Re: Dad-1 - Workbench - West Bay Wagon Works

Hi 6C, Being mischievous I'd probably say I'd modified by shortening 1.0 mm and asking why they couldn't see that ? Unless of course you'd said it was from the box. It reminds me of an aircraft modelling event. Someone was looking at my Matchbox F5 - somewhat modified and their comment was it so muc...

Re: Hornby 6 pin decoder problems

Regardless of the price I'll keep
to Lenz silver mini - Just over £30
for quality and sensible replies from
them if you encounter any problems.

Re: Dad-1 - Workbench - West Bay Wagon Works

Does it really matter THAT much ? https://i.ibb.co/bK9vVQy/IMG-2978.jpg This was an unpainted Dapol gunpowder wagon that I'm doing in BR markings, although some of that is guess work! Mind you the colour seems more suitable for LNER. During my limited research I find that virtually all later gunpowd...

Found easier that I thought.

Re: Ex-Cambrian Railways Composite coach

Hi Tony, Somehow missed your question ref West Bay. There is a GWR Brake coach at West Bay with the interior fitted out for dining, kitchen in the old station buildings. A somewhat more modern one than these. I do/did have some photographs from when it was delivered. I'll see if I can find one and a...

Re: Michaela’s workbench, building buildings

Go for it !

That already reminds me of Yorkshire - Vague memories
of Bradford, Halifax, Leeds and such where large square
finished stone blocks were used a lot.
Is it really 20+ years since I used to Rep up there ?

Re: Derby Friargate LNER Garage Layout

Another set of superb work broken down. It's those Grand Designs. I suppose nearly all of us fancy that big layout, but they're a white elephant for all but the fastest and richest workers. If you're well into your 70's like me there's no point in taking on something that involves 10 years, or more ...

Re: St.Oval - A scenic Set Track Oval

Oh dear, what a rubbish video, again.
One day I may learn how to pan more slowly.

Still it shows some chimneys in a front garden, not
happy with them so more to make.

Re: Layout Thoughts

It all depends on what you want to do. Are you interested in the building of a scenic piece of countryside with the odd train running through, or is all you want to do is run trains round and around. I know which I find boring. I'd be happy enough with a single line oval, but with the space you have...

Another good result, and at that price worth it.
Cleaning the wheel faces shouldn't be too difficult.

Re: St.Oval - A scenic Set Track Oval

Another £28 worth of trees, but hardly touched the surface. Looking at these I think another 6-10 larger trees needed. Being a visual Art form I'll be trying several different places for most, in particular another set of Woodland Scenics small to somehow get growing on the far side of the gorge. No...

Re: Peco ST5&6 points insulated joiners

You've had the info from Flashbang and as he says it's preferable to use insulated rail joiners on the two rails that go into the 'V' It is not an absolute essential, BUT I didn't use them on my first '00' layout and while it was fine for the diesel traction it was originally built for I found that ...

Re: High Peak Junction N Gauge

Hi LukeB,

I love the shape, so difficult to get away from the oblong, or square.
I do appreciate the ability of 'N' gaugers, I did try once and gave up.
