Re: Edgware GN,

G'day Gents The J5 that featured on page one, manna Is that it on the far left at the buffer stops?

Re: Any recommendations??

Kernow at Guildford are about the same distance - although it probably boils down to what you consider to be a "good model railway shop" - it depends on whether you are looking for a trainset shop, a bargain shop for rolling stock, or a serious kitbuilders/scratch materials shop etc.. This...

Re: Highland Railway Buildings

Thanks TomTom - I'd say that's good advertising for Wills Coarse Stone sheet - must inspect it closer next time I have an exhibition I can make it to.

Re: Highland Railway Buildings

Very interesting and commendable stuff.

The platform edging really takes my eye (particularly when magnified) - how did you do that?

Lucky you Alex - some people are happy to shell out extra for those smoke effects!

Anyway well done in fixing it, and best of luck with the re-opening.

Re: Layout in progress - Name undecided

Some of you may have seen my thread in the planning forum, I finally managed to make a start on it a couple of weeks ago. I can't quite decide on a name at the moment, it will include either 'Fetton' or 'Fetham', but whether its street, road, junction, station, yard etc I can't decide. With the she...

Re: Edgware GN,

I've always considered the C12 as the most graceful tank engine, and even obtained a Skinley drawing and some driving wheels at one stage before I dropped the idea of Grantham.

There's just something about 4-4-2 tanks that appeal to me, and yours does.

The shadows on the water and wall in the penultimate photo really make it one that could fool many people in an identity parade of real and model photos.

Re: Michaela's Layout

That's a lovely "clickety-click" over the points around about 50 to 53 seconds in.

The J11 sounds get my vote.
