Re: Oxford Rail N7

I managed to take a couple of phone shots of the new N7 at the club the other night. Apart from its weight - which is considerable - the French Grey livery was also impressive. A really beautiful model. And at its discounted sub-£90 price tag, very good value. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7897/460...

Would love to see West Bay Geoff, but a bridge too far I fear! Have fun.

Re: Metropolitan Bo-Bo

If you are buying any to keep unaltered, those are the ones. The livery is really attractive and, on mine at least, well applied. I did change the roof vents however and reduced the coupling distance.

Re: Metropolitan Bo-Bo

If you’re not fussy, these coaches are a cheap alternative. The suburban Gresleys were just far too expensive.

Re: Steam Trains to Sovereign Street

Your L&Y fish and GN meat - are they card overlays? Tony Yes, Tony. I bought them off a company who sells them on fleabay. £1.99 for three different ones (incl. P&P). The T & J Harrison one (and others of members of my family) I printed myself. Glencairn I did wonder. These were also pr...

Re: Help required

When you say ‘what to do with it’, what exactly do you mean? Use? Sell? Photos would also help.

Re: West Bay Bridport - Club Layout

I have to say, I never complained! Maybe I should have.... My advice to anyone contemplating building a rake of Ratio 4-wheel coaches [and, indeed, their Toad brake van] is to buy the oldest productions that they can. By that I mean scour eBay for unbuilt kits in the older Sturminster Newton boxes, ...

Insufficient free play in the bogies or maybe the back-to-backs are out?

Re: Coopercraft OO wagons

Having followed this saga for some years through RMWeb, I wouldn’t buy a washer from this guy via the internet unless I had seen evidence of multiple orders being fulfilled and despatched first. Absolutely a case of ‘caveat emptor’ if I ever saw one. Purchase only face-to-face at exhibitions. The tr...

Re: Coopercraft OO wagons

This is a miserable and long-standing saga, fully documented in RMWeb.

Everyone has been strongly advised only to buy face-to-face and definitely not on line from the manufacturer (and I use that term in the loosest possible sense).
