a memory stick. It just means uploading everything again then posting it all on four different sites.
Personally I get on alright with Flickr so am staying with it.

Re: Two Sister's Farm Saga

It seems the site that I uploaded my photographs on postimage.org is currently not working, so all my images have gone. I have had my suspicions for some time and recently started using Flickr instead. This is the third time this has happened to me and if Flickr folds up I will not be posting any mo...

A couple of films well worth a look.

I have found a couple of videos, that are not railway related but worth a look. They feature the river Thames which I remember as a young lad with much affection. The river was so busy in those far off days with tugs and lighters and larger ships down river in the dock area. I was fascinated by the ...

A film worth a look

Peter M

Here is something I have just happened upon and well worth a look.

Ffestiniog Railway Quirks and Curiosities II on you tube

Some of the devices featured would not look out of place down on the farm.

Re: Two Sister's Farm Saga

Thanks for the link Southpier, I have found out a little more about the device from a later book on the potato railways of Lincolnshire. It says in the caption that a petrol engine device collects produce from the fields. The device was actually powered by steam using a flash steam boiler. It was ma...

Re: Two Sister's Farm Saga

Sorry about that Chris, a senior moment I think. It's a you tube film.

Try Huntleyarchives.co then Film 11911 in the search. It should then work.

Re: Two Sister's Farm Saga

narrow gauge railways 1930's film 11911


This excellent little film was posted on another forum and is well worth a look.
It gives a real flavour of what actually went on on one of the larger farms.

I am pleased to say that I am once more back on the web. I have got rid of the BT special deal, about £40 pounds plus per month for 12gb per month, this includes the line charge and then it was only working 50% of the time. Now I am with Vodaphone which is high speed unlimited, with no line charge a...

Re: 1/32 scale

Kevin,
I have never sold a layout, because I'm pretty sure I would regret it.
All my old HO layouts have been broken up, the buildings and rolling stock kept but the rest went to the tip.

Lovely scale to work in 1/32, I'm surprised more people don't.

Re: Two Sister's Farm Saga

DCR fan,

You are right of course there should just be holes were the studs came through.
The layout has been exhibited over sixty times and had thousands of hits on this site, but you are the only one to notice this.
Sadly there is no prize for pointing out my mistake.
