Rosie's running at BHME part 3

As we cannot comment directly to photo/videos displayed in the gallery, I am commenting here.

In the video (Rosie's running at BHME part 3) is all that Rosie's track, and is that a double slip in the centre of the picture?

Impressive stuff.

Yes, it is a double slip, followed by a single slip. It is about all I could take, left 3 switches and about 150 metres of track at home... I took all this after positive replies to a picture I sent to the Minimal Gauge group of the three track terminus with return loop. All tracks come together, pass a level crossing and go into another - very basic - balloon loop

My latest creation, a 10 metre radius switch for Stoomgroep West Zuiderpark in The Hague, where I fell in love with 7 1/4" Gauge railroading 35 years ago. It is built in the same way as my standard 180 cm ( 6 feet ) radius points. This is the first one with this radius, it is on trial now before I will build the second, a left hander.

To see more action, watch my YouTube channel "Rosie Jane Bongers"

I am considering taking a similar layout to the AGM Gala

Thanks for all your hard work in bringing your complete railway to the minimal gathering, it is a fantastic setup and a great credit to your skills.

Hi Rosie,
Very impressive well done to you.I am just starting out in this scale after being in model railways for a number of years. Also I am an ex GWR girl.We have a 16mm portable railway as well. Now looking forward to receiving my first locomotive which is battery driven and track my partner purchased for me which we hope to collect the week after next. May i wish you good luck for The future.
My kindest and best regards,
Gloria.

Thanks George I will proceed with preparations. My aim is to bring rougly the same setup, but with my petrol mechanic as main traction. This will require a bigger load capacity trailer so this time it will be a braked one. Also a bit more straight track so the sidings can be a bit longer. I would like to hook up the circuit with a climber to the main track, so other NG drivers can enter my track in the same way as at the 2018 AGM.

At the Brighouse Minimal Gauge Gathering it was sadly not possible to hook up to the main track, the raised track was a major obstacle.

For those wondering how I managed to carry everythig, a snap of my car plus trailer just before leaving Ravensprings Park. After unpacking at home I added up all the weights and I was a little on the wrong side of load limits... The car didn't complain, did everything with ease.

Just one bit missing, I left the tram seat with gong on the platform... It has been recovered and now I'm obliged to attend the AGM hoping someone will bring it there for me.

Railrose,
Martyn has passed me the bell you forgot at Brighouse. Pleasse remind me early in the week of the AGM to pack it and I will bring it to you.
John
