    Hi all And now the short one in place. It stands out which is what I wanted and should be less obvious when the rest are glued in. ignore the bare one that's just sitting there so I can gauge the effect of the short one. regards John

    Hi all Well the bamboo is slowly moving at about 25% snail pace I am not really sure about the lighter green for the short sapling if that's the right word for bamboo. But then again it's all about different colors and textures the real world isn't monotone green. The short bit will be used in an awkward part hole where the base was cut. regards John

    Hi Broadoak I always use Peco track even when its set track nothing I have come across beats it as far as commercially made track goes. The exception that proves the rule is the Japanese micro layout How big is this one and do you have a drawn plan for it. Narrow obviously being a shelf. regards John

    Hi Broadoak Now you just have to do a small extension so we can see just how you get such good results . Wake the bloke on the wagon if he has time to sleep he has time to tidy up all the junk. So the mechanics can see what they have to play with to make the new thingamabob the railway or the farm needs regards John

    Hi Broadoak It is surprising how many people really think you need a small aircraft hanger to build a decent model railway so valid point. Did not spot any farm cats on the layout pictures Me My OO layout is 4'6" square the 1/80 Japanese narrow gauge one is somewhere around 40cm X50cm and uses not much more track than came in the 1960's Jouef/Eggerbahn train sets which is where the track for that one came from. I do have a frame for a much larger narrow gauge layout done but have been distracted by other modeling projects. Just make sure the natural law of model railways doesn't start to exert its self to much. That states that a model railway will expand to fit all of the available space and more if it can find it regards John

    Hi Broadoak Certainly a very interesting and well detailed model. After seeing a video on you tube of real versions of your motive power, just one question where is the Dodgy Brothers passenger coach for the trucks to haul? Any expansion plans for this one? The porter and tippers look OK to me. regards John

    Hi all Well yet again very little to report. Have tried to settle down and get the bamboo done but it's such a boring job it has not got to the put it on layout stage. the line has however gained its first passenger!!?? The picture is a bit washed out due to the need for the flash and a bright light to see into the shelter. The station name for what it is worth is written in Japanese characters above the English translation and would be visible to any passengers on the train. regards John

    Hi Franco I know Panda's are Chinese The idea is if I hide one in the bamboo, then nothing else that doesn't belong on the layout will show up because the thing that doesn't belong is already there Well that's the mad cap theory at any rate. regards John
