Greystones Model Railway Layout.

Excellent job - ideal to reduce light pollution, with the Perseid meteor shower due in a fortnight.

 

Hi Broithe

 

Exactly, I do a bit of astronomy and thats why I was so concerned and went to the trouble....

Hi

 

The landscapers were in on Friday morning to do a bit of tree planting, drink coffee, and eat cake...

Everything going fine but we do need a bit of undergrowth between those trees at the bridge to hide the backscene. Then the DART came up from Wicklow and the lads scarpered for lunch.....

Oh yes! the specialist was in to do the under-board curtain which is under fabrication and should be erected very soon

Just keeping you up to date, I know the photos are the same as previous but the J10 617 are in these ones, testing out it's new legs n gears, a few problems with the track showed up- 0-6-0 loco is a good engine to test track!!

Eoin, those scenes and that loco are simply sublime.  Greystones has evolved such a high level of realism that it defies adjectives.  I'm dreaming I'm 12 again, and just about to drag a mirror dinghy up onto that beach as the train trundles by, its shrill whistle scaring the sea gulls off the adjacent rocks.

Very nice Eoin one could well believe that it certainly does feel Baltic. I love the light on the hut.

Rich,

Rich,

Yes its fabulous.  I can almost here the echo of the motor cycle coming up the road from the Rugby club, interspersed with occasional waves crashing on the beech bathed in moonlight under the clear cold cosmic sky, with billions of galaxies visible to the naked eye. Wonder if they have trains on any of their planets . . . the horn of a distant 141 interrupts as distant rail noise heralds the imminent arrival of the mail train from Rosslare.

Yes definitely trains on the other planets! - back in early days Lowell was convinced he could see through the scope, canals and high speed railway tubes on Mars:$

That flood light just makes me feel cold; is there a fire in the hut?
