Sadly my old PC died a couple of weeks ago so I have had to get a replacement. Among the features I didn't have before was the option to change colour photos to black and white or sepia. The new PC has this option so I thought I would give it a try.
I thought it would give a few of my pictures a sort of period look. With such a small layout there is not a lot more you can do. Overall I think I prefer the sepia look.

Yes, I like them. They make the fine work have that "period" look. How about some more?

Woodie

Nice pix Peter !

Very 'old proto photo' look.

I do love your colouring & weathering on the layout though.

Reminds me of when Railway Modeller was printed mostly in B&W...
...gone are those days; these days !

Cheers

Si.

I have to say that the sepia look is a refreshing change, sometimes.

Like anything else, moderation is the key.

Hi again Peter

I can see by my comment on page 10...
...I have already admired the GMC engine !
Looks GREAT as a load on the skip chassis.

I dunno if it's just me, but it almost looks smallish ??
Perhaps this is the 32/35 difference.
I am still wrestling with the new size/scale.

'O' scale Kadee's, Vs. 'HO' scale for example.
The Kadee's look fine on your stuff Peter...
...but on my bench the ones on Bachmann On30 stuff look too small next to a 1:35 figure ... ARHG!
The 'O' scale couplers, now, look too BIG.

Maybe L&P's ?

It looks like the Athearn chassis on your Opel Blitz is EXACTLY the same as the one from the S-12 I have.
I seem to remember it runs well.

You mentioned limited figure's available.
I have a few of different sorts.

I got these ones just recently though...
Kids Globe set # 571931 & another # set, similar.
Both are very-nice 1:32 'farm style' figures; complete with cool-tools, like a chain-saw, leaf-blower, buckets etc. etc. as add on extras.
Quite nicely painted already; bit of weathering needed.
Look pretty nice; soft placky, easy to bend/cut.
Well worth checking out; & fairly cheap too.
I got my 2 sets from 'scalefarm.com'
They have all sorts of other stuff as well...
...little bits & bobs etc.

Cheers

Si.

I am actualy after an old-tractor as well...
...Herb seems to know quite a bit about these.
& the Miniart 1:35 farm carts look nice, for an older period.

TOO MUCH fun !

All the best.

2013 has not been a good year for electronic devices for me. Firstly my old computer died after some eight years use then the screen died and now my wife's compact camera has cried enough also. Although to be honest it has taken many images over the last thirteen years so I shouldn't complain really.

I have never owned a digital camera, I always borrowed the one belonging to my wife in the past. With that no longer working I have had to lash out on a device of my own.
These are a few images I have taken with the new camera while testing the layout and stock in readiness for some forthcoming exhibitions.

I must admit I am very pleased with the Camera, it is a compact Canon and was on offer at half price. Its performance when used for close ups seems especially good. The image files are very large and I was concerned about reducing them so that I could post the photographs.
So here are a few more.



The area under the rear wheel arch looked a little bare on the Quad so I added a small air tank and its associated piping on the offside. On the near side I added a small wooden toolbox.

The men outside the workshop put me in mind of a formula one team waiting for their car to pit for tyres and re-fuelling.



The men now have something to do checking over the two tractors before they set off for a days work.



A Bachmann V tipper chassis and a rudimentary wooden body made of plasticard with an engine and other items piled on it to be repaired in the workshop.



It's Sunday morning and a quiet period in the yard, with the wooden bodied Simplex and Tilly resting between assignments.

I have reset the camera to the M2 setting which gives images from 400odd kb to 700 odd kb instead of 5 mb. This means I can save more images on the memory card.
The only thing I'm not too keen on is the instruction manual which is on disc and not hard copy, but then I am very old fashioned and I was a printer in my working life.

The quality is nearly as good from a posting pictures point of view as can be seen from the following pictures.

Ya done good with the new camera. Pictures are very sharp. Always a pleasure to see your little railroad.
