Henley: Stopped in its Tracks!

I run two 4x8 layouts, one North American, one British. The American one is called "Armadilloville" for its namesake armadillo, and the British layout "Henley." Sometimes I get so caught up in one, I neglect the other for months at a time. Life would be simpler if I had but one g...

Re: My layout so far

I will pay you a dollar to ramp up your best train at its highest speed over that bridge. Actually, we had a
lift gate on the triple main at the Club that got left up a time or two. The results were impressive.

Re: Dawn of a New Age: Henley 1828

I confess, the telephone and police box escaped notice until too late! My favorite thing is the Catford Urns, of which there is no such nonsense. I have a friend residing in Catford and so named in his honor, or horror, he has never told me. The Urns reflect the ongoing mysteries of archeology and h...

Did I mention how much I love the Oxford Rails Dean Goods? And the new Hornby Rocket set? These pieces are my newest
