I really like that Pullman Car; I'm glad the chaps dealt with the dodgy bearing.  The four-wheeler looks like an old GWR carriage and is very nice indeed.

Best wishes.

MY apologies to the followers of Averingcliffe, but there has been very little to report on the comings and goings in Averingcliffe for a while. There is a very small piece in the 'N Gauge pub crawl' thread -

Hi dannyboy,

Wow, just wow, that is an amazing layout and so much in only a 12' long layout, great work.  The Kato track looks amazing, you've now fully alleviated all of my concerns about Unitrack, it looks stunning.

The turntable is amazing, I've always wanted one I think they are one of the coolest things about railroads.  I can just never seem to find the space to put them, you've done yours perfect!  Do you have any full pictures or videos of it, my internet is very slow today.  The one video I did see looked great!

Just a short post to inform the followers of Averingcliffe that, once again, there is not much to report.   :(.  I am afraid I have been doing other work around the house, including filling a skip with 'rubbish' - where does it all come from? Plus, my 'mojo' must have got thrown out with the rubbish, but, I did hear that it was finding its way back home.  :). One thing positive to report is that the station is nearly finished. I was having lots of 'bovver' trying to make the ornate window arches out of card and even using a template that I made out of Plasticard, I could not get all the arches to look the same. However, there is a packet on its way to me from America, (thanks to a forum member), so hopefully, work can resume on the station.  :thumbsup:

@BradC  Thank you for those kind comments Brad - glad you are convinced about Unitrack.  :). The turntable is the Kato one, not cheap, but well worth the money in my opinion. (Actually, it was well worth twice the money as I managed to 'blow up' the first one - don't ask! So if anyone wants a none working Kato turntable ...........). I think the two videos I made and all the photographs are shown on the thread, but if you require any more photographs of the turntable or there is anything that you would like another photograph of, let me know.  :beers:

Yes please!  :photospleasesign: of the turntable and a video of it in action if you can!

I'm going to have to figure out a way to fit on on the layout later, perhaps on an expansion.

Thanks

Will get something sorted for you. It might be Sunday, as I have to collect some wood today, do some gardening for for my Aunt tomorrow, build a raised planter Friday, (with the wood I am buying today), and Saturday - yippee - I am taking Louisa to Enniskillen - our first trip since March!  :claphappy: (We have had to wait until the restrictions existing in Northern Ireland and the Republic have equalised a bit). But I will get them done for you.  :thumbsup:

Forgive me people, but I am trying out a new video editing programme. I have put just a few stills from the Easter Gala together - I appreciate that most of you will have seen the pictures before.

Addit: Apologies @BradC - I am still trying to get to grips with the programme.  :)

Works fine here and looks pretty good to me
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Blooming 'eck, David!

That's jolly clever stuff.  It looks excellent; thank you very much.

The BN locomotives are a surprise!

Best wishes.

I have to admit to liking the BN locomotives, primarily because of the colour scheme, but also because they are all Kato or Atlas locomotives - I have eleven in total. (I am not running down GF or Dapol locomotives, but ...........). They do not exactly fit with the idea of Averingcliffe, but, what is Rule 1 for?  ;)
