As restrictions still prevent us all from our meetings, some of the group continue with Zoom meetings every fortnight. On the modelling front, Roy continues with work on the boards, Tony has been working on some stock and Mike with the buildings. I have now became an expert at gaining weight. Jim Wa ....
These hopper wagons are for the 'fitted head' of my representation of 8M17, the Monckton (Royston) - Northwich coke train which ran via Woodhead until closure. Class 8 trains had to have a certain proportion of braked stock at the head of the train to allow them to run at (I think) 35mph.
Once again we find ourselves in the virtual world discussing work in progress on our several projects, but unable to enjoy the pleasures of life before lockdown. Having said that the zoom world is a rewarding space where we can show projects all be it without the advantage of 3D inspection. Mode ....
Afternoon all, hope you are all well and staying safe. There has been a bit of progress on my little layout.
Firstly a name! How about Progress Pit, not in the least original but at least its a name. Looking in some publications I came across Shotton colliery near Peterlee. About five miles from whe ....

One of the more interesting perils of being a high school teacher is the students periodically decide to do a Google search on you. And if you are really "lucky" they find you. This happened to me recently and so my blog was dusted off from the internet and I had to show some of my stuff ....
This month we again met, in what seems to be becoming the choice for several 2mm Association Area Groups, to hold a virtual meeting using Zoom. Whilst we all miss the 'real world' contact of face to face discussion and the close-up inspection of 'real' things, zoom does maintain an air of normality. ....
Our virtual meeting this month saw Nigel, Alisdair, Jim, Chris G, Tony, Mick S, Graham, Simon and Stephen zoom in for a session with the theme "Buildings".First up was Chris, who took us through the technique he has developed for Bosaleck, written up in more detail on RMWeb, and indeed reported on f ....
Hello all, just a few more photos of the layout.
Its progressing ok(ish) and moving in the right direction. Havn't thought of a name yet so its still the layout
Just an overhead of the break into the fiddle yard. The structure is meant to be a grotty rundown pit head and loading point. All the ....

March 2020: Annual editing of the feed list threw up a few dead blogs, so
they've been removed from the auto-checker (which has also fixed the page
load speed - it was waiting for these dead blogs to not answer). If you've
re-started your blog, and it doesn't appear in the list below, or postings
fail to appear above, please get in touch with the webmaster.
Sites list is edited fairly regularly, and those without new entries in
the last two or three years are removed, assumed defunct. So, if your site comes back to life, please get in touch to be reinstated. For advice on
adding your site to the above, and a set of easy to install tools for websites,
please contact the webmaster. I have added a short article about using
