ohmy.gif Hi everybody. Long time since I last posted. I've been trying to see some of my pictures - from way back.
Suddenly my computer expert (SWMBO) has found them all on her computer.
May I request some kind member to check this forum (welcome to the GVR) - and let me know if you can see the pictures.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

We thought we could show some of our railway pictures , not works of art but most of them are quite historical.One thing they have in common---they were all taken by us , no cribs and no copy right to worry about.
The real live ones were taken by me over many years, and the models were taken by my regular photographic person(swmbo) on the Goon Valley Railway.





















We hope you find something of interest. Thanks for looking in .


regards

When I looked in this morning I was surprised to see the Goon Valley thread at the foot of page one. Something had to be done to escape relegation down to the second division.I did not think that King Edward's bones would help , nor the offerings of a Buddhist High Priest so I resorted to making another post, this should shoot me right up to the top of the premier league.
So here it is , a couple of pictures taken by my ever faithful Kodak person showing that not every thing has ground to a halt on the Goon Valley Railway because of a few alterations. These are in fact progressing , all be it very slowly, and might be reported on shortly. My health and physical conditions don't help, but as someone once said the only way to go is onwards, and upwards






Both pictures were taken during the modifications to Eccles Junction . the first is a Tri-ang streamlined Duchess passing Ellington Shed . The second is a Wrenn 2-6-4T handrepainnted and lined by me a long time ago, so far back that I can't remember whether it is a Hornby-Dublo or a G and R Wrenn .

Congratulations to the Foxes, what a wonderful achievement .

Welcome to the forum David. It's never too late to be a beginner at anything.- with or without silver hair . lmfao.gif

Morecombe and Heysham is a good-looking locomotive especially in the 1947 L.M.S lined black livery. Enjoy.

Don't forget to top up your tender with real water . I'd hate to see you blow up your boiler.

Thanks for posting this very interesting thread, and replies.
Can someone now tell us the difference between the HMRS "methfix" and "pressfix" transfers,and how to identify which is which, please. Like Bizman I've quite a lot of old sheets which are unmarked.

Many thanks,

Some very interesting posters there MMD. Thanks for giving the old grey matter a nudge.
I remember the Festival of Britain and the Battersea Fair very well . I remember that the BR standard 7MT was not Britannia but none other than the brand new 70004 William Shakespeare, delivered straight from Crewe in a special exhibition livery. I also remember the lovely Nell Gwyns at the fair as well as their lovely oranges. blink.gif

Welcome to the forum Robert. I am sure you will find your restoration work enjoyable , but it's no doddle.I reckon that restoring old and pre-used models is a noble pastime, so I wish you every bit of luck with your project.Please up-date us with your progress from time to time.
