Re: Tilley Yard South, Chicago, Winter 1956

I'm sad to see you not not owning this layout anymore, but completely understand your reasons for selling. It would be good if you can keep hold of one or 2 items of rolling stock, for when you're in a better place and can return to the hobby, but that of course is a personal decision. Thank you for...

Re: Bufferstop's Bench Confessions of an Unrepentant Basher

Alas, I only have a Samsung S3 mini at my disposal, (hence the poor pics on my own threads,) but I may have to try anyway, see what I end up with.

I wish I had access to a scanner, I have every book published on the W&U line here, I could send you plans if only I could transfer them from my book to my pc.

Re: Bufferstop's Bench Confessions of an Unrepentant Basher

If you can get yourself to the North Norfolk railway, one of these coaches still exists there, so you don't have to settle for a similar style :)

Re: Bufferstop's Bench Confessions of an Unrepentant Basher

I love your version of a W&U bogie coach, I keep wanting to make one of my own as I cannot afford the brass kits, (assuming there are any left) but my sticking point atm is working out how to recreate the vents etc above the side windows. I don't think I'd be happy with any thing I could come up...

Re: Gantsville - Building an HO Inglenook

Just a small update, I've been playing with creating a row of bushes along the back, but I'm not sure if I'm happy with it or not. https://image.ibb.co/i1BCfw/Gantsville_bushes.jpg I need to trim some more of the hair that's poking out and there will be a row of trees in front of this so I'm not sur...

Re: Gantsville - Building an HO Inglenook

They're some good looking trees, I really need to get on and add some foliage to my 2 tree armatures I have here. There always seems to be something else taking up my time though.

Re: Gantsville - Building an HO Inglenook

All updated now with pictures reinstated, apart from the previous post, which I shall update after I've had some food. Thanks to having all these pictures in a single file on my pc, uploading and replacing the links wasn't too difficult, although I do feel sympathy for those with hundreds or even th...

Re: Budgetbrooke

I cannot thank Matt enough for what he's done here, I thought these would be lost forever. I am in the process of setting up alternative hosting, which I shall try and update Gantsville with, later this evening.

Re: Bachmann Junior diesel

How would £30 including postage sound? It's as new, I've never run it apart from a brief test to make sure it works. This was on DC as I don't have a dcc controller to hand atm.

Re: Mumbles Workbench

It's the initial outlay for a spray gun and compressor that worries me, especially if I don't get much usage out of it.
