Re: Gateside and Northbridge

Can understand your frustration Bufferstop - been there on that one. I was smitten by the large loft over our bungalow in UK and couldn't stop myself from embarking on an exercise of long straights and sweeping curves. As one season followed another I found it unbearably hot in mid summer and uncomf...

Re: Fishacre Railway, a oo layout

Good luck with your venture. I look forward to seeing the layout evolve. I am currently in my 15th year of development on mine (Clackwick). If I have learned anything about our hobby it is to sleep on any proposed activity for at least a few days before committing myself.

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

Some admirable scenes amongst your many photographs of Petersdale - thank you for showing them. You have also inspired me to get some of my locos off to TMC for basic weathering - my Christmas present to me!

Re: Clackwick Circa 1955

I didn't do too well in my search for additional props for the derailment scene. Model Scenery Supplies came up with a few items - "Trackside Junk" from Knightwing, "Engine Shed and Workshop Clutter" from GEM and "Wooden Crates" from Preiser. All very good finish, but n...

Re: Clackwick Circa 1955

Thank you for that, manna. There is massive free play on the middle set of wheels but, as you say, they are only there for the ride.

Now that Pennsylvania Railroad's T1 is what one might call a proper loco - you have any figures for it Chops?

Re: Clackwick Circa 1955

Kind words Chops - thank you. You are quite right re the tender centre axle splay, although I hadn't noticed it until you raised the matter. Had a close look at the tender this afternoon and was soon reminded that the motor needs to come out to access the tender wheels. Reflecting on the last time I...

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

Very interesting Robbo, and much food for thought. Think I might be about to get some of my locos weathered professionally …………

Re: Clackwick Circa 1955

Been mulling over what I should do next on Clackwick. Whilst filling in the odd half hour here and there bringing an open top Bristol Ledekka up to Jaywick local colour scheme (c 1950); I remembered a Hornby BR 75 Ton Breakdown Crane I bought new more than ten years ago - it had been languishing in ...

Re: So, My First Ever Layout Starts ....

Looks interesting BlueDay, and will take many back to the time of their own first layout. Look forward to seeing it develop. Good luck with your venture.

Re: Clackwick Circa 1955

I saved my video to Flickr (https://www.flickr.com/photos/165741652@N02/48768147971/in/dateposted-public/) hoping that it could be called up from this link for viewing, but doesn't work for me. Obviously I'm going wrong somewhere - can't use yahoo as Mrs B has an issue with them. All advice gratefu...
