OK It's 16mm/SM32, and it's not continental as such, however I would urge you to take a look at the photos. Interesting use of a 'pond mister' unit, which I had never thought of before. If you go to the photo 'archive' section, there is a pic of a model of a fireless loco, which was apparently 'charged' via a footpump!

Anyway, enjoy...

This is the guy who has a column in Garden Railways mag, something of an excentric I think.
Interesting never the less.

Very interesting.

So this year's must have gadget for the garden is a 'pond mister'.
I'm just comparing prices before I order but they're not silly money.

Here's one place that sells them.

Pond misters

In France they are called 'diffuseur de brume' but at first look are more expensive than in the UK.

I think it would look great, a thin layer of mist rolling over the tracks and a steam engine passing through......very ghostly.

Some of his photographs are very atmospheric, reminds me of going past Patent Shaft Steel Works on a foggy morning on the way to Collage in Birmingham on the old GWR line from Wolverhampton to Birmingham Snow Hill.

I thought excentric was par for the course.
