If it is the 0-4-4 based on a Fordson tractor the Dalesman published book on the Ratty has a 3/4 front elevation shot on page 83.

(I'm not an R&ER swot - just happened to have a copy of the book out on my desk waiting to be put away).

At MOMING on Saturday a layout featured in the recent Railway Modeller (Alder Carr ) was lit in a way I liked the look of so I asked what it was. He had used 4 DCC coach lighting LED strips. I liked it because it was an even light, looked like daylight on a typical British day and wasn't overly hars...

Unfortunately my Wolds Way set is temporarily off-line as Fotopic went belly up.

I will be putting them back up soon on my own web-space but web-site work is on hold for now due to having a college ITQ project to finish off and work on Pebbles End for MOMING.

Much larger radius but the 00/HO track Bachmann supplied with the Underground Ernie sets was complete with moulded ballast etc. It might be around second-hand.

So it was off with the legs


Oozlum or perhaps the one from the rugby song - that also has no legs, but then again the layout has no barbed wire fence!!!

(F) Track colour -- observation on variety

For the next step on Pebbles End I will be painting the rails and today I ploughed through a set of photos I took recently on a visit to Norden, Dorset (Swanage Rly/Purbeck Mining Museum). The visit was done to get a set of reference photos of what was in flower etc., in mid-June for getting the sce...

Thanks Simon (CK). The two I was thinking off were the one's in Weymouth & Dorchester.

I know the Briport store you mentioned so I will stop by and have a look next time we go over that way for the farm-shop shopping if the two nearer stores haven't got the items.

Thanks for that Simon. My two nearest Games Workshop outlets are just small concessions within a Toymaster store so might not stock those but I will have a look next time I'm across. If not there is either mail order or a wait until I'm in a town with a proper Games Workshop branch.

When I replace my fotopic albums (in the very near future) you will be welcome to use any of the prototype images of UK minimum gauge railways. I'll pm you when they are back up.

There's always the genuine minimum gauge lavender farming prototype at Wolds Way. If you want mechanical handling of bulk items a fictitious change to a line handling, spuds, sugar beet, perhaps even tulip bulbs wouldn't be stretching reality very far. With Wolds Way the prototype has actual view bl...

Thanks Steve.

Not expecting that aspect to differ, I hadn't noticed that the door position was varying depending on which side of the loco was being shown rather than by date of photo/livery!

A duh!! moment as obviously that would do it!

(F) R&ER Lady Wakefield - recabbed?

I've been browsing the net tonight looking at photos of the R&ER's Lady Wakefield. Has she been recabbed twice - i.e. three cab versions over time? Looking at the various photos the sliding door position seems to vary between the bonnet/hood end of the cab and the outer end. Consistently though ...
