Re: Have just joined today!

If I might make an observation concerning your website and exhibitions. You mention Rainford Stoops, should it be Rainhill Stoops. To the best of my abilities in remembering the exhibitions that I have attended in Rainhill they were not held in the Stoops but either in St Anne's Church, in the early...

Prescotian, I wonder if you live or come from the good old Prescot town of Lancashire.
Yes I have just looked at your website and the answer is yes you do. Huyton station closed in 1958 and is long gone now. I am an old Whistonian, well someone has to be.

Re: Foxshaw Gardens Amusement Park

As well as impacting on my vintage vehicles this rebuild has also affected my main ‘OO’ layout. I had to move my controller nearer to the park so I had to rewire my main OO layout. I was using all 4 track controls and I had decided that the OO9 layout would also be controlled by the main controller....

Re: Foxshaw Gardens Amusement Park

Slowly moving on.The very first ride that I bought way back in time was the Galloping Horses, however this was not motorised. Next was the Ferris Wheel, this was motorised. I also had a go at making a Helter Skelter from a free PDF file online, not sure if this is still free or not. FGAP - 08.jpg Th...

Re: Foxshaw Gardens Amusement Park

Yes almost a clean slate but it will be a similar layout, having more rides and without the vintage vehicles. They have been moved to a new extension on the main layout in the form of a field to create ‘The Village Diecast Rally‘ I will post a photograph with my next update shortly.

Foxshaw Gardens Amusement Park

FGAP - 00.jpg I thought it was about time to let you know that I have not been completely idol with my layouts. Although I must admit my son most of it, the ‘fiddly’ stuff, it is well beyond me now. I had kits that needed to be assembled to add to the park, but it was beyond me to do it, so as usua...

Re: Steam Trains to Sovereign Street on a 1914/1919 theme

Ahh, Another question. How long is "Some time" Geoff T 3-4 years on some locomotives. Glencairn Well I am not saying how many locos I have but the number must be greatly excessive if that is one of our unwritten rules. I don't think I have ever come across the rule before stating how many...

Re: Anyone currently buying?

BCF 01.jpg BCF 02.jpg   Ever since starting the garden railway my son and myself have always liked the LGB Mallet loco sets with 2 carriages. Unfortunately they were far too expensive for us. I did however manage to get a second hand loco as seen in the picture. I suppose that I had given up on the...

Re: Hattons closing down

Since they moved to Widnes, I haven't really shopped with them. It's a place that I have heard was not really welcoming to personal shoppers or browsers. I don't have transport and it well out of town and hard to get to so I never visited it, there is Widnes Model actually in Widnes town. I remember...
