    Do me a favour and delete my account bullyboy, I won't be making the same mistake twice.

    That's ok, I don't want to be your friend, but I was about the only person on here expressing concern about corona 18 months ago, which should tell you something.

    Nothing odd at all, it's time to move on.

    That's ridiculous. The corona restrictions were too little, too late and are now too much, too long. Vote with your feet Leslie, let Warley die, get your money back.
  5. Yes, it looks a bit MPD
  6. The quintessential 1970s NIR siding as seen from a passing 70 Class - cut-down open, spoil wagon, ex-railcar hauled stock
  7. Maybe people are expecting too much, detail and robustness? These things were a one off and they are as they arrived, it's not going to magically get better. I'm sure GM vacuum pipes are available from other sources anyway, maybe 3.5 rather than 4mm but who would notice.
  8. I'm really tempted to model this, with railcar operated freight and some brutish mineral wagons laid up, maybe a strange-looking industrial shunter pottering about. Does this sound at all familiar?
  9. Fintona analogues. GFM Broc, Suisse BAM Ballens, Suisse
  10. The above three are all Interlaken area which is German but the French in this niggled me. Internet tells me it's a Vevey-Montreux-Chillon tram, runs along Lake Geneva https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vevey–Montreux–Chillon–Villeneuve_tramway I would guess they travelled between the two areas on the Golden Pass line https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/GoldenPass_Line
  11. First two are Jungfrau Bahn https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jungfrau_Railway Third is Brienz-Rothorn Bahn https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brienz_Rothorn_Railway
  12. That looks a lot like Niesen in the background, the first high ground you see going south on the Bern–Lötschberg–Simplon. Maybe Emdthal between Spiez and Reichenbach https://goo.gl/maps/nrD155RETCLW2VFP7 The background is pretty much uniformly high from there on into the Rhône valley, where the forest looks sparser, more Mediterranean.
  13. The railway closed before I was born but that was certainly the colour of the Lough Swilly buses at that time.
  14. It could, but because the conflict has changed orientation, from along a passing loop to across a switchback, two points would allow no simultaneous movement at all.
  15. Interesting to ponder why a passing loop needs just two points while this, a passing loop folded back upon itself, needs four.
  16. Four points, but minimally interesting for what it is - a switchback passing place
  17. An impressionist continental European micro layout (HO, 48 x 5 inches) Single railcar arrives at the platform across the second set of points, passing wagons unloading along the loop. Station and goods shed in a single range, weird looking hut, strange lamppost, puzzling signalling... Based on Fintona, which had a surprisingly continental trackplan...
  18. Building entrance, corner, converging tracks. I'm even seeing the track formation right there at the corner https://britainfromabove.org.uk/en/image/XAW027080
  19. As well as an entrance out of sight to the left, as indicated by the crossways setts, I think we can assume the tracks were further apart before converging to round a corner of some sort to the left (see 03:22 and 06:10)
  20. I notice the crossways setts seem to indicate a building entrance, another clue to add to the mystery photo.
  21. My favourite sidings, seriously, must be something to do with me arriving on the ferry at 9am with no sleep.
  22. Referencing in relation to this photo... Below looks a lot like the mystery location, it's between the two long sheds on the quay Below seems to be at the corner just north of the northernmost shed Both taken from here https://flickr.com/photos/librariesni/sets/72157632817125623/detail
  23. A particularly clear photograph here https://www.londonderryport.com/history-of-the-Port
  24. That tower is very distinctive https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@55.0033021,-7.321225,3a,75y,149.76h,85.33t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s1GKLFvAuTcg6SuFvGGbKBg!2e0!7i16384!8i8192
  25. Backscenes should be impressionist, and even hills and mountains need only cover a few degrees of arc
