Re: Old Wrenn loco

Hi
My original Hornby Dublo 3 rail version of this locomotive regularly runs. No problems what so ever. Do you know if Wrenn fitted the original type of motor to this model ?
Could you possibly attach a photo with the body removed ?

Re: A permanent 00 layout at last?!

Hi Alexander
That plan looks like a lot of fun to me. The basics of it are not that dissimilar to Little Weldon which I am really enjoying.

Hello all
Painting is on going up at Castle Hill. The Keep is the next piece that I have been working on over the last few evenings.

Re: New / Old - Little Weldon

Hello all I have started to paint the Bailey walls of Little Weldon's Castle. I have chosen to use acrylics for this. Due to the fact that the Castle has been cast in plaster these have a very rapid drying time, enabling layer upon layer of paint to be built up in rapid succession. The base coat I h...

Re: Folding Demo Layout

I created a HD 3rail layout on a board that folded in half that measured 5' x 3' when open. It was not however portable, but part of the living room furniture. The hinges were hidden in the Water Tower and part of the Roadway on the opposite side.

Re: UK or Bust 2020

Hi Chops That looks like a very comprehensive list of places you would like to visit. I think a must for you if you are planning to travel by rail would be to study the railway timetables. You may have to adjust some of your timings. Speaking as a Londoner born and bred there are many, many exciting...

Re: The Great Model Railway Challenge

Hello all Well the series has started and having now watched the first episode I must admit that I was not as engaged with it as I was with those from the first series. I thought that longer running time was primarily for additional adverts. Personally I thought that there was to much emphasis on th...
