Don,

Thanks for the instructions on sending PMs.

I didn't know how to send them - and, judging by some recent forum posts, I don't think I'm alone.

I also wouldn't be surprised if a few posts end up being edited back to nothing - I'm not saying this will happen, just that it might!

Regards,

Huw.

Huw-none of my posts have ever been edited or "fixed" in any way except by myself. I don't think the movers & shakers here do that sort of thing. Some of my photos from earlier posts have been deleted but that is between me and Photobucket...before I knew what to do. I have not seen any censorship here (although some posts might need it!) . Now, what is said in a PM (personal message) might get some in legal trouble, but that's another matter. Get back to work and run a train.      

That Dolly Varden Mine layout is certainly outstanding and the modeling is top notch. Mining is my favorite type of operation and this line replicates the prototype beautifully. Wonderful work.           Woodie

I think I'd better apologise - I seem to have put across the wrong message in my post.

What I meant to say was that some people might have inadvertently posted things they thought they were putting in PMs - and that they might feel that they want to edit these posts. On the other hand, they might not - their choice entirely.

I can assure you that my concerns here were entirely connected with people accidentally making themselves vulnerable through unintended postings.

I've never had any issue with the way this site is run - and I'm not expecting this to change. 

I've never seen any censorship here - and I wasn't setting out to accuse anyone here of it. I'm sorry that I was misunderstood.

 

I'd also like to return to more pressing matters - like trains.

Regards,

Huw.

Returning to the real reason for this thread, the photos made my jaw drop - truly inspirational!

Scenes like these - modelled to this sort of standard - are rare indeed. They're also what draw a lot of people towards any sort of modelling - but especially railways.

Most of us would never be able to aspire to anything like this - but it doesn't stop us dreaming!

Excellent work.

Regards,

Huw.

Huw,

I did go back and block out the number.

Never a good idea to post a personal number on an open public forum.

I never even thought of it as censorship but rather as a protective measure.

FYI I did pass the number along to Dan in a PM before I x'ed it out in the post and contact between them has been made.

Back to trains and such. :2t:

Quick further update to "Dolly's" ventures...

For those of you that weren't aware, we sold Dolly Varden a while back to Dave Revelia, and the layout was crated up, packed into a container and shipped across to Florida, where it now is on display in a modelling museum of sorts, that Dave is piecing together (several layouts, dioramas and other models for open house displays).

I was also extremely pleased to have Russ from the Finescale Annuals print a layout feature of the Dolly Varden piece in the latest "Logging, Mining & Industrial Annual", due for release this April (subscribers will be getting their copies now, but due in stores shortly). Its a book that I have always admired for the high quality of the photographic content, and Russ has done a fine job of cleaning and tweaking the images I sent him some time ago now. While Dolly is no longer here on my local soil, getting that book in the post today was a proud reminder of the time we (John & I) spent on that little project.

Thanks Russ for the support.

Dan, I eagerly await the article! I won't try to add to the superlatives already expressed, other than to say the remarkable balance of scenery, the forest, the minimal track and structures that 'just look right' is superb. And I don't believe I have ever seen a more convincing waterfall in any scale, any layout.

Fantastic! Some years ago I did an HOn30 version of this Railroad (even had a photo of it in Model Railroader)- it was nothing compared to this- I am totally amazed by what you have acomplished- and portable no less! Thanks for showing this.

While I do think the scenery is amazing I am in love with that porter. I see it is a Bachmann but was that cab a kit or a scratch build?
