Re: The Maidenfield Railway - OO - Modern, Diesel, UK

I was interested in the photos of the new HST, it really is an improvement on the old one. Yeah, though I still think the price is a bit too high... I was lucky and nabbed the new Virgin HST with DCC-fitted from Rails when it was £99. There's no way I'm going to pay more than £110ish for any othe...

Re: Chadwood - 00 loft layout

Hey

Love the tarmac car park and road. May I ask what materials you used for this?

Cheers

Re: The Maidenfield Railway - OO - Modern, Diesel, UK

Good news! With some nice weather a return to the layout. I've managed to re-lay almost all the track now, except for a few sidings in the TMD, which I can't redo until I find my soldering iron! I also spent some time running in a couple of locos and also finally getting round to putting a replaceme...

Re: The Maidenfield Railway - OO - Modern, Diesel, UK

Sadly progress on the main layout remains slow/nil. I continue to build up my rolling stock and loco fleet though, with recent Class 37 and Class 60 additions - plus a couple more mk3 trailers. Hopefully, as the summer arrives, I'll get stuck into the layout again.

Re: Hattons

I have started to go off Hattons. Phoning them up really makes you wonder... customer service... seems entirely non-existent. I think I shall be switching to someone else... even if it means paying a bit more.

Re: The Maidenfield Railway - OO - Modern, Diesel, UK

Exciting developments... look what arrived recently.... I have to say Hornby's new HST is _G_R_E_A_T_! My amazing girlfriend bought it for me (how awesome) -- for Christmas... and I know it's not yet Christmas yet, but she wanted to give me them before she had to head home, so here they are: http://...

Re: Levington DCC Layout

Those TTAs look great. Quick q: did you add any weight to them? I find that they are fairly light and when you have a long rake 1 or 2 can often derail.... ...or else my tracklaying is rather poor!

Excellent stuff. I've always been disappointed by the standard detail on the 90. So am keen to see how this turns out!!

Re: Longcroft

Only just discovered this thread. Have to say, like others have, that the space is brilliant and the BR blue looks fabulous too. I can't wait to see things develop further. I can't wait to see several HSTs in the station! Awesome!

Re: Ribbleshire- Dave "2"s OO gauge layout.

Looking good - particularly like the coal loads you produced a few pages back -- and the weathering of that loco looked pretty damn good. I still can't decide whether to have a bash myself on a loco, or just get them done by someone else... hmmm... perhaps I shd practice some more on old wagons...

Re: The Maidenfield Railway - OO - Modern, Diesel, UK

Two gronks arrived today - as did a new Shed. I felt it was time for a new video. Not the most exciting, but felt the arrival of 2 x Class 08s merited some fanfare - especially given how impressive the detail is on them... Well done Hornby! http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o181/maidenfieldrailways...

Re: Rhys' mid/late 90's Scrap terminal

This is excellent stuff... I especially like the textures and depth that you have created, e.g. the tarmac, the churned up mud, the overgrown undergrowth etc. Can't wait for the next update!!

Re: The Maidenfield Railway - OO - Modern, Diesel, UK

So, there has been some progress on the layout recently. I've dusted it off and started to re-lay some of the track that I had to take up to sort out some baseboard issues. I also got enough wired up again that I could send a loco round on the outer loop, with the following photos showing one of my ...

Metrocamel, Excellent stuff! Your layout has come a long way - totally awesome. Am hoping I might be able to make similar progress in the next couple of months... I particularly like the hard-standing you created. I will also probably be asking lots of Qs about the tufts of grass you have in the tra...
