Re: Thank you, Photobucket !!!

Re: Layout names

There are probably enough interesting names without inventions but if you use a real name someone (rivet counter) is bound to know the place and say that it never had a railway or your model is not correct.

They look like they could be useful but I'm not sure that they are right for 1910.

Then you need a little bit of wiring and a few relays to control the railway:

Photo hosting?

Are we still OK to use http://my.gn15.info/ for hosting photos to use on here? I have a vague recollection of Tom (Tebee) requesting that we stop using it in order to keep the bandwidth down. From a practical point of view "in house" storage should avoid Pbucket type issues but it is no go...

Re: Thank you, Photobucket !!!

This is rather worrying, I currently use Flickr but I wonder how long it will be before they do the same.

Hopefully Steve's and Gerry's photos are on the my.gn15.info/ site.

Photobucket's action must have had an impact on a very large number of sites

Re: a plea to all GnAtters

i dunno ..... you guys aren't really trying too hard. it is expected the figures of any range will need a bit of miliput and lead foil, but the starting point is what could use a bit of variety: http://www.seltd.net/ez-catalog/X344897/17?item_count=0;order_by= http://www.larrygscale.com/Figurines_c...

Re: a plea to all GnAtters

As Geoff has said there is not a lot of choice of good quality 1/24th figures but you can get some variety with a bit of head swapping. There are some horrible Chinese produced figures available, these are some: https://c1.staticflickr.com/8/7420/26806396700_951d36eb70_c.jpg Alarming modern passenge...
