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

A great idea from TMC offering the two different weathering options, and they both look good. Thanks for posting Robbo, I think TMC may be getting some business in the not to distant future.

Re: Wandle Park

While looking back through this thread the other day, I noticed that it has been 11 months since I did any work on the large factory building - talk about getting distracted! So, after evicting a spider who had taken up residence on the ground floor, I got on with the north-light roof. A very time c...

Re: Hattons Announces 4 and 6 wheel coaches

Great idea from Hattons, although it's odd that there are no LBSCR liveries listed seeing as there are three LBSCR livered RTR loco's available at the moment (4 if you count the many second-hand E2's out there).

I downloaded a plan to make an applicator using an electric fly swatter, which looks like it could work. Trouble is, I can't find an electric fly swatter! :?

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

Lovely weathering on that 8F. Out of interest, what sort of prices do TMC charge for their weathering service?

Re: Wandle Park

Thanks Dublo. I thought the same when I saw the kit. I have no idea what station Scalescenes based this on, but it does have that Southern feel about it. Progress has been swift on this model due to me being rained off work for two days and my other half being away on business - while the cat's away...

Re: Abandoned Railways and Cyclepaths

The nearest to me is the Cuckoo Trail which follows the course of the Polegate - Tunbridge Wells line, although it ends at Heathfield as the trackbed beyond there is mainly privately owned. The Worth Way/Forest Way runs from Thre...
