I like your work on the crossing--and it looks to have a constant radius all the way through.

Nice job!

I like it!


Herb

Yes sir, that is nice work. Now, why would you use flex track and commercial turnouts if you can build track like that? Remember that I am an old cat and usually get in trouble with my comments. I'm just sayin'..........

Hi Dan.

You've been busy again ... Looks GREAT !


The weather has turned YET AGAIN !

My garden looks like Brazilian rain-forest...

...It's a real time-killer ( I hate gardening ).


Been finishing a 1:32 'Miami South-Beach' art-deco hotel !

A muddle of 1:35 kits.

& playing with Timpo wild-west stuff.

A few drawings for layout ideas...

...but none seem that right, yet.

All very inspiring at FREERAILS as usual though.

All the best.

Cheers

Si.

Hi all

Very sorry, I have not been ignoring you all. I dropped my tablet and it has been in for repair and only just got it but last night but it now needs to go back in as cursa keeps scrolling to the bottom corner.:bang:

Just finnaly brought my self together to get out my paving slab and use that instead until the tablet is fixed.

Thank you all for your kind comments.

The reason for using commercial point work and flex track is that I build in 4mm scale EM gauge and all my track work, locos, wagons and every thing are kit or scratch built to the prototype.

I got board with it. I like free lance which is why I took on on30. Built what i want and like :2t:

Cheers Dan

Hi

The layout is now in the garage and have done quite a bit to it.

Will try and upload some pics with the SLR if I get time. Got a busy weekend. Tomorrow need Knocking down a wall and take down a ceiling. Go pup to watch England play :rah:and try not to get too pi**ed as Im demoing at the Chatham show on Sunday for the EM gauge Society.

Dan

Really Nice..The only thing I would say is that is awfully nice ballast work for a little narrow gauge road..Looks like class 1 ballast...You got a really wealthy railroad there..Keep them accountants ...2 + 2 must equal whatever you want it to be ROFL...I do love that river bed..damn fine work!! :)

Hi Todd

Yeah I over done the ballasting I think too, lots of laughs. After doing layouts based on the uk it's hard to get my head around how I'm going to capture the American narrow gauge look that you guys create so well.

Thanks to these forums it helps massively.

I was not to sure on the river bed at first, but glad to hear you like it. The long bridge at the back is now finished and the area around the river bed has been tieded up. Even weathered the ballasting, painted the ground around that area, and got some shrubs down. So when I up load the pics the comments would be extremely valuable good or bad, would rather know about the bad ones.

Please mind the spellings this is one of the many things I can't do.

The only way we all improve is when we get honest critiquing...With thatin mind, our visions vary so justbecause another may have done something different does not mean You have too..Still, it is good to get a sense of what others perceptions are so they can be weighed and measured against your own....As long as your having fun, thats whats really important !!!!!!! :moose:

Hi all

sorry for not posting as I have been very busy doing a lot of things lately, one of which is on my layout.
Thought I would up load a few pic of were I am at the moment, sorry for no gradual pics of the build as the camera that I use is on the tablet that I broke which is now fixed, also the station has moved back to the original position at the back of the main passing loop.


Hope you like them

cheers dan
