G'Day Gents.

You could have part of one wall as near new brickwork, indicating bomb damage, wall repaired, roof not.

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents Still working on the station, built the canopy on the platform side, sorry no pics yet. But I have started another loco, I have a C12, in brass, I've re-wheeled it and fitted a new motor but it's always been a bit of a rough one, so while I was fiddling with it the other day I gave the c...

Re: Millsend Layout - OO Gauge Sixties Midland

G'Day Gents Congratulations on getting you layout into a magazine, I'll keep and eye out for it, 'But' they often take six weeks to get here and are a bit hit and miss, the great benefit of our Forums, is not only we get to see your layout, we also get to see you build it, something they don't show ...

Re: Edgware GN,

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents I said to Ex-Pat that 2018 would be the year of the station, and seeing as I started it 'Years' ago I thought I'd better finish it, one of the main problems is that the central building (Booking hall) had warped in the heat, it reached 46c in the shade, probably near 65c + in the sun, so...

I see the tea chests are marked Produce of Sri Lanka, but when did Ceylon become Sri Lanka, that was in 1972, so steam would have been gone for five years !!!!!
