Re: Gateside and Northbridge

It wouldn't be the southern coach would it Jim? He know he's wrong as he walks away whistling!! Jim :oops: It would :D But it is quite prototypical.

Re: Gateside and Northbridge

Not a lot of real progress last night, I made up a couple of templates for the sides of the shorter bridges over the Gateside Line and the Goods Lines, quite tight but everything fits.

Re: Hawick via Grantham, Inverness and SIAM (00 gauge DC)

Hi Ex-Pat - join the window frame masochists club :lol: I have lost count of the number I have made, they are not to terrible, it just gets tedious when you have to make several of the same pattern for one building.
