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

Money sent Tom.

As long as you're OK to keep the dirty oily bits of the Gnatterbox going I'm happy to chip in.

Re: Stockers' line: the Pell Wall Agricultural Tramway

In the time that has drifted past while rail laying took a break the paddock has been reseeded as a wild flower meadow and the fence and gate between paddock and garden removed. The garden has also been redeveloped to have as many bee and insect friendly plants and shrubs as possible. So rather than...

Re: Stockers' line: the Pell Wall Agricultural Tramway

Things are stirring once more on the track laying front. I hope to (finally) report that Phase 1, i.e. the track plan previously posted, will be complete by no later than the end of March. How’s that for sticking the Stockers neck out? On top of that the presses are whirring in an attempt to get up ...

Re: Christmas at Cordale

Hi Paul, The Stockers is often wrong, SWMBO is not slow to keep him informed when such situations arise... :D I have to admit to be a little disappointed, but I still have a suspicion that the good burghers of the village are not as ‘good’ as the latest scene depicts. (And a very nice scene it is to...

Re: Christmas at Cordale

Lovely. But hold on - with the exception of a couple of passengers (who look to be far too upright citizens to me) everyone else, including the driver, seem to be 'off stage' somewhere. My guess is that if we had sound we'd hear chatter, laughter and the clinking of glasses. Yes, the local hostelry ...

Re: Estate Elongate

Hi Bill,

I’ve just popped back to the top of the thread and read it all through again. It’s all coming together very well.

Every time I read the word Rotaverser it makes me grin - both inspirational and amusing in one package, what more can one ask? :D

Imaginary prototype

I wondered where to post for a moment or two before deciding this chunk of the Gnatterbox was probably a reasonable spot. In recent years I have become rather fond of Peter Barnfield’s Whimshire drawings. Alas, he shuffled off this mortal coil last year. You can see more about them here: https://www...

Mike Decker, who did the drawings for the book, says the latest info he has is that it goes to the printers at the beginning of November.

Unless I’ve missed it, I don’t think you’ve said what size these new and old chunks are, do say please.

Yeah, looking at Dieselwater’s profile the last time he signed in was May 2015. Those years sure go quickly.

Re: 1/12 scale loco

Hi Kevin,

I think I've sorted your over abundance of pics. :D

The loco looks very nice. Hoping you consider this is a complement but it looks very much in the style of Dieselwater's machines to me.
