Harz running today. We seem to be back in regular mowing season again! By the time that was done it was trying to rain.

Nice speed and a nice selection of suitable stock as well. Oh but that traffic noise, would drive me nuts but sometimes one has to suffer a little for a nice big garden and location like where you live.

Interesting that the Government is considering regulations to make Battery Cars have an Electrinically generated engine noise, seams to me that the Tyres make enough noise to drown out all the engine noise already. Never heard 1 car engine in all that vid.

Mowing and pruning the back hedge was about all I got around to today - other than running trains. Harz theme today.

I assume the 'handrail' is Weld-Mesh?

Neat idea.. :)

Yes. I got a 6 x 3ft sheet from ebay for about 20 quid including delivery. The holes are 2 x 1 inch.

Thanks Alan, you anticipated the secondary question!

I cut it with every other leg longer. These long legs go in holes drilled in the deck and the short legs act a a depth limiter. By cutting the next piece upside down, relative to the first piece, the long legs are already there without having to cut off any bits. The long legs do have short cross bits still welded on but a gentle twist and they fall off pretty easily. - Simples.

Nice Rollwagens, but they look to couple to a hook am I right? If so and if I get some would have to think about using the system that I used on my Scratch Ones. I do not use Hooks on Locomotives.
