Re: A slice of Akihabara with a serving of London.

So I have actually managed to get something productive done after just playing trains lately, I have managed to make some back scene templates, I will use these as a guide for the actual wooden back scenes. http://i1279.photobucket.com/albums/y537/swiftdeere/DSCF3044_zpsajsitdcq.jpg http://i1279.pho...

Re: Hornby's next great thing.

Shame about the defects, the 91 looks nice on its own, the other locos am not so sure.

Re: Hornby's next great thing.

That's a nice build.
Previously unfamiliar with the Matchbox system. The 91 and road switcher set looks as if they wanted multiple markets with minimal effect =p

Re: Hornby's next great thing.

Marklin do a similar product range, which has quite a few items in it. Marklin version has points and, more importantly, IR control for the loco. Hornby is way behind the wave, here. (Drowning, not waving?) Better at the technology level, and almost certainly more fun for toddler+ age kids would be...

Re: LNER Dyno car from Rails/Rapido

At £125 I'll pass, Ive never spend river £100 on a locomotive.
Good to see Rapido expanding their UK range, just wish they would go it alone rather than doing commissions.

Re: UK Right hand drive Bus in HO

Japanese HO busses are 1:80 and right hand drive, so whilst not perfect its closer than the 1:87 left hand

A slice of Akihabara with a serving of London.

I have finally started my new layout (Well I started a few weeks back with the construction of the baseboard). The project is a simple N gauge duel loop as space is quite limited. It will be split into fives separate scenes, Two "long scenes" (using the straight track parts of the layout) ...

Re: Model Railway TV Development Programme -

Still very vague detail wise what they are trying to achieve (not the fact of what they are doing) but the format of the show. Is it just a bit of fun? Is it a serious attempt? Who are the audience they are aiming for, is it pro the hobby or are they poking fun at trainspotters?

never mind, silly question. It just looks very small even at the larger scale.


Its does yeah lol, but it seems wider next to the SD45. The SD45 is a very tall beast so it really makes it look small

A few weeks back I managed to pick up four of the N gauge societies kits (2 Shark Brake vans, one SeaCow and one polybulk grain wagon) up for £10 for the lot, so being so cheap its a good chance to practice my kitbuilding skills. First up was the first Shark Brake wagon: http://i1279.photobucket.com...
