Re: Sarah's Workshop....

Looking good, that mineral wagon has just the right amount of weathering for my taste, just what I need on my small rake of 3 in fact :)

Re: Gantsville - Building an HO Inglenook

I'm thinking of going with the medium option, it's what I was considering originally, but wanted to see what other people's thoughts were before committing myself. As for what to mount it on, I still have plenty of the 3mm thick closed cell insulation foam I purchased a couple of years back for Budg...

Re: Gantsville - Building an HO Inglenook

More of a theory based post this week as I have been taken in by a couple of Udemy courses to improve my skills and career prospects going forward, but I was thinking about the building required on Gantsville. A long time ago I showed off a Muir Models kit and I would like to begin building it in th...

Re: Gantsville - Building an HO Inglenook

I do need to dust the trees and bushes in more autumnal colours to match the leaf fall on the floor, the hedge at the back I am still undecided about. It was an experiment in what's possible for as little financial outlay as possible, the blitzed up sponge is still too coarse for my liking, but unti...

Re: Gantsville - Building an HO Inglenook

Welcome to 2018 and a tentative attempt to post something at least once a week somewhere on the forum, (either here or in the Budgetbrooke thread, (depending on geographical location of what I've modelled). So, without further ado, here's some poor photography and accompanying words. The first thing...

France is a bit of a long way to go, just for some cork rolls, but a great start you've made :)

Re: Changes to Glencairn Scholarsgate.

That street certainly works for me, really flows and makes you want to explore round the corner.

I'm guilty of a few of those rules then Jim, although I'd probably break international rules, had I been able to connect the Alco S3 up as well :)

Re: NRM 2017 00 'Tour' STARTED

Thanks guys, my W&U based layout is in no fit state for a photo shoot, (not to mention no fit place for a Class 60, even a 20 would be pushing it,) so Guy had to visit Gantsville, but I had to draft in some familiar stock so he wouldn't get too scared and blow his top :)

Re: NRM 2017 00 'Tour' STARTED

Well, after a long trip and visiting a couple of yards along the way, Guy found himself arriving at Gantsville, hauled by 60008 and a couple of barrier wagons. https://image.ibb.co/k2Th76/guy1.jpg https://image.ibb.co/i7UYEm/guy2.jpg After detaching from the rear vans, Guy was pulled forwards to rel...

Re: NRM 2017 00 'Tour' STARTED

My only concern with a full size coach is that postage bumps up once you get above 30cm in length I think, otherwise, a new Norma would be welcome.

Re: NRM 2017 00 'Tour' STARTED

The issue with a loco, (even a cheap one,) is that some people run on DCC and it's not advisable to run DC locos on these layouts for any great length of time, indeed some controls I believe do not have a DC channel. I do like the idea of a coach that we populate, a hornby 4 wheeler would be ideal
