The loco used to be the yard shunter locally at Staveley ...

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

Hi guys. The Sentinel has been put to work in PETERSDALE goods yard and is giving good service. Now I'm thinking of my next addition to the PETERSDALE rolling stock roster. DAPOL CLASS 121 'BUBBLE CAR' The Hattons bargain bug has struck again. I've been fancying a class 121 'bubble car' ever since i...

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

Hi guys. Well the Sentinal is back from the weathering works c/o Grimey Times. Pictures of the finished product below. Steve charged me £20 including return postage which I thought was reasonable for the size of the loco. Unfortunately there seems to be a lot of overspray on the back of the wheels s...

Re: Brake Tender For Diesel Locomotives

I bought a plain green one when this batch was first advertised. It was a 'nostalgia' buy. It reminded me of the Peaks on the parcels trains through Chesterfield in the early to mid 60s. They always seemed to have a brake tender on the front. I don't think many would have found there way up a branch...

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

Off to the Stafford show tomorrow if there's no snow overnight. I'm taking the Sentinel with me for Grimy Times to weather. Train from Northampton then shuttle bus to the showground. It's a good example of the crazy pricing on our railways. Day return with senior railcard £20. Two seperate single ti...

This is what i use in my CMX car and would fully recommend it, fantastic stuff useful for cleaning lots of other things as well Yep me to. Had my cmx about 2 years and have alwa...

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

I think that weathering came up spot on :D I especially like the 4MT. I think you nailed it with their placement in the photos mate. Thanks for the comment Josh. Yes, I think the 4MT is one of the best they've done for me. You do pay the price though but they are consistently to the same standard e...

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

Took the 20 minute drive up the A605 to the Peterborough show on Sunday. A nice show as usual with something for everybody. Like Warley it seemed as though there were more smaller layouts but it maybe just me. I was there from 10.30 till 2.30 and it was reasonably comfortable most of the times. I ha...

Re: All Change -- Well Not Quite!

It's the little cameos that make a layout interesting.
Where did you get the dog walkers if you don't mind me asking?

Re: BARGAINS!

So now we have Hattons 12 days of Christmas bargains. A different item offered at a 'bargain' price for just 24 hours. Yesterday it was a Bachmann OO Birdcage coach, today an O gauge GWR loco and tomorrow, who knows? Get your wallets out guys.

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

The weathering is spot on Pete, love the sulzer especially, I agree with you on Grimy Times weathering, they are at the top of their game and at good prices too. Really like your Sentinal, that will look nice weathered, never seen a clean one in any pictures I have seen of them, 'grubby and neglect...
