Re: Mail train help needed

Unlined maroon/crimson is another possible. The model of the great train robbery had a plain LMS BG. https://youtu.be/l2WTXysSiYE

Re: I wonder what George & Robert would think now?

I once saw an article that stated that George Stephenson would have been totally a home with a BR standard Steam Locomotive built in the 1950s, but would be totally baffled by anything built today.

Re: Edgware GN,

Layout is looking good Manna - looking forward to see the shed complete, should be impressive with your collection of locomotives.

Re: Gateside and Northbridge - It begins at last!

One of the issues I am coming up against in this build is that 19th century Cottage Roofs are not the geometrically exact pieces of construction that I am used to. Each of the last three loft layouts have been built between factory manufactured "W" framed trusses, and these have reasonabl...

Re: Complete numpty modeller here.

Hi Peter - welcome to the forum, it would be good to see some photographs or a plan of the layout, mind you some newcomers find that a bigger challenge than building the layout!

Re: Is it ok to mix Era

Another approach is to scan through time. I start with an all-steam railway, and progress through the seven year transition of withdrawals of both steam locos and older stock, with corresponding introductions of BR diesels and stock, until we reach the point where the process is near complete in 19...

Re: The Purist

I followed the link back to that BNS thread and his parting comment was "What I will say is that when I have finished I will post the photos and anyone will be welcomed to come and check the model. To the rest who had a little belief in me thanks for the advise." Four years on and no photo...

Re: First generation railway track...

Has anyone here made a facsimile of early British railway track in any scale? My understanding is that some of the earliest Stephenson era track was laid upon granite blocks. I would be most curious and appreciative of anyone’s handy work With first gen British steam. Nearest I can think is the lat...
