Re: It's time to pay our hosting bill again

Geoff, To use Paypal you use the ‘email’ given as the recipient for the payment once you’ve signed in there. Trev Donations are, of course, any amount you you feel comfortable with. I’m extremely fond of the Gnatterbox so I pop in £20. I’d not expect you do to the same, but it’s your call. I’m sure ...

Hi Tom, Happy New Year. Money sent! :D I too prefer the ease of accessing threads in this forum format to Facebook where it can be done but is much trickier. Alas the world is leaning FB way - and me with it for my Minimal group, see the link in my signature. The advantage with FB is that it's both ...

Re: The Cordale Hall Railway

Hi Paul,

All coming along nicely.

Useful to have that note that the backscene is 15” high, I’m a fiend for dimensions (yes, I know you’ve mentioned the baseboard size too) as I think a measurement or two always helps build a better mental image of what we’re looking at.

Cheers,

Re: TrainsOnArran

Paul,

Re ‘new user’ I’ll have a ponder. As you probably know Tom, aka Tebee, as the guy running the dirty oily bits, he is the only chap who can let people in as the beastly spammers are hitched to the standard way in.

Clearly we need to make it easier...

Alas, with the loss of kit producer Steve Bennett for personal reasons and others RIP or off trying yet more scale/gauge combos we are not as busy in here as back in the heady days around 2005 or so.

It was great to finally meet Bill yesterday (thanks for the chat). I'd throw in a pic or two but as the layout has developed with plenty of views I don't really think I could beat anything Bill has already dropped into this thread. :D

Re: A New Foreign Layout

Looking very smart.

A nice light, bright venue too. All too often it’s somewhere with just electric light, perhaps a litte gloomy, and thus not great for photography here in the UK.

Re: Two Sister's Farm Saga

Hi Peter, Please don’t stop posting pics. You can add them direct to any Gnatterbox post (including editing previous posts with Flickr links) at no cost to you. I’d suggest keeping the size down to 500k or less though please to help ensure they load fairly quickly for the rest of us to enjoy. Cheers,

Re: Making a Brake for it

Hi Ron,

On downloading the photo so that I can see it that much larger (I'm blessed with a 30" screen) it's lovely to see the detail such as the underseat 'cupboard' with proper hinges and handle.

Hi Don,

Looking back I see your first post says

‘Two locos to manage six wagons is definitely one too many. ’

I don’t know how many wagons you have now but there seems to be no shortage of locos. :D

Re: A New Foreign Layout

Hi Gavin, Glanced at your post and the last couple or so before it thinking, ‘Hmm, don’t remember this.’ Only then did I look back and realised it all began ten years ago. So I’ve forgiven myself. Always like this sort of thing, a point or two, some nice detail and a view blocker. Charming. Cheers,

Hi again Pete, Just popped over to Flickr to see the models. That loco is certainly different. I suspect it says more about me than the modelling but I instantly thought, ‘Flash Gordon’ :D The great thing, to my mind, about any narrow gauge is that is quite believable to imagine that ‘this is what w...

Hi Pete, Before I forget, welcome! I'm not sure how many folk model in Gn15 these days, but sad to say this forum, which I have had the honour to moderate these last several years (I model in larger scales but love pretty much anything related to Heywood's 'minimum'), is very quiet nowadays.
