Re: 2018 Forum Competition: A Picture Frame Shunting Layout

The bushes look really good, reminds me instantly of brambles :D
Tree's are usually fixed by drilling a hole in the layout/scenery and just slotting them in.

Re: Lumsdonia Wagon stock

It seems my collection of 1200 (known) wagons always causes raised eyebrows, I have 49 (catalogued) guards vans. As mentioned in Petersdale thread So I will take the opportunity to explain the philosophy. I might have too many! I went mad on ebay about 15 years ago and bought many cheap lots, some o...

Re: Doing some research

Do railway modellers consider themselves as collectors or hobbyists? Do you purchase railway models online? If not why not? Do you visit model shops, if so what for? Community / Socialising / Shopping? Do you buy any magazine related to modelling? Some just put boxes on the shelf never to be opened...

Re: The story of PETERSDALE my OO gauge Branch Line layout

Future rolling stock purchases are definitely going to be something unusual that are different. £23 for a brake van!!!!!!! That's scary!

Re: Road surfaces for 1920's-30's

I use fine grit carborundum emery paper and paint grey. My sidewalks are paper that is a design I have created myself and printed. The white lines are nail art tape !
