Not sure, but are they from the Hachette Build A Model Railway magazine?

Re: Diesels at Crown Point and Sovereign St.

On Monday I received an email from my model shop that some 40mm Bofors guns had arrived and was I still interested in them. I duly paid for them and they arrived Wednesday. Here they are on their first trip around the layout on Lomac vehicles, Class 47 47404 Hadrian in charge. IMG_5264.JPG A simple ...

Re: Gateside and Northbridge - Maybe Sometime!

. It will be really nice to have a comfortable warm room to work in! Jim Hi Jim. I had a layout in our attic. Although ideal size wise (40 odd feet x 20ft) I was hardly there. Then allowed 'the small bedroom' (11ft x 8ft) I never looked back. Family know exactly where I am. :lol: Looking forward to...

Re: Scaling in Four (or More) Dimensions

I think (in the main) that whilst a modeller will ensure a locomotive, coach , wagon, railway building etc. is 'true to scale' the scenery is a 'representation' of the real thing, because they do not have the room. Therefore a platform is not as long as the real one. A bridge or viaduct becomes shor...

Re: Diesels at Crown Point and Sovereign St.

Love the Consett Iron Ore wagons. Do you have the unloading bridge? Hi GeraldH. The Consett Iron Co wagons do not fit in with the area I am modelling. I run them 'whenever I have ten minutes of running anything'. The reason for having them is purely a family connection. Very close members of the fa...

Thank you Daniel for your kind words. I just try to create little scenes that I remember and have a model railway running through it. :)

Re: Steam Trains to Sovereign Street on a 1914/1919 theme

Clarence Dock has had a freshen up. Another 'downpour of rain. A bit of red. The post box has been changed to a Victorian style in keeping with the timeframe.

A new backscene at the end to give a more representation of the area.

Re: Diesels at Crown Point and Sovereign St.

I'd be a bit suspicious of that GPO Commer van . Never been in a Commer van, Bufferstop. A good story though. Drove a few units around the yard though, before I became a Transport Manager. :) The beauty of not having a terminus station like before, a train can be a lot longer. An oil train heading ...
