Re: Steam Trains to Sovereign Street

My first little Hornby 0-4-0 was my second locomotive. A GWR 101 from when they first were made by Hornby. I had it pull ten bogie coaches at speed. However, stopping it with those ten coaches before it hit the buffers... Cruelty to little locos. :lol: ----------------------------------------------...

Re: Steam Trains to Sovereign Street

Thanks Berryman. Glad you like it. The layout was originally built to run diesels only. I had a small number of old 0.4.0 locomotives that were never run. I thought 'how nice if I could have a small 'fun' layout with steam locos running. Sovereign Street Station and yard was built. After three rebui...

Re: Diesel Trains to Glenburnie Station

Thanks, manna. I like trains to run through scenery. The story goes that the line was due for closure and was allowed to be run down and overgrown. At the eleventh hour the line was reprieved. That is where we are now. —and remain.

Re: Backscene blending

Hi Ewood. Welcome to the forum. I do like the photograph. The road looks to be going somewhere. As End2end has already mentioned, once the white lines are matched up it will make a big difference. Another thing to remember, as the view goes further away the white lines become non-existant and 'fade ...
