Hi Si,

It is indeed Chanel !. They were selling the "Essence of Steam & Diesel" really cheaply - apparently it hadn't sold well (can't think why ?).

Funnily eneough, Madame S doesn't seem that keen on it either - probably reminds her of how I smell !.

Funny things, wimin'. No pleasing them sometimes. Especially when I told her it was a real bargain price present !!

Cheers,            Michael

Hi Michael.

I thought the Coco Chanel 'Railroad Engineer Line' could be a winner.

A girl (gouil, in Brooklyn) I once new, sold a lot of high-end pong downtown.

She said to the wimin'...
...try a bit of the one you like on...
...& see if he likes it this evening.

Basicaly; don't buy what you like, buy what he likes !

I just thought therefore...
...'Essence Of Diesel & Steam-Footplate' could be perfect for Mrs.S.

I think it's called 'fuzzy-logic', in the computer world !?

Toodle pip.

Si.

Si : Don't all computers run on fuzzy logic rather than actual reality ?

Cheers,    Michael    

(time for a beer in that wobbly pub, can't even design a dead end track this evening).

Hello Dan,

Yes, I am modelling 3' gauge D&RGW (but in On30, <£ !) so sufficient space is a must, especially with larger locos & decent train lengths.

I like watching large locos/heavy trains go rumbling past on an alternative 2nd  route while I'm doing something else - either switching team tracks, playing guitar or dealing with business paperwork (yuk). That is the whole idea of the raised rear track as a depot/junction avoiding route and scenic feature.

Omitting it would free up more 'depot' space but every train would have to follow the same route all the time - there would be no Junction. Gotta have some variety. Gotta have a junction or I'll have to re-letter some of the buildings !. 

Interesting that you mentioned wishing you had added an extra few inches to your 24" width - my Residential Director has already sanctioned an extra 6" (in a manner of speaking !!) to give a main board width of 30" - way to go I think 'cos I'm only going to build it ONCE so it had better be right.

As I think I mentioned before, you manage to make that Peco track look really good. Scenery ain't bad either (damn good in fact).

Cheers,               Michael



Hi Michael

I like you ideas, wished I had the space. Well I do just got to much other rubbish in the way. Think it would be best increasing the depth of you depot boards to 30" like you said 2ft is tight, may be a little deeper if you can afford the space, though Its surprizing how much an extra few inches eats up the room.

Thank for you kind comments

Cheers Dan

Thanks Dan, I think you have sold me on making the main depot/junction area 30" wide.
I already have some heavy duty baseboard open frames built to 24" width so bolting on a 6" cantilever should be possible. Yes, it will eat up more valuable space in an already multi-function room but Madame S has already said she wouldn't mind an extra 6" (presumably she meant the baseboard ?).

Regards,             Michael

Thanks Dan - I consider 1 animal thing to be an encouraging start (bit like most of my school reports ... "Could do better"  - but I seldom did !!).

Thanks Dan & James. Confirmation of what I have long suspected - that my sense of humour exceeds my modelling skills. Now I know why people laugh at my models !.

Cheers,                Michael
