Re: Millsend Layout - OO Gauge Sixties Midland

OMG Ex Pat is right, it is the mid sixties all over again, curious that both of us were modelling that period too! So sorry to see Millsend go, it is such an atmospheric layout, I hope that you can find something to fill the void that will be left. Have to admit that I have done the square root of n...

Consider yourself lucky, if this had been RMweb instead of NRMF they would have been round to your house last night with the pointy hats and ole' fiery cross :D

Punishment to fit the crime? Compulsory supervised attendance at a local model railway club and make them build a layout, let them see how much time and work is needed to create something to exhibition standard.

Re: Wheel cleaning

Got one, only use it if there is a bad build up of muck. Drawback is that is is next to useless to clean non-driving pickup wheels.

Re: Gaps in track

In fairness, the only photographs I have seen of this method are on partially completed layouts, i.e track laid and being tested, no scenic work done yet. Some folk prefer to do it this way then insert one or more sleepers (with the chairs sliced flush with the sleeper top) under the rails immediate...

Re: Gateside and Northbridge - a Concept I can not let Die!!!!

G'Day Gents Nice sized loft, but how high ?? manna Ah! there is the rub, the answer is - not very, approximately 4ft high, but I am used to scrambling about on my hands and knees in the old loft (thankfully without recourse to the Lotus position Timbersurf :D ) so I am not considering that as a sho...

Re: Gateside and Northbridge - a Concept I can not let Die!!!!

In the beginning the loft was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the rafters... Yet something is stirring!!!! IMG_20190705_185205.jpg Started to populate the loft with various boxes of materials etc. and get some flooring down, massive amount of work to do but Allenshaw was mo...

Re: Gateside and Northbridge - a Concept I can not let Die!!!!

Thanks everyone for the messages of support :) The garden is very small so putting in a hut of a suitable size is not possible, it needs to be the loft or not at all! Been playing about with a few doodles on paper and what seems the most obvious plan is to go back to basics with the Mk1 Gateside and...

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents Two updates in a week, he's either mad, busy or bored, probably the first :lol: . No the R1 has had a poor coat of paint, just because I wanted to see what it looked like !!

Re: Gateside and Northbridge - a Concept I can not let Die!!!!

Sorry but I just cannot let this one fade away, I gave a lot of consideration to joining a club but after discussion with Mrs Luckymucklebackit she actually encouraged me to look at building something in the loft - I think the idea of lots of weekend exhibition attendance had something to do with i...

Re: Bachmann 32-525ds deltic ticking sound when turned off

Think this noise could be quite prototypical, I remember looking at the lines of parked up class 37s at Motherwell shed from the B&Q carpark and the clicking noise was quite noticeable, seems to be something to do with a valve on a timer that bleeds water from the air system.

Re: Miniature Wunderland - Hamburg

I think you have totally missed the point I'm making, which was in response to previous postings that made the assumption that Miniature Wonderland was a model railway. Which it did start out claiming to be, or possibly you are unaware of its History ! Don't forget I've been living in Germany until...

Re: I'm assuming THIS is totally unfeasible, realistically ?

Entirely possible, I have a photo somewhere of a Railfreight Construction Sector liveried 47210 "Blue Circle Cement" leaving Millerhill Yard near Edinburgh on an ECS for an Inverness service, stock was Mk2, a mixture of Blue/Grey and Network Southeast! Then again it is his layout and rule ...
