Sorry about the link. I didn't mean to give offence.
QUOTE I would say to anyone else contemplating building an Ex LNWR station to give scratch building in cardboard a go, its very rewarding, easy, and a heck of a lot cheaper !!! .Watch this thread for a blow by blow article on this subject when it is completed.
That will be interesting as I am considering making one of my stations either joint MR/GNR or LNWR/GNR.
QUOTE Where did you get the 'chad' from ??. I know NZ is a little behind the times but surely not that far !!.
I can confirm that the pieces of card which got punched out on computer cards in "ye olden days of computers" were known as chads. I used to have a tin full of them somewhere which I blagged from the university computing department. I don't know how they were given this name but it was also used in the US and played a prominent part in the first election of George W Bush in 2000. "Hanging Chads" anyone? Here's a Wikipedia entry on paper chads
I seem to remember my father telling me of a UK cartoon character from the 40s named Chad - the character was similar to Kilroy in the US?
First, may I wish you "Many happy returns of the day", that's quite a milestone you've reached.
QUOTE I have opened an account with 'You -tube" and we are trying to work out how to post these to the forum .
It is actually very easy to embed You Tube videos on this Forum, so easy that you can do it by hand. The hard parts are a) remembering what to do and
showing you what to add to your post and have it visible rather than interpreted literally if you see what I mean.
So here goes....
What you type will look like this in your editor as you create your post
The only difficult bit is getting the unique reference number. If you collect the "URL" stuff at the top right of the video page on YouTube, you'll get the number at the end of the line and not too much "fluff" to remove at the beginning.
It's always nice to see some "before" photos because that's as far as a lot of us get. Knowing that it is possible to create something which looks as good as your viaduct (hopefully) is a great incentive for pressing on.
QUOTE David ( DWB) May notice that the bridge is more blue than green!!!
It is indeed. If that's one of your scanned slides then I think my theory that digital cameras sometimes get the colour balance wrong may be on the right track.
Please keep posting photos; I do enjoy seeing them and I don't like to interrupt the flow of a topic too much saying very nice every time... it's a hard balance to strike though as I know how long it can take to put a good post together and seeing few responses does make you wonder sometimes but there's always the view count...
QUOTE I still think these Jubes were fine looking locos
I couldn't agree more. Despite my model being LNER (ex-GNR) based, I have somehow acquired three Jubilees so that they are the best represented class of any locomotive on my layout - so long as don't count my wife's pair of SBB Re460s which together with my own makes 3
It's nice to see that Hornby Dublo 8F too. I bought a Wrenn 8F simple because of the rivets on the tender....
I look forward to the next instalment.
