Re: Pendolino in N - crowd sourced

Hello all,

The deadline for ordering this model has now closed. We'd like to thank all those who have supported us and helped bring this crowd-funded model to fruition.

Those customers who have pre-ordered models should be receiving them in the next 3-4 months.

cheers

Re: Cheadle Bay - N Gauge in the round

Hi McScooby, If you have a DMU in the new siding you could keep your seaside set in the main track as a "through" train and, after it's gone through the station and is hidden again in the tunnel, bring out the DMU into the station, stop it, then reverse it back the way it came, as if your ...

Re: Revolution Trains propose Class 320 & 321 EMU in N

Is there anyway to check what items one has registered for? I'm sure I expressed interest for a NSE class 321 but can't remember how many and would like to confirm what I entered. Cheers. G. Hello there, Just to confirm, the expressions of interest was purely to gauge whether the project should pro...

Re: Which Magazine for N-Gauge?

Hi there, Model Rail tries to put in more N gauge - recently it featured Paul Churchill's lovely Tormouth layout - and when the photographer came to take the pictures he was very complementary. I think the problem for MR is that none of the staff writers are N Gauge modellers, so they tend to rely o...

Re: Revolution Trains propose Class 320 & 321 EMU in N

Hello all, Further to earlier posts - though judging from lack of feedback I am not sure this is the right forum for this sort of posting - drawings have been received along with information from Eversholt and a visit took place last week to enable a 321 unit to be measured and photographed. Revolut...

Re: Horseley Fields - NGS area group layout (was Dibben Junc

Have to say, what a difference some non railway scenery has made. Now if you travel the line between Birmingham and Wolverhampton and keep a good lookout, both sides so take a friend, you will spot a number of galloping black stallions cut from steel sheet. Perhaps no longer quite so ironic, but at...

Re: Horseley Fields - NGS area group layout (was Dibben Junc

Hello all, Horseley Fields has been extended by 50% (in the scenic area) and now has an additional short Network Rail siding and a tram, based on the Midland Metro. The additional length allows more of a town scene to be depicted, with an office building, demolition site and former petrol station no...
