Re: Tonglington Abbey & St. Renock Quay Kato N Gauge Unitrack Layouts

A few updates. Firstly, my grandmother passed away on Wednesday after a 15 month battle with leukaemia, she was stubborn til the end, may she rest in peace. Secondly, its the start of summer/busy season at work so I'll be lucky to find time to even lurk on here, desperately need to finishing fencing...

Re: what do you hope to achieve from your model railway?

These days I have my 00 as a trainset, its a thing to set up, change round, run stuff, its mostly about seeing models running, its a fun thing (when its all working properly....a plain baseboard for mounting it to would be of an advantage though). I use N gauge for modelling because I can create fic...

Hey! £80 is £80 :P if they paid me to take the set and post it on social media I would, but only because I could reinvest the £80 in N gauge :mrgreen:

That's to avoid the big no no of advertising sugary products/toy products together these days perha...

Re: JAMES MAY'S BIG TROUBLE IN MODEL BRITAIN 06/03/19

Ah but up until a few years ago we never had mobile phones, tablets, X Boxes, Playstations and computers to spend hours gazing into, just give it time :wink: Ah yes but not all of us who grew up with those things persue (spelling?) them as much as adults. Half the time I use my phone/tablet for rai...

Re: Micro layout in O-16.5

Love the trackwork, makes me want to hack up some of my hornby settrack, but I lack the tools to make a decent job of it and I've enough on my hands as it is, looking forward to more pics of your progress.

Re: Tonglington Abbey - Kato N Gauge Unitrack in 4ft by 16ins

I am not very happy. I bought myself a locomotive on ebay, it was a real steal because of its previous cosmetic treatment. It was one of those "only post to uk" items so I had it sent to our DPD Parcel Wizard address. Now, I had in fact ordered some 00 items from Hattons second hand depart...

Re: Do the increasing prices of model railways effect how much you spend?

About the same, why? Well I'd say it's because my spending is more down to the rare occasions of having money to spend,I'll spend how I would normally spend, what I acquire is down to the price, but its not like i can really afford brand new stuff anyways, what I do invest in doesn't change much in ...

Re: Tonglington Abbey - Kato N Gauge Unitrack in 4ft by 16ins

My locomotives have no issues with the track, they just don't work very well in general. Alexander. When I tried N gauge I found I tended to be spending ages cleaning track and wheels. I also found this with H0e despite the high quality chassis. I found 00 gauge to be better, but surprizingly, sinc...

Re: Siddington Junction Locomotive, Carriage & Wagon Works

Were the the old Shredded Wheat coaches? Nope, They were four wheel GWR coaches, Farish did four wheel coaches in GWR, LMS, LNER, SR, CR and SDJR liveries in N gauge, these are quite hard to get and I was almost tempted to sell them on for an easy profit but decided I would rather repaint. The dema...
