Whist watching an 80s Top of the Pops earlier, I was (unfortunately) reminded of:

Please do, Mike.
If there's one thing I love more than trains, it's buses.

Re: Wordsworth - 00 Loft Layout

Looking very nice indeed, Mike!
It's all coming together very well; I particularly like the bus depot and church, and yes, even the roadworks!

I see the Doctor has dropped by, although his gift to the people of Wordsworth will play havoc with the Council's flower beds!

Re: Picnic Creek - An US N gauge train set

One doesn't (seem to) see many US-themed layouts on here, more's the pity...
There is some rather impressive modelling here; ranging from those buildings, to the main boulevard, to those wonderful lighted classic automobiles!

One to watch, methinks... Bookmarked.

Re: Rowenwood

Filthy, neglected, and oozing atmosphere! That last overall shot is just how I'd imagine a branch-line terminus to look, just before Beeching brought down his axe. Very nicely done. P.S. Don't worry about asking "stupid questions" - The only stupid question is the one that goes unasked! We...

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

Interesting trackplan there, Blueday, and what seems to be acres of space!
Will it be DCC or DC controlled?

Re: The Great Model Railway Challenge

Indeed, DRM. Why the programme needs these two lame ducks is anyone's guess - Their sole purpose appears to throw in a few equally lame jokes or puns here and there. Despite the aforementioned idiots, I am enjoying this series so far - The use of a teatowel to create that landslide in Ep. 1 was, IMO...

Re: Gaps in track

Thanks Halstead.
I only have two 0-4-0 locomotives, a tiny wee Caledonian 0F and a strange-looking Lima USA type, which isn't really an 0-4-0...
Incidentally, the loco fleet has grown somewhat since that photo was taken in 2008; there are currently several more on preorder.
