Re: NRM 2017 00 'Tour' STARTED

Thanks guys, my W&U based layout is in no fit state for a photo shoot, (not to mention no fit place for a Class 60, even a 20 would be pushing it,) so Guy had to visit Gantsville, but I had to draft in some familiar stock so he wouldn't get too scared and blow his top :)

Re: NRM 2017 00 'Tour' STARTED

Well, after a long trip and visiting a couple of yards along the way, Guy found himself arriving at Gantsville, hauled by 60008 and a couple of barrier wagons. https://image.ibb.co/k2Th76/guy1.jpg https://image.ibb.co/i7UYEm/guy2.jpg After detaching from the rear vans, Guy was pulled forwards to rel...

Re: NRM 2017 00 'Tour' STARTED

My only concern with a full size coach is that postage bumps up once you get above 30cm in length I think, otherwise, a new Norma would be welcome.

Re: NRM 2017 00 'Tour' STARTED

The issue with a loco, (even a cheap one,) is that some people run on DCC and it's not advisable to run DC locos on these layouts for any great length of time, indeed some controls I believe do not have a DC channel. I do like the idea of a coach that we populate, a hornby 4 wheeler would be ideal

Re: BMR Workbench.

Good to see you getting in the swing of things again, it's looking great, that is really an attractive, yet complicated livery.

Re: NRM 2017 00 'Tour' STARTED

Well that'd certainly be one way to wipe the coaling tower off the map if the load wasn't secure, such a pretty coaling stage too.

That looks great, the scenery is feeling a bit Polar Express-esque already.

Re: NRM 2017 00 'Tour' STARTED

Health is good overall, I'm never going to be gracing magazine front covers for my condition, but I can't complain :)

I have some home-made flock drying atm, need to get a move on if I'm to avoid too many bare patches of land when guy arrives.

Re: NRM 2017 00 'Tour' STARTED

Certainly looking good and I need to get some more scenery done, even if it isn't going to close to being completed. I'm pleasantly surprised how smooth things have gone this time around.

Re: Bufferstop's Bench Confessions of an Unrepentant Basher

Although 3D printing is never going to completely replace the old art of cobbling stuff together from plasticard, it's certainly becoming more and more accessible and as prices continue to drop, more and more people will be able to venture into modelling in this manner.

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

After a few days off I've almost finished weathering these 5 Dapol 16 Ton minerals not a bad line-up of wagons for £30 at today's RTR, or even kit prices. I still have to weather the chassis & running gear. https://image.ibb.co/i4qbtR/IMG_2523.jpg These look so tired, almost ready to have Conde...

Re: Tilley Yard South, Chicago, Winter 1956

I'm sad to see you not not owning this layout anymore, but completely understand your reasons for selling. It would be good if you can keep hold of one or 2 items of rolling stock, for when you're in a better place and can return to the hobby, but that of course is a personal decision. Thank you for...

Re: Bufferstop's Bench Confessions of an Unrepentant Basher

Alas, I only have a Samsung S3 mini at my disposal, (hence the poor pics on my own threads,) but I may have to try anyway, see what I end up with.
