Re: Edgware GN,

Hi Coops, To tell the truth, I've never fully lined a loco, so there's got to be a first, I bought a lining (bow) pen a couple of weeks ago, so I'll give it a go, don't know if I'm any good :D

I'll give the coaches (mainline only) a primrose line in due course.

Busy days continue, fitted class numbers to coach doors, and have started to line the Ivatt Single, the transfers are very old, 35 years + and that's how long it is since I've lined a loco. Enjoy.

Very nice, you have been busy, I know it might not be prototypical, but a siding at the low level with the tracks set in the cobbles with a loco shunting a few wagons about, would look good :lol:

Hi Coops, I have seen it done with the Hornby Gresley coaches, so yes it can be done, and to almost change subject, you can do the same with, the Hornby LNER sleepers, they are based on a real Gresley sleeper twin.

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents Hi Jim. The older artic set, works wonderfully , some of my older curves were about 18 inches, and I've never had a problem, the new Green and Cream Tourist stock took a little bit of work to get right, I haven't tried the new set yet, still on the workbench.
