Please laugh! I didn't know that there is a village in Oxfordshire, called "Brill". It had a short steam tramway a century ago. Well, I did ask you to laugh! Brill, brill & brill!

It’s just inside Buckinghamshire, Philip - this was our conversation on the “Our Philip” thread in 2016 Thumbs up

Hi all Wave A busy scene at Bramble Lane, with evening fitted goods, having vans added by Class 22 diesel. The train loco Class 43xx, on its way to Banbury once it gets the all clear. Of course, it's all in the mind. This was an everyday activity at one time on a secondary branch line, providing there was sufficient interlude between through or passenger trains. The small yard adjacent to Courthouse Green often used their own Drewry shunter to add & take off stuff, which saved run round loops & time, than if the train loco had to do it.

Morning all Wave A picture at Hounds Hill yesterday. DMU to Coventry & Leamington can be seen approaching Hounds Hill, from Priors Field on the unidirectional line, into platform 2, whilst fresh from overhaul. Austerity 2-8-0 waits with a light loaded afternoon parcels to Northampton, a running-in turn. The same scene from a different view point. The loco had indeed had a new motor fitted, a bit of trim needed to fit the latest hi-tech precision motor & gears. This loco, now nearly twenty years old, was heavily weathered by me, but I always use water colour paste to weather, so easily removed to make the loco look brand new, or ex-works condition.

Bloomin' brilliant, Philip, your first photo looks too good to be true. Clever one that one. Thumbs up

At first glance that first photo really could be the real thing. Bit of flooding on the tracks in the distance I think. MR's right, a high vis vest should be mandatory at track level. Big grin Will you be getting to the model railway exhibition at the canal warehouse next weekend?

Hi all, it's Friday evening. Just blether! Synonymous with over a decade of model railway fun. As well as my son, my two grandchildren, also my model railway chum Mick, this was the activity evening. Any shortcomings highlighted, so as to be rectified by the following Friday. To maintain interest, railway building continued, all within the grand plan, designed just prior to the millennium. So what am I rabbiting on about? Mick so sadly died a few years ago & my grandchildren are now past playing trains. They've all grown up. I never took that into account when designing & building. The railway was deliberately designed to be operated by three, plus an overseer, often me. So, as daft as it sounds, our railway is too big. I can shut areas off, so making operations easier, which is what I tend to do now. The glass of port is nice.

Not quite miniature at 1:18 scale. It's my latest model acquisition taken using a smartphone. Who'll be first to guess the make and model? Cheers

Wild guess - is it a 1959 Chevrolet Impala convertible? Whatever it is, it's looking good. Edited by member, 20th Sep 2019 10:08 pm

Oh, was it that easy? Here's a more obscure car to try your luck on.

No, but it does come from that part of the world.
