Hi Tony :wave:

You can have all the damn snow from me you want ! ;)
Stuff is a nightmare here, when it comes !!
2 years back, spent Christmas & Boxing Day with NO ELECTRIC :f:
Should get a generator really.

Tony, I think the camera may well have been set on maximum aperture for the lens-convertor combo.
ASA, maybe about 400.
Shutter-speed, perhaps around 1/30.
Fairly easy to find a workable combination.
Bloody cold that night though.
Very clear air & winter sky though.

Sorry to hear you are having problems with Windows-10.
We haven't changed any settings here at Freerails in fact at all.

You should see the 'G' if your 'Theme' is set to either 'AI Blue' or 'Ultra'.
Check your 'Themes' in the Preferences Menu.
Or of course, attachments are Postable using the button at the bottom of the Posting window as well.
Your Moon was done like that, I see.

Good luck with Windows-10, new software can sometimes be a bitch.

:moose:

Si.

Stay C O O L and near the air-con. ;)

Hi Si, by all means would have to have a refrigerated container to send the snow, ha, ha ;)
Thanks for the advice on the camera setting will give that a go, I use the ASA 400 setting a lot, in some ways I should of bought a Cannon camera for manual focus, mine is auto and can zoom in manual mode.
I have the setting set in Ultra have that nice blue colour, what I do is I save the  gallery link in my favourites easy to access the gallery pics  form there.
Got a cool change coming in this weekend can't do any work on the layout Saturday  duty officer at my train club Sunday is even cooler 28 degrees will make the most of finishing off the last approach module to the station modules, pics to follow. Gee it has take me 2 and a half years to get this far, hopefully have a train running by March might see me jumping un and down.:cb::bg::slow:. That is the whole front of the layout with the spiral to the car port.
Tony, keep warm.

Have finely finished levelling the last two approach modules northern end cut the legs to size and screwed them in temporary till next week where I will drill the hols and countersunk them for the quarter inch bolts plus screw in place a hinge so the leg can fold inside the module.
Sadly I can't access pics from my gallery without a page coming up Free rails needs info from you- image URL, what does this mean now, will have to go back to one pic per page bugger, hopefully get sorted out., I can't access the G for gallery unless I changee to Chrome instead of windows 10.
Not far now off now next week after Christmas will set up all the front modules and spiral, also have got cut out the decking doing down past the car onto to a 8ft curve radius onto the back corner module onto the cable stay bridge. I have cut a jig for the level for a 2 percent grade or can level the track to the bridge., the bridge will have a higher clearance to water line.

Merry Christmas, Tony from down under

Sadly I can't change my windows from Edge to IEP or Firefox my son said not a good idea will upset my circuity only one pic per post until another update in Google or windows fix the problem.
 Have done some more work on the layout seeing how the track bed decking fit to the changes in the track plan, have cut the length back two feet works out better in the car port area with the 7foot radius curve. Got plans for a back scene covering the back of the car and a curved single track viaduct look good.
Will have to figure out which way I will go with my control panel if I go one panel per block and walk around cab switching to radio control, hoping to share two 6amp transformers for the power to the layout need advice there, using rotary switches to control each throttle

Pic two is where the back corner module joins onto the cable stay bridge

Pic four is the view of the track beside the car again I can have a mountain cutting  scene there as well  will a small tunnel on the curve track
The next job now is the level the track to a 2 percent grade, 1 in 50 I have being told and have made a special jig works out quarter inch a foot to easy, there is a level you can buy that has the attachment be pretty dear to buy.
No work today and the weekend be too dam hot Saturday peaking 40 degrees today is peaking 35 degrees, cooler week next week, be working on my second railway station.
 Happy new year to everyone, Tony from down under

If anyone from OZ has Netflix, they have a rail doco on Norwegian rail called Bergen to Solo 7 hours of pure magic the best cab ride I have scene this line goes through the mountains so lots of tunnels snow sheds and the scenery is mind blowing changing all the time
I also found the doco on you tube if anyone is interested I will post the link on the next email it took four nights to watch the doco, in the mean time I found another link that has pics and a map plus a video clip to watch not all of the line, the doco was made to do with a 100 years of the line.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bergen_Line 


Happy new year to everyone in OZ and everyone else tomorrow night their time.

Just remember not to back the car out at the wrong time Tony. :>;) Good work getting your extra power to the Pommie loco. Always a problem with plastic bodies and lots of carrying wheels taking what little traction there is away from the drivers. I can't remember any mechs being suitable for building a 60 class. Maybe you might come across an old DJH kit unbuilt for sale. Given you seem to have stuff from all over the place, if you just want a Garratt perhaps look into the pommie one (LMS?), might be able to make use of a couple of cheap OO mechs! all the best Bob

style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"Good one Bob, it happens be easy just unplug the bus wires and undo a couple of screws and lift  the two sections out the way.
Thanks I be on the look out for a couple of cheap megs, need the bogies as well, problem with the 00 scale megs the wheel size, I have seen pics of the LMS one.
I have a few projects I want to finish next year , the  UP DD35 make up the hand rails paint and put on decals, loco has two motors., matches up with my DD40 loco
Same to you Bob,, going to be a stinker here today, redrawing the rack plan  in the oool lounge room.
