A couple of days ago I finished building a model of the Dapol "Travelling crane", and placed it on the layout. This kit is very cheap. I think it cost me about £6. It was originally made by Airfix, and before that by Kitmaster.

I have completed it without the "bogies" that allow it to move along a length of track. This will follow in the future, but for now I have made it static. I also need to install the glazing.

Nice Ray!
I had this wonderful Dapol crane on the late Pfeilerbahn layout. Unfortunately, the cat loved dangling around with the hook, thus on a regular basis "de-capitating" the crane. Now the battered beauty (the crane, not the cat) is resting in a remote and cat-safe corner of the Slumburg layout. Therefore, watch out for Cat-zilla!

Hi folks,

I've been away for a week on holiday with my wife, and meanwhile my son Keith has been doing some videos of the trains I left on the layout. They were filmed on his I-phone, and I've uploaded them to youtube and edited them into one video. Unfortunately Youtube's video editor is now much more basic so it's just a series of straight cuts. ThumbDown

The trains you see runniing in this video are:

Br18.3 with Rivarossi CIWL train
Br73 with Roco 4 wheel coaches
Br 96 with Era I and II wagons
Brawa Br 53.8 with Era 2 wagons and my latest museum wagon from 2000

Enjoy!

Thanks Ray, I enjoyed that.

With some of the angles Keith chose, I can imagine a 'preiser' standing on the side of the track, mobile in hand filming the trains running by :)

Thumbs up for the Sunderland in the background.

Thanks Angus.

It's not very clear in those shots, but this Sunderland was modified by Keith to resemble a flying boat that appears in the game "Tomb Raider 2". Lara Croft finds her way on board at the end of one of the game sequences and escapes from the "baddies" by flying off in it.

Keith made several modifications, the biggest being the conversion from 4 engines to 2 engines. The paint job is very close to that seen on the game.

Excellent video, Ray. Your son did good job. I particularly like the one scene where the

BR18 is coming 'round the curve with the workers in front of the fences.

Great videos Ray, Keith has done a great job with the Iphone. I especially like the opening close up, and he has done a good job keeping control over the point of focus, often a real spoiler with moving subjects. ThumpUp ThumpUp ThumpUp

Recently I have not had many opportunities to run my trains, and unfortunately the build up of dust on the layout has made running my trains very unsatisfactory, with many "dead spots" around the layout.

To get things back to how they should be, I am going to have to give all the tracks a thorough clean, and while I'm at it I will vacuum the dust off the buildings, roadways and scenery. To make it easier to achieve this I have decided to remove all the catenary, wires and masts. Once I'm happy with the condition of the track I will put the catenary back.

This will probably happen after I return from my summer holiday in mid July, so if you're wondering why I am not posting any new photos of my layout please bear with me!

Hi Ray, yes I've been doing layout cleaning too. I have a dusting brush for the track, buildings,

etc. but I will not be removing the catenary (yikes!). I have noticed some dead spots too,

especially in the yards when running on digital, where there is not too much traffic.

Happy cleaning and have a great summer. Peter ThumpUp Smile

my son did the vacuum cleaning the other day but with our catenary there is no way we can remove it so it has to be done slowly and carefully. because all the wires are under tension there is a certain give and take before any damage occurs and so far we haven't had any problems.
