Re: Shawbury BR 1988-91ish in N guage

That first video Mark showed up some really neat platform detailing under your canopies! I take it all the departure screens are scratchbuilt? And isn't that 03 a nice little runner, I haven't seen one in action before.

Well it was a shame to see your old setup go, but I agree with the others there is some cracking building work going on there and those tower blocks really do feel like the real thing :wink: !

Crikes! Bottom of page 4! And it has been four months! Unfortunately not much has been done, due to commitments at university and work etc. What has been done was done in the past week or so! The Ballasting is a mix of woodland scenics extra fine brown and grey mixed, sealed in place with Pledge Mul...

Cheers mark. The realistic sound is the joint in the baseboard! Unfortunately only the camera seems to be able to pick it up, I can't here during normal running.

Not much to update on, but I have been experimenting with videos on my phone recently:

Picture quality isn't much, hopefully i'll use a better camera next time!

Doesn't matter what you call it Mark, it still looks great!

I take it you are using clear plasticard for those platform shelters?

Re: Ollerton 'N' 5'2"x3' Split Board

Update time! It has been a busy ten days, when not at work or revising, I have been taking Ollerton forward! Ollerton now has its basic landscape, the village area is all worked out roughly, and trackside items are progressing nicely. :) http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd289/tucker_ccf/Ollerton%2...

Re: Chester Northgate BR N guage 1987-92ish

I like! I understand the feeling about life in general getting in the way, that is what it felt like over Christmas. Very jealous of the HST, wish mine had more coaches!

I have been following this (quietly! :) ) since the beginning, and its a great layout, and a brave move to remove your hard done work, but your obviously cracking on at pace and I look forward to Sheaf Mk2 very soon!

Re: How many in favor of a more prototypical 'n' dcc 31

But you're right, I just won't bother in future. M Please do bother, yours and Grahame's sound advice has been helpful (to me at least). Just to add to the debate, if someone did a new 31, I would not buy it. I'm quite happy with the 31 I own and have other spending priorities. Personally I cannot ...
