Re: Anyone else a little bored with the model railway norm?

Hockney, noice. I like your taste. Could mesh very well with classic deco block colour posters.

Re: The NEW Wenchford Railway

Sir Nige looks great in that colour scheme. Wonderfully understated and elegant. Also looks quite similar to the colour scheme for the scotch I designed for a class in yr 12.

Re: Scale question: O gauge wheels and bogies?

According to Bigmet, the wargame, Warhammer 40,000, is S-scale. But for several reasons I will be using O-gauge track and mostly O-scale geometry, but with correct scale and accurately placed (after scale adjustments) handles, ladders, etc . Which should leave me with a rather broad gauged railway. ...

Re: Scale question: O gauge wheels and bogies?

Maybe a 6- wheel bogie? That way I could use them for well or flat wagons to transport tanks (or rather, cardboard ones hidden by tarps) and they wouldn't look out of place under a carrriage.

Re: Scale question: How tall is your average O gauge bloke?

Thank you! That will be handy if I do historicals. Or this: http://theminiaturespage.com/news/787475 . I saw somebody on the wargaming forum I frequent was planning GWR militia, but I'm not sure what came of that. But for Warhammer 40k I reckon O gauge geometry with S scaled seating and fittings sho...

Re: Fifey's (newly renamed) Rambling Layout Plan Thread

I was looking at C.J. Freezer's plan for Ramsgate Harbour, and I thought that would make a good quayside station for ship passengers. Instead of being surrounded by concrete, the station could be surrounded by water on two or thee faces. I am wondering whether that would be rather abnormal practice,...

Re: The NEW Wenchford Railway

Looks very impressive. Is it hand painted? If so, the paintwork is surprisingly smooth.

Re: dig up that furness!

I'm surprised son-of-triangman hasn’t said him and pops have one buried in the back yard of the shop. Wouldn't surprise me so much if he did have one. I am fond of telling this story, but Dad and I were going for a drive north of Mildura one day and found a late model Centurion in an old lady's s...

Interesting industrial and dockside railways?

I was looking at the latest surface freight issue of BRM magazine (December) and it has a rather cool dockside railway. The bottom right of which is a small concrete dock with inlaid rails and a cosmetic wagon turntable. I thought something like that would make for an interesting model, so I'm looki...

Re: N Gauge 4'x2'ish module, maybe LMS, ideas and advice sought!

Okay, after a bit more thinking, LMS is a bit silly. With the locomotives currently available, it makes far more sense to go for BR late steam. Same locomotives, more locomotives, similar livery, options for expansion into the diesel era, etc. While I don't quite know the length of a prototypical (o...

Re: Whissendine Junction 'N Gauge'

Why is that? You know you won't get distracted by an article?

The layout looks nice. It should end up rather pretty.
