Just posting this as a reminder for those who have difficulty obtaining materials sometimes.


One small problem is that there are no Model engineering companies on this island, so everything has to be shipped in. Although certain materials are available, forget all the different "Grades" so a gloat is finding the correct Colour of material.

Anyone interested can view the constructional articles on the initial website.

Regards Ian.

That's quite a compound. Is that broken class on top of the cement walls to repel invaders ? Dupont Childrens Hospital in Delaware has that, apparently one of the Dupont's had a nasty divorce and had the glass embedded in the cemet to prevent people from climbing the wall.

Oh yeah, I like the train too :)

Iv heard of that method before.. plant bottles into the cement and smash off the tops, Recycleing!

No B/M It ain't mine, but is the work of a good T'internet buddy of mine. The track wasn't there six weeks ago and the NEXT piece to be made is a passenger trolly so the kids CAN have a ride.

Was only talking to him today and the wonderment of something that they wouldn't be able to see in the full size by nipping down the road. No bloody X-boxes and Nintendo's to detract them from LIFE.

That is nice. Life is very hard in some places and maybe he can give the kids a little fun in their life.
