The great railway room tidy-up continues. Today’s task, sort out the odds and end box of screws, nails and bolts. All the odds and ends go in here, and sorting a little should stop me going out and buying a new box of fixings!
Out and about today. We start in Australia.
I do like sugar cane railways, having had a glimpse of a steam line in Java, and plenty of diesel action in Queensland. But has anyone modelled a drawbridge railway level crossing?
No real reason for this one, but I do rather like these early Australian electrics. An excellent preservation job – and the steam trains passing are rather interesting, too.
North to Japan.
An interesting little article on driving the first bullet trains in 1964.
And this layout looks like Mr Rowlatt’s lounge on steroids!!!
Across the Pacific to the USA.
I really liked this layout. 3-rail O gauge, but the trains and scenery are so good, that you barely notice the third rail.
And we come in to land in the UK.
HS2 may be unpopular in places, but it’s going to be interesting engineering. Here’s a report on the start of tunnelling north of London.
And at Kings Cross, they’ve reopened the third tunnel at the station throat.
Finally, this link looks very useful with today’s weather!
And you know this is true…..
