How long is the bridge going to be?

If it was me, I would be planning one about 10metres long. Think how many cakes I could justify eating then :P :lol:

Glen, You nailed the loco together :shock: Most of us use glue :wink: You should know whats it's like down the bottom of the world :!: Everything is upside down, and if you don't nail it all down, it just falls off and drifts out into space. I didn't want to risk just using glue :lol: :lol: Thanks ...

The Stamping Ground Gold Mine

Here is my first effort in Gn15. I found a model car kit on our local version of ebay, which was missing the car shell, so none of the model car people wanted it. But it still had the motor, (plus a lot of other parts I may be able to use), so $4 for the auction and $5 for the postage :!: and it was...

Haven't used it my self, but I have seen some ages ago.
It was expensive stuff then, good quality, so I doubt it would be just plain steel.

Andy,

I don't know what gypsum is. Is that like plaster of parris??
I was going to try making a tunnel using the frocks method, as thin foam should bend into a tunnel shape quite easily (I hope). But haven't tried it yet.

Nice work Gerry!

I really like the small hint of moss growing in the grey cobble-stones and the drain.

Does operating from the front of a small layout block out the view of the public? I am asking because over here where space is not so much a problem layouts tend to be bigger and almost always operated from the back. I have only viewed two other layouts operated from the front and the operator sat w...

This is a great idea. I have heard of people using an old CD drive out of a computer because it finely balanced to run at high speed.
But this looks much simpler and even easier to do, and doesn't take up much space either.

Thanks Tony,

I always found it hard to weather stuff because I don't have an airbrush. I never thought of using a spray bottle like that. And I even have those paints, so I am sure going to give it a try.
