Very good. Had I a need for a turntable this would be a very good way of doing it. Like the carriage shed!

Re: Rail suspension bridge

It might be an interesting project to use the Horby piers and deck in conjunction with scratchbuilt parts to create something more realistic. While something like the Tamar bridge is possible, a steel arch would be a more common type. Or there's always the tubular type, like the Conway or original B...

Re: OO Gravel Pit

I would highly recomend both the Norscot & Motorart brands for these construction vehicles, They're marked up on box as 1:87 but I reckon they easily pass for 1:76. It shouldn't be too hard to look some of these vehicles up on the Internet. For example, the JCB 3CX has a wheelbase of 7ft 1in/2....

Re: Planning Help

Your picture doesn't seem to be showing, unfortunately. There are many places where narrow and standard gauge meet so there's no reason not to have the two together on a layout.

Re: Tallylyn Railway

If you're going to try building a double Fairlie it might be an idea to build 'The Square' (Earl of Merioneth) - The tanks are relatively boxy and bulky and there's no kit anyway. Of course, the wheels should really be larger, but that applies equally to all those Langley ones out there, so I wouldn...

Yes! A useful hidden gem that one - in service mid-'30s to early '80s so it should please a lot of people. It's likely that some of the design work from the NGS inspection saloon has carried over.

I think that's the powered axle, the others are unpowered bogies. I'm not 100% sure, but I seem to recall they did an InterCity 225 set as well - this would have been in circa 1990.

Re: Code 55 vs Code 80

You can always use the code 80 in the fiddleyard as the two types of track can easily be joined.

Re: Freelance petrol railcar

Sounds like the coach may have come from the Thomas & Bertie 'race' set. These ran on plastic guide rails unrelated to the normal Hornby, but the coaches did feature four compartments, rather than the three in standard Hornby 00 sets. I can see what you mean about the ends - the Ryde Pier trams ...

Re: Freelance petrol railcar

Ingenious use of the brake van roof to give the rainstrips. Did you have to cut out the windows yourself or were they already moulded open?

Same for 'Jaffa Cake' livery too and the first refurbished units were in blue/grey, so they were around a long time.
