Re: Goatbridge, N.Yorks.

Here you are Alex, Princess Victoria. http://i819.photobucket.com/albums/zz117/Blue2MGB/Rail%20stuff/IMAG1368_zps84bbc86c.jpg http://i819.photobucket.com/albums/zz117/Blue2MGB/Rail%20stuff/IMAG1369_zps8ee3796b.jpg In other news, I've treated my Pug to a proper Hornby cab. My built one was just too t...

Re: Goatbridge, N.Yorks.

Soo... It looks like I've neglected my railway a tad recently. Life, a load of model building commissions, and lots of activity with the aircraft mean I've had zero time to devote to Goatbridge. I am easing myself back into it though, as the track hasn't been used for 3 months or so it's part way th...

Re: Goatbridge, N.Yorks.

Another loco arrived last week, in the form of a poorly pug. http://i819.photobucket.com/albums/zz117/Blue2MGB/Rail%20stuff/IMAG0933_zps37e89720.jpg I got it running, then set about making good the abuse the bodywork had suffered. Now I could do things the easy way and buy a new cab... But no. I cho...

Re: Goatbridge, N.Yorks.

I daresay the paints will be coming out soon for weathering up the coaches; they really do stand out as looking plasticky compared to the other coaching stock I have. But for the money I ain't grumbling, and they do run nicely!
Don that indeed be he! :D

Re: Goatbridge, N.Yorks.

...which never crossed my mind at all Don, noo! :wink: I've not much to report engineering-wise from Goatbridge, preparing our jet for an imminent run seems to be taking all my free time. I did find time to visit a car boot sale on Sunday though, and acquired some railway gear. More on that soon; fi...

Re: Goatbridge, N.Yorks.

A couple of new bits of rolling stock arrived this week. One was repainted in mucky NER colours, the other was restores back to a mucky version of its original Prime Pork colours to be added to my mrs' rake of PP wagons http://i819.photobucket.com/albums/zz117/Blue2MGB/Rail%20stuff/002_zpse13cf9dd.j...

Re: Goatbridge, N.Yorks.

The only work to report this week only indirectly affects the layout. After much wielding of a flamethrower by yours truly (a scary thought for anyone who knows me!) the flat roof above the layout is now hopefully watertight. After the recent heavy showers all's well, so fingers crossed we won't hav...

Re: Goatbridge, N.Yorks.

Don I'll have a look in Monk Bar's bargain bin next time I'm in town, see if there's a Notts fire engine in there for you. It's a new set of people Bachmann have released fairly recently I believe, schoolchildren and anorak-wearers engaged in the study of the Iron Horse. My Mrs found them highly amu...

Re: Goatbridge, N.Yorks.

So we're back up and running, so what's changed around Goatbridge? Not a lot. A few weeks ago the local fire service acquired a reasonably-priced fire engine (Monk Bar Models in York has a few on cheap if you're passing) http://i819.photobucket.com/albums/zz117/Blue2MGB/Rail%20stuff/IMAG0768_zpsfbd4...

Re: Goatbridge, N.Yorks.

If anyone is wondering as to Grahams lack of presence it us due to him currently being sans internet. Problems with connecting and the death of one laptop led to this. He is hoping to be back online after the weekend. jas.... :D Several weekends later... I'm back! :D Internet dongle thingy died, fo...

Re: Goatbridge, N.Yorks. The Scotsman cometh...

Another weekend with little time to do much railway related stuff. However I did snatch enough time to weather some of the cars up. As in real life everyone's cars are not exactly immaculate, I thought I'd start working through the vehicles of Goatbridge. first up, one of the Cortinas, the Imp and o...
