Maybe just needs the A3 or an A1 loco at the head of the train. I did like the Drewery early on with a van train. Still superb and attracting positive attention.

Wow!
Thank you all for your positive replies to yesterday’s video, very much appreciated. Fortunately I found some new places in Hillsden to video from, which I thought made some great shots, which along with your comments has given me a idea for a future video.

I hope you are not expecting the same viewing experience tonight, as the next video, is not as good as it was filmed early in yesterday’s session and caused me quite a few problems.

Again thank you for your appreciation

Stay safe

Mike. It is always nice to have photographs and videos of different angles which show the modellers, in your case, hard work

Hillsden Day 77 (Eleven Weeks and Counting)

It is eleven weeks today since my first post and what surprises me is you are all still reading them, or are you like me, just look at the pictures.  :D

Well, it has been a warm and sunny today and guess what, I have done no railway modelling again, that’s two consecutive days, any more and I will be getting withdrawal symptoms.

Today has been different as Mrs N and I ventured out to Cottingham to see our Granddaughter for the first time since lockdown, however, we have had video calls with her. Oh yes, we also saw our daughter and son in law. At least the visit put a smile back on Mrs N, it is our Granddaughter Alice’s third birthday later this month.  ::)

Again, thank you for your kind comments for yesterday’s video, very much appreciated.  :thankyousign:

On Friday I commented in my post about the reasonably close coupling of the new Farish Thompson coaches compared to the mk1’s which is quite noticeable. Last night’s video had them running with Dapol’s Gresley’s, the gaps between them when coupled are very similar, hence do not look out of place. I need to look at changing the couplings on the Mk1’s unfortunately I don’t have any with NEM pockets, so it will be a painful task and will remain on the list to do, for a long, long time.

Anyway, as promised another video, this was filmed during the same running session as yesterday, but however was done first, where troublesome trucks caused problems, along with other faults. Why is it that when camera is on, everything plays up, where on a normal session everything behaves?

Tonight’s video features an A4 on the Pullman, Crab on express passenger, Class 101 DMU, Drewery Shunter, Standard 4MT tank on goods and WD on coal empties and is a little over 7 minutes long.

Hope you enjoy tonight’s second premier of the weekend




Well that’s it for today, a short and early post as we have a family quiz this evening via zoom along with a couple of lemonades, so probably not able to type later.

Hope you have enjoyed your visit to Hillsden and that you return soon

Stay safe

That's a pleasant evening video with a super range of stock.  Hope one manages to sort the couplings issue with the mk 1 coaches

Yesterday evening Mrs Nbodger decided she wanted to watch the Hillsden video’s I had uploaded over the weekend. She said those new Thompson Coaches look nice, you should get some more.

Well I sincerely hope it wasn’t the bottle of wine talking  :hmmm:

When they arrive, can you prove that Mrs Nbodger gave you permission?  ;)

Echoes my thoughts. Do you have it in writing, Mike? Budgie smuggling is one thing but a rake of coaches??
