Thanks for the kind words, David :thumbsup:

Well, I took delivery of the Dapol Class 26 ND145H yesterday along with the weathered Farish 08. Oh heck, I have lifted my test track ::) So I slapped down an oval round the layout, and the 08 ran very well (apart from a waddle which seemed to settle down). However, the class 26 was dead as a dodo (see loco reviews - Dapol diesels Class 26). So I thought I'd dig out the Dapol 9F and the Dapol Brit as Ive never run them since I bought them ages ago due to my test track having 1st radius curves. I am pleased to say the 9F ran a treat and the Brit was good, albeit a bit noisy at first.



Now being in a position to run something, I committed the cardinal sin of starting to play trains when there's so much more to do ::)



I have severely reprimanded myself and desisted (for now ;)) and will try and make more progress tomorrow.
Oh, and I've sourced a height adjustable swivelling stool from my skin & blister which is great for viewing despite my derriere being slightly too big for the squab :o

Having reviewed this post, can anyone tell me why posting vids from Photobucket also carries a still of the vid????

Update on this weekend's work.
Station trackage now laid, although there are 3 code 80 points I need to replace with code 55.

From the west



From the east



I've also laid track for the cement works but this may have to be altered when the N gauge gravel buildings arrive in September (I hope)



Just the branch line fiddle yard and the lift out board to sort and then start playing with the electrickery :uneasy:

I'm sure a little running session is allowed after all that trackwork  ;)

Looking good so far, and some lovely long runs there  :envy:

Thanks, Dave. I'll get some done tomorrow night as I try not to use flash and it's a bit dim in there at the moment :camera:

The links you copied from Photobucket contain a URL link for displaying the video, and an IMG link that is producing the still picture below it  ;) Don't use PB myself to explain why both links have been provided, but it does explain why you're getting a video AND a picture. An easy fix would be to delete the IMG tags and everything inbetween, this bit:-

Very impressive John, I had to watch it twice to catch everything.

Thanks Malc,

I expect to get into trouble for doing it  :uneasy:  :telloff:

They were videoed ages ago when I was playing around with different cameras.

The Santa Fe F7 now has 12 passenger cars to pull.
The Morning Daylight has an additional 8 cars making up the full 18, about 9 foot long  :goggleeyes:

cheers John.
