Re: Edgware GN,

Well your results for a first time look great so far and I will be looking forward to seeing your results with the bow pen. It is somthing that I have thought about but also know nothing about at the same time, so it would be good to know the product you use and show us all your handy work when you ...

Re: Edgware GN,

The loco looks great and the lining brings it to life. Do you plan on lining out the coaches, and if you do what's your preferred method?

Re: Derby Friargate LNER Garage Layout

Hi mana, yes it's a great picture, I have a framed copy my self, I had the pleasure to meet the artist a few years ago at the Midland rail ex. Funny fact, I actually used that picture as the basis to scratch build my friargate bridge. I traced the span from the right to half way then doubled that ov...

Re: Derby Friargate LNER Garage Layout

Timbersurf Thank you for your comments, the walls are a bit of a bash from left over Wills retaining walls, all that was used were the pilar sections and the coping stones. The walls them selves are Wills english bond brick sheets cut to size and double backed. Once the glue was set I added the curv...

Re: Derby Friargate LNER Garage Layout

I took a steer away from the shop build to actually start some scenic modelling which was great although in the very early stages. I decided to pick a corner and expand as I go building what I need to complete each area. Hopefully this will prevent me experiencing what I normally do when I go in the...

Re: Edgware GN,

Nice coaches, I have got one of the kirk kits for the artic twin still to do, I was wondering if it would be easier to bash two hornby suburban teaks together?!? I do worry how it would ride, so it's nice to hear yours navigates ok.

Re: Galgorm Hall 00 Gauge Loft Layout

Another great looking bridge, you certainly have the knack of the weathered stone. I look forward to seeing it bedded in to the embankment with scenics.

Cheers

Re: Alex3410 - My Railway

Hi, great stuff going on here, and I echo what you say about flat surfaces ha. I notice that you are using the Hornby viaduct / arches. I really like these and think that they look so much better than card. I have used them myself. I have also noticed like me you have got a cross over on it. I have ...

Re: Edgware GN,

I really like the look of the WW1 livery. Even though some may say it is quite drab, I think it is quite attractive, I was once considering doing it to one of my J6's (J22) but would be totally out of era. Maybe a flash of Humbrol Saturn enamel varnish will do the trick for the coach. Depending on t...

Re: Millsend Layout - OO Gauge Sixties Midland

:shock: jim again fantastic build and detail. The prototype that I will be modelling is also a bit of a mystery interns of how the coal was moved. I can only presume either a similar method to yours or a hoist crane. The one in slack lane had a level road for the wagons with coal to the engine that ...

Re: Derby Friargate LNER Garage Layout

Thank you Timbersurf, yes it is an eye catching livery. Makes a nice contrast to the Grey and browns of most NE wagons. The blue was for district engineering stock under the LNER. I don't have a rail crane but I have brought the trackside Ruston Bucyrus LNER Skimmer which will make a great addition ...

Re: Derby Friargate LNER Garage Layout

It's been a long time since my last post so a small update. Taking luckymucklebackit's. Advice I have completed a few small projects to share just some of them. I have completed the engineers train, consisting of an ex NER brake van (in place until I can find the GNR ballast brake van), two GN balla...

Re: Galgorm Hall 00 Gauge Loft Layout

Haha Paul with regards to your reply to my last comment, I will put together an update soon with all the little stuff I've been doing, but regards to your tunnel it looks really good at this stage. Had you considered using the Wills kit for a tunnel mouth or do you have a specific design or prototyp...
