Re: The Strategic Reserve

Given that a 'strategic reserve' would require a very low humidity with preferably high temperature environment, I daresay such a situation would not exist in the UK. The speed with which the Beeching axe occurred I really cannot see a decision being made to save any steam locomotives for future de...

Re: Awkward....advice needed

Hi Dan The engine shed could become a truck / HGV MOT station cum garage with the nearby disused station, where the tracks have been removed being used as a Freight depot for loading of trucks from the platform. Or possibly a timber merchants / sawmill where indoor storage is not required ? or leave...

Re: Work Table

Thanks all I was not intending to drill on one table (have the outlaws workshed with pillar drill and bench for that :-) ) was thinking more of card / plastic kit modelling, buildings mainly. I take the point about the fold in the centre, so maybe it's round the car boots to see what I can find, alt...

Re: only the british

That really is a faux pas, sounds like someone in their marketing dept has said oh well that will do no one will notice. Pre net days it may well have been only spotted by eagle eyed people like tornado64 giving them a private chuckle, but in these net savvy days of instant and widespread communicat...

Work Table

Hi All I am looking for a fold away table to use as a work table for kit bashing etc. I did find this table on Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/Redstone-Folding-Trestle-Adjustable-Height/dp/B000ZJ34Q8/ref=reg_hu-rd_add_1_dp that looks like it could fit the bill, however before parting with the readies...

Re: 6 X 4 - 00 Gauge Terminus

Hi Doug I like it :-) Can see the reasoning behind the single line from fiddle yard to the station, after all the station area is the 'action end' of the layout, layout doesn't need double tracks. Whynot - I have noted what you have said about insulfrog points, think I will try the layout without th...

Re: 6 X 4 - 00 Gauge Terminus

Thank you for your comments John It has certainly been a struggle, I started work in 1979 and have only ever been unemployed for 2 weeks before being made redundant this year, so can't say it's something I am used to. Am waiting to hear about a position on Monday so fingers x'd would be good to get ...
