Re: More eBay nonsense...........

It is deceptfully wrong to list something claiming that it is something that its not. Those "Cheap" coaches are certainly pretty impressive with flush glaze windows and metal 14mm wheels. I have two left for sale. The only real negative side to me is that they have the close coupling with ...

Re: Montfort's Bridge

Plan B looks nice. Interesting. Is the ST202 long enough to hold a loco?

Re: New layout

Has an interesting use of space. I rather like the idea as the way the buildings are tends to hide the oval look to it. Very well thought out.

Re: Little Stainsacre

You could do a layout like that Montfort. Something for your little 0-4-0's to get some exercise with.

Re: 8x4 roundy round

Very nice. Very well detailed. A mammoth task of a job to add interiors as well. A form of low relief interiors may help for the shop window displays. Its tempting to put lights in such delightful models, but then one may need to go the extra mile with the detailing.

Re: Montfort's Bridge

Relax Montfort. You have some excellent ideas and plans. Take your time. Think of it as a marathon rather then a sprint. Do a bit at a time. Dont rush. Have a plan of attack. :) You can do it! Try things you have not tried before. I think you will enjoy it. A hint. Not everything goes right. You nee...

Re: Montfort's Bridge

They really lifted narrow gauge track like that. Ex WW1 narrow gauge trqck was specifically built like a trainset so it could be lifted and bolted together. Some is embedded in concrete and is down Pembrey Country Park in Wales. It was made from sections like that and used with the old Royal Ordinan...
