Indeed standard plumbing parts off shelf. Plastic anchors into drywall (metal condo studs are a pain) and solid oak shelf so no sagging. Been like that for years. We have exposed pipework in unit as we live in an old warehouse converted to lofts so pipe is eveywhere to continue the theme.

Like High Lines, that is a very neat installation. Love the supports not at all clumpy. Look very like Plumbing Parts?
Me too. I am hoping to have a high line around my shed once the shed move and clearout is complete (see thread "Land Grab"). Then I can have an RhB theme line which will give me an excuse to get that new LGB Ge 6/6 II. Some years away.

Sorry nothing to do with trams but aren't trams just trains that run on streets? (reaches for flak jacket) :)

Well you are forgiven as the RHB has a substantial amount of Street running near Tiarano and in Chur Locomotive. Running not unknown either on both.

Last Saturday I was up in scouseland to attend the AGM of the Tramway and Light Railway Society which was held at the Wirral Transport Museum in Birkenhead. Upon arrival at the museum and upon presentation of our membership card we were issued with a day ticket giving access to the museum and as many tram rides we wanted on the Heritage Tramway.

Not having visited the Liverpool/Birkenhead area before I decided to take the Mersey Ferry across to Birkenhead which deposited me at one end of the heritage tramway. Just as I got off the ferry the Birkenhead Open-Topper arrived which was photographed after arriving at the museum:

Also operating that day was the Liverpool Baby Grand:

and the Wallasey Open Balcony Double-Decker:

Not operating that day were the following trams which, of course, never ran in service in the Liverpool/Wirral area:

There were some more trams inside the museum but it was rather difficult to get any decent photographs.

All in all it was a worthwhile trip to attend the AGM, see the museum and ride all the trams in operation that day although it did mean an early catching the 06:02 Southeastern High Speed up to London to arrive in Liverpool by 10:10. Weather was grotty all the way but the sun came out soon after arriving at Liverpool. Great day!!

Keith,
We often say the sun shines on the (self) righteous up here!

The two trams 69 & 70, not running that day, were ordered new from Hong Kong tramways by a rather enlightened town council.
They were numbered to follow the original Birkenhead Tramways fleet, and provided an inaugural service while local trams were being restored.
Still in use, they do look rather odd on std gauge trucks, as does the Lisbon car.

While sorting through boxes in the garage looking for G scale to dispose of I came across this model of a Chester demi-car I scratch-built some 20 odd years ago. My son and I had an exhibition layout - scale around 1/32 running on Peco O gauge track to represent 3'6"/metre gauge. Lima O motor bogies or scratch built chassis' picking up 12v DC for traction. I also built an articulated Blokkendozen 9G in Amsterdam livery (no 780), a Great Yarmouth Brush car (no 6) with reverse staircase and a Norwich Brush car (no 1). Coincidentally the body of the latter still exists inside a somewhat ramshackle 1930s holiday home about half a mile from my home. My 1:24 man from China lurks in the photos to give an idea of scale - which must be close to gauge one. If I come across any of the others I'll post more piccies.

I recently completed converting these two ‘rustic tin decorations’ with a repaint of the lower half and battery powered chassis.
They are Lisbon trams and one has a Tamiya gearbox homebuilt chassis and the other has a Phil Sharples (vwmonkeyblue) laser cut wood chassis off eBay
