Re: My Layout

Hi everyone, We went to a exhibition yesterday and bought some things for the layout so we did a little bit of work. Firstly, we got a length of flexi-track just to finish off some sidings which go behind the tunnel. We also got a deal on some Ballast, 4 200g bags for £5, which was quite good as one...

Re: My Layout

Hi everyone, I felt that I should only post one picture on as the others would be a bit boring, they are just some wires and I don't think many people would be interested in them. If you are, I'll put them up. There was one picture though, and that's the start of the tunnel construction. http://img1...

Re: My Layout

Hi everyone, Some more work on the layout has been done this weekend. Some temporary wiring work has been done on the layout, as we bought some scale lighting into the station.

Re: My Layout

Hi Everyone, Some more work has been made on the layout. We have managed to pin down the entire branch line to the extension and most of the extension itself. We did not pin the flexi track down, as it may need some slight changes once all of the buildings are on. Also, we have the wood for the rema...

Re: My Layout

Just a quick update,
We measured up for a extension at the weekend, just a small one behind the tunnel to make sure that no locos fall off!

Re: Update on 4472 'Flying Scotsman'

Another reason they did not choose to overhaul a different loco like Evening Star (Which I think the NRM have already said they won't run) or The Duchess of Hamilton is because people won't donate to see them running, where as alot more people will donate to see Flying Scotsman running.

Re: Update on 4472 'Flying Scotsman'

You'd think the NRM could take some care into the worlds most famous loco, some of the mistakes you mentioned are very bad, and insufficient project management, how could that happen on any loco?
