Re: DB/EWS "Passenger" Train!

I believe Hornby released their new DVT in those colours a while back.

The signal box looks excellent and I'm sure your weathering will improve it even more.

Re: Dad-1 Workbench - West Bay Wagon Works

I don't really understand where these rumors of the Hornby GWR horsebox coming from the Lima model come from. When the Hornby model was released it was made quite clear that it was all new and having an example of the new model I can say that the detail is far superior to the Lima model. Anyway Geof...

Re: East Cheltwell

Re: Hornby HM2000 or something else?

I have a HM2000. I quite like it - it's very simple but seems to work well for what I want.

Didcot is great if you want to wander round a steam age shed with relatively few restrictions on where you can go.

Were they driven off the end of a motorail train? Or out of a side door which was not adjacent to a platform?
