Some bales of hay which will be delivered to the extensive pig sties by the Davenport, on the Nocton estate a two foot gauge track ran down the centre of the pig sties.
This modified Bachmann On30 loco although it only has four wheels runs superbly over the dead frog points.



A birds eye view of the yard showing the very simple track layout.



A view taken standing under the bridge as a Simplex rumbles towards the camera as it sets off for another day in the fields.

A few more pictures I have found, taken when I first got the new camera and was testing it out.

Hi Peter.

Nice pixs of the farm !

That new camera & natural light together look great...

...& of course AAA modeling !

You inspired me to try my hand at a Quad...

...nice kit; fair progress on it, nowhere near done yet though.

Cheers

Si.

Those spud-sacks are hyper-real !

Are you sure you didn't weave the cloth & put individual spuds in ?

Nar...

...you just Photoshopped real ones in, right ?

(wink)

Hi Si,

Many thanks for your interest.

I can honestly say the potatoes in the sacks are what is called in a water colour painting a happy accident.
I probably couldn't get that effect again if I tried.

Kind regards Peter M

I was given a Concor switcher to use as power for one of my special shunters down on the farm. I decided to cheat with the wheel arrangement and call it a 2-4-2. I fancied something built in the farm workshop so thought a wooden body would make a believable alternative to metal.
I have made it up as I've gone along and now it is finished I'm quite pleased with its rustic look. The doors actually open using vertical hinges in the door and frame. The holes in the frame at the bottom of the door were done using a hot pin heated in a blow torch. It was not possible to get my pin vise drill close enough to do the job. All a bit of a bodge but it worked.
Here is a selection of pictures of the device in the yard at Two Sisters.

I have been asked on another forum to take a few close ups of the wooden bodied Simplex, these only serve to show up its faults really.
So I used the opportunity to clean the track and wheels of the locos and stock and generally test the layout ready for its next outing in April.

Thanks Herb, you know what I mean whatever you do you often think I wish I had done it differently.

I had a wander round down the farm this morning and took a couple of pictures of the new shunter's crew. There are two of them the driver and his young son.
I can't run the loco with the doors fully open as there is not enough clearance with the bride supporting wall. I can run with them slightly open though giving the onlooker a glimpse, it is the sort of thing children like to look at while at shows.
