Boston Frodsham

Postby mikeknowles » Sat Sep 26, 2020 2:29 pm

I just wanted to record my thanks to Andy York of BRM/RMweb for letting me use the video of the interview with me that he recorded at the Festival of British Railway Modelling when I exhibited the layout there last February.

Mike

Nice to see some of the details of the stock as well as the layout video. Which bogies have you used for the Clay Tiger wagon please?

Thanks

Jeremy

Very nice, Mike. I was particularly impressed by the water, which is at least as good as anything else I've ever seen, and the timbers round the swing bridge which were perfectly weathered. The rest of it was excellent too!

Hello David, many thanks for the kind comments. As I mentioned in the video I'd never modelled water before and it certainly gave me the jitters when I eventually got round to doing it on the layout, even though I'd experimented with several test pieces before!
