Crikey, that's a worry. A 'gronk' sound is remarkably like the sound an engine makes when it snaps a crankshaft Shocked

English Electric diesels have a weird sound to them though no two diesel engines (Motors) make the same noise. A 900 class SAR has a weird thumping and whistling sound when under load and the small shunt engines make all kinds of weird noises at times. At times it sounds like a piston is ready to come out of the block almost depending of course on how well they are maintained.

They have a sound all of their own like Alco's do some seem to emit a deep growl when throttled up and some simply just sound the same almost but at a higher pitch again depending on condition. EMD's to us sound foreign to SAR enthusiasts.

Nice job on the water tank as well

No real progress on the new layout since it was last mentioned here but that will change significantly after this month with two weeks leave from the employer to include at least one full working day to get it wired and track laid.

On the other hand the existing layout continues to give me (and a good many others) plenty to enjoy

And away from the trains which other hobby could ever offer us weathered pumpkins???  There's a "pristine" one plonked in shot for comparison as well.



And if small is beautiful then bear in mind these chooks are about 4mm in size Wink

We do indeed still keep "12-eggs-to-the-barn" chooks outside.  I guess that's the nearest thing to "12-inches-to-the-foot" in their case!

Nice touch - industrial archaeology 8)

What about railway archaeology though? I've never seen that in anyone's layout that I can recall....

Coming soon(ish... as time permits).  I've had in mind for a while now to do a layout focused on a junction of a re-aligned section of railway incorporating both the main operations on the new track and heritage operations on the old alignment.  Layouts have been sketched, modular basebords are being cut and assembled now.  I'll post some photos when something worth photographing is available.  I intend to incorporate some disused remnants of the past into the near-junction parts of the old line.  Stay tuned.

Hi Pete - what are you using for your ballast?
  sarail Chief Commissioner

Location: Redwood Park, Adelaide, South Australia
Ballast is sieved dollarmite fines (about $6 for a massive 40Kg bag from my local landscape supplier). I then airbrush it with various Floquil paint to colour it to suit the location.

Its a bit of work to seive the fines out, but sure beats paying $25+ for the woodlands scenics stuff!
