Sungwo Cheung : Glad to see Bob is still on duty.

r d : My " tidy up fairy" told me the problem is with the " messing things up gnome".

Calvin Witt : Proper job there mate! My only comment on the turntable is it would have been handy if you made a small "detent" for the ball bearing to roll into to help "locate" the turntable in action. Otherwise very cleverly done and it looks like it is serving the job it was intended for nicely!

Paul Mcguire : are you going to join your local rail road union or are you just going to scab it.

iheartigloos : I'm always in awe of the things you come up with and craft! It's awesome to watch it all come together : )

Eye Toldyoosso : Great design...I would put a sheet of rubber or something to keep the bottom steel disk from been on the concret floor all the time ...Water will get in there...may be a sheet of tin plywood, something

Kirsten Whitworth : I love, _love, _*_love_* the railway videos.

clanline35028 : Simplex engine here we come: (vague) Parts List: 1 small petrol engine 1 disused trolley 2 gears 1 length of chain

California 707 : That was amazing. You are a true craftsman. 👍

alco holic : genius at work, amazing stuff

gli Orti di Mauro : geniale, complimenti

camo hawk : now i want to make a mini railway on some property

kae4466 : i remember seeing small railroads (railways) like this where they were so small that the trains ran in buildings . i even saw one on a ship. they also used turntables like yours to turn or shunt instead of points in tiny places . (wharehouses , constructions sites , etc) job done.:) almost .

Stakman1-Stacey L : It seems it takes very little effort on your part to move the loaded trolley. Neat idea!

MrVailtown : Gald to see you back in action ! Well thought out n works smooth.

StreetMachine18 : I think one of the first videos i saw on this channel was of your railway!!!

Martian Anthropologist : That is a great idea. I think I'll put some plate steel in my giant CNC plasma cutter and pop one of these babies out this weekend... Easy peasy lemon squeasy.

GingerJames : Tim, You know you will be smiling when at 75 and you are still using this to transport the harvest into storage, what an energy (back) saver. Brilliant idea, great solution…. Now I see another video there I need to look at 😊 😊 Great work!!

Theorimlig : Ingenious and beautiful in its simplicity, like all your inventions (well, someone else came up with the railway turntable...but you made this one!).

RoseThistleArtworks : That worked out really well. You are so inspiring with all the things you invent. That whole railway system looks fantastic!

Alastair Chestnutt : Especially enjoyed watching your railway builds. Good job.

Ralph Allison : Nice work Tim. Now just need a locking mechanism!

jetownsend1 : The first video of yours I saw was on the "mangolator," and that made me subscribe. I have wanted a garden railway ever since. (And I don't even have a garden to put it in!) I'm really excited to see you continue to improve your rail system.

what a shambles : Worthy of a Thumbs up!!

Katie G : I so love seeing your low tech engineering at work. Simple principles that make your work a little easier. Just genius! But the project that taught me the most about the power of "using your head to save your feet" was the monorail.

billy19461 : Looking good!

Carsten Andersen : Very cool, thank you for sharing your story. God bless you and your family

Moreteavicar FromEngland : I'll send you the tidy up fairy over to your place ,when she done at mine !!
